Developing a National Framework of Teaching Expectations in Higher Education: March 2-22, 2009

Facilitators: Gary HuntGary Hunt and Vivian NealVivian Neal
Wiki Minder: Alice MacphersonAlice Macpherson
Gary is part of a collaborative team developing a national plan which could provide for accreditation of teacher training programmes and certification of post-secondary teachers in Canada. Vivian is teaching in a mandatory teaching and learning program for all new lecturers/faculty at the University of Plymouth, UK, that is undergoing a complete re-design.

During this seminar, we invite you to share your experiences from all countries - those that have developed standards and credentialing requirements for teaching in higher education, and those who are considering them. Through the exploration of the theoretical and pragmatic issues of implementing credentialing programmes, we hope to come up with a set of best practices and a framework design that may be suitable for a wide range of programmes with similar goals.
