2019 HEPI / Advance HE Parliamentary Breakfast Seminar: How best to teach undergraduates – can universities learn from schools?

  • 21 March 2019
  • 8.30am - 10.15am
  • House of Commons, London SW1A 0AA

At a time when academics specialising in education are paying an unprecedented amount of attention to ‘what works’ in the teaching of school children, there is – arguably – less attention paid to the question of how best to teach university undergraduates. This is especially topical given the way the Teaching Excellence and Outcome Framework continues to evolve. In the new regulatory landscape for HE, with the student interest the key focus and driver for change in the sector, does there exist an opportunity to learn more from the world of schools about how to ensure teaching gets the focus it deserves?
