The Government has made a new Teaching Excellence Framework one of its core higher education policies. There is also a renewed focus on the employability of recent graduates and the all-round student experience. Yet maintaining and enhancing the reputation of UK research remains a key priority too. This seminar will aim to look afresh at the purpose of higher education, including the right balance between teaching and other functions, such as research and contributing to economic growth.
Lord David Willetts, Executive Chairman of the Resolution Foundation and a Visiting Professor at King’s College London
Gwen van der Velden, Director of Learning and Teaching Enhancement, University of Bath
The seminar was invite-only but the two presentations were delivered on the record and a sound file is available on request.
