SEDA - summer news

Today, on behalf of SEDA Exec I have submitted a response to the BIS White Paper, based on the comments we received. In it we welcomed the focus on teaching excellence, warned about competition and suggested that the data on those meeting UKPSF at all levels could be helpful for students in choosing universities. We also welcomed the focus on rewarding teaching and promotion routes which reflect this.Thank you to everyone who contributed.

Over the summer, SEDA exec members held a meeting with William Locke, Head of Learning and Teaching at HEFCE. A point for discussion was the plan to open up degree awarding powers to bodies who wouldn't necessarily deliver the higher education programmes themselves. We discussed the kind of evidence that might be required by such bodies to indicate quality assurance and enhancement.
