Teaching Excellence – What Do We Do And Ought To Do. Towards A European Certificate Of TE?

The project “The European Network on Teaching Excellence (E-note)” hereby presents a Roundtable about Teaching Excellence in Europe. Despite the Bologna process and the ambitious proposal of the creation of a European Education Area with the aim of strengthening teaching and mobility efforts, approaches to training and reward schemes of professors, higher education teachers and doctoral supervisors are still mostly confined to single institutions or national policies and lack international transparency and comparability. What is needed in the long-term is a truly European approach to promoting and rewarding minimum standards of teaching excellence.
Therefore, the overarching objective of the European Network on Teaching Excellence (E-note) is to contribute to more transparency, coherence and convergence in the field of the training, promotion and reward of higher education teaching skills. We do this by developing a blueprint for a common higher education teaching qualification scheme, including a comprehensive mapping exercise, best practice guide, elements of a common training curriculum and a self-assessment tool as well as evaluation guidelines.
At the Roundtable, the E-Note project presents the results of the Mapping of existing Teaching Excellence qualification schemes, training courses, and examples of evaluations and measurements of TE. Two discussants reflect upon the question: What can we learn from the mapping? One discussant is from UK representing a country with yearlong experiences with Teaching Excellence qualification schemes and so on. The other discussant represent a country without a nationwide setting for Teaching Excellence. The Roundtable is an opportunity for the participants to exchange experiences with Teaching Excellence qualification schemes, training courses and best practice and discuss the potentials and challenges of standardizing and preserving heterogeneity at the same time.
