Pleschová, Gabriela and Simon, Eszter and Quinlan, Kathleen M. and Murphy, Jennifer and Roxa, Torgny (2012) The professionalisation of academics as teachers in higher education. Discussion paper. European Science Foundation, France (KAR id:60324)


This position paper is an outcome of the European

Science Foundation’s Exploratory Workshop ‘The

Impact of Training for Teachers in Higher Education’

held 18–20 March 2010 in Bratislava with the participation

of 20 international academics engaged

in both teacher training and researching teaching

and learning in higher education. One of the conclusions

of the workshop was that directing attention

to teaching in higher education is critical for the

future of European higher education. Accordingly,

this paper calls the attention of policy makers in

Europe to the pressing need to improve the quality

of teaching in higher education and makes recommendations

at the European, national and institutional

levels to achieve this.
