The Teaching Recognition and Reward (TR&R) Learning Circle aims to be able to inform institutional deliberations on issues of:
- Parity of research and teaching
- Teaching career development
- Recognition and reward of teaching activity
This learning circle aims to provide scholarly evidence-based advice and input to the institutional consideration of these issues. It will achieve this by a systematic review and critical appraisal of the corpus of research conducted in this field in recent decades and, to provide a focus to this intention. We aim to help inform all aspects of recognition and reward of the full diversity of teaching activities, and to support and enthuse the promotion and adoption of excellent teaching practices across the institution.
It is a further intention to engage the WIHEA Fellowship in focus groups to gather structured data that may best represent the current situation across the institution as well as the aspirations of the teaching academy.
The TR&R Learning Circle have also shared a Good Practice guide for departments in supporting promotions applications for teaching focussed staff.
Current areas of activity include continued work on the recent changes to the promotion criteria following the first round of promotions 2019. We are also exploring ongoing reward and recognition of teaching activities and revisiting earlier outputs to see what further work may be needed.
On the 13 December 2017, the Learning Circle held a Teaching Recognition and Reward Symposium which included presentations from three particularly well-informed speakers a video of the symposium is available to watch.
Engagement from other WIHEA Fellows is sought and encouraged to provide a balanced representation across all Faculties, as well as a range of teaching-related appointments and experience.
Please see the News & Events page for dates of future meetings.
