The UK ‘Higher education (HE): teaching excellence, social mobility and student choice’ Green Paper (henceforth HEGP) was released in November 2015. One of the flagships of this initiative is the implementation of the teaching excellence framework (TEF), which will allegedly give power to the UK government to monitor and assess the quality of teaching in English universities. According to Times Higher Education, the new TEF seeks to ensure that students receive an “excellent” teaching experience that encourages “original thinking, drives up engagement and prepares them for the world of work, build a culture where teaching has equal status with research, provide students with the information they need to judge teaching quality and recognize institutions that do the most to welcome students and include a clear set of outcome-focused criteria and metrics”. HEGP consultation ended on 15 January 2016.
