Ruth Graham, under sponsorship from the Royal Academy of Engineering, has published The Career Framework for University Teaching (http://www.rhgraham.org/resources/Career-Framework-University-Teaching-April-2018.pdf). While geared to STEM it appears fairly generally applicable.
It highlights many of the issues we are all too familiar with – defining metrics for L&T activity and also issues around incentives with little reward to go beyond “competence” in teaching esp. if faced with pressures and incentives to do discipline research.
The report describes a 4 level framework,
- Effective Teacher
- Skilled and Collegial Teacher
- Is split into two equal merit levels – One is institutional leader, the other scholarly teacher
- National / global leader in teaching and learning
Level 4 is generally linked to Professorial level.
The report describes the levels and how they have been tested by a number of institutions worldwide.
This may (well) be of use – but still needs each University to interpret their own take on career progression for academics based on teaching/ expertise….
