Impact of Teaching Development Programmes in Higher Education. HEA Research Series
Parsons, David; Hill, Inge; Holland, Jane; Willis, Dick
Higher Education Academy
In May 2012, the Higher Education Academy (HEA) asked HOST Policy Research (HOST) to conduct an intensive review of the impact of teaching development programmes in higher education (HE). This is a timely assessment, which coincides with the adoption of a revised framework for professional standards by the HEA and growing policy interest in teaching development of academic staff. It also comes at a time of growing scholarly interest in improving teaching quality, with a widening research base providing the focus of this review. This report follows an intensive review period. It is presented as a "state of the art," evidence-based assessment of the impact of HE-based teaching development programmes and initiatives. It also looks at the strengths (and weaknesses) of the research base from which the evidence is drawn, and reflects on the lessons for developing evidence-based future policy developments. Two annexes are included: (1) Research issues and questions; and (2) Bibliography.
