Teaching Excellence Framework - special edition of Compass - Journal of Learning and Teaching

Prior to the publication of TEF assessments on 12th June (embargoed until 14th June when they go public) , we would like to announce publication of a TEF special edition in our open access journal Compass: Journal of Learning and Teaching. A table of contents is listed below and you can access individual articles or the whole pdf HERE

These opinion pieces review the value of the TEF and examine common concerns such as the chosen metrics and viability of the framework. While the direct link between the TEF and tuition fees has been stalled, and several other changes have been put forward by the House of Lords, the areas of discussion raised in this edition continue to be relevant and important points of consideration. We would like to thank all our authors for helping us to create such a topical and vibrant issue and hope you enjoy reading the articles. We would be happy to publish any articles written in response to the Special Edition in our next Issue so we can keep alive fruitful critical discussion of teaching excellence and how to achieve it.

Can today's crisis in mental health be seen as the result of neoliberalism? We asked the panelists to reflect on the aftermath of the 2007/08 financial crisis and the austerity policies which followed, but then to engage with how the slashing of expenditure on public services and increase in private debt has been met with questions around whether these factors are exacerbating mental health problems. This event titled, ‘Mental Health and Neoliberalism’, sought to situate the growing…

Afflicted: how vulnerability can heal medical education and practice

Posted by Jill Anderson on February 7, 2018 at 22:47 0 Comments

In Afflicted, Nicole Piemonte examines the preoccupation in medicine with cure over care, arguing that the traditional focus on biological intervention keeps medicine from addressing the complex realities of patient suffering.

Piemonte fills that gap, examining why it is that…
