Offering both a structured pathway for academic career progression and an evidence base on which to demonstrate and evaluate teaching achievement, the Framework provides a template that universities can adapt to their career structures and progression points. It can be used to advance teaching achievement across the academic career, including appointment, professional development, appraisal and promotion. Provided below are case studies of how the Framework has guided systemic change to reward and recognition systems in universities across the world
The Framework was evaluated, piloted and/or implemented by a group of partner universities. Their contributions both helped to improve the Framework’s design and provided guidance for other institutions using it in the future.
Annual meetings have been held since 2016, with an online gathering planned for 2020. They aim to establish a community of dialogue and a forum to discuss ideas for the reform of how universities reward teaching.
A summary document, aimed at university managers, has been produced to provide further information about the Framework and to offer guidance on how it might be implemented within university reward and recognition systems.
