Presented by Professor Janice Kay, CBE, Provost at the University of Exeter on 1 November 2017.
Prior to her role as Provost, Professor Kay spent 10 years as Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Education during which time the University consistently achieved top 10 nationally in the National Student Survey and she has recently been appointed the Deputy Chair of the TEF Panel.
Following refreshments with the WIHEA Fellows, the seminar which attracted a large number of staff and students, considered educational excellence in this new political era. Janice spoke about the future role of TEF and subject level TEF and how these exercises will shape the thinking of students and higher education institutions about excellence in education. The seminar also explored the importance of students as participants in their own learning in the context of increased marketisation.
