Class, Gender, Race and the Teaching Excellence Framework: Diversity Deficits in Higher Education Evaluations | Deadline: 30 Sept 2018
CALL FOR BOOK CHAPTERS: This collection aims to provide a lively, intellectual debate about gendered, raced and classed implications of the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). It will critically consider of the notion of ‘teaching excellence’ in higher education and the TEF’s claim to measure it unproblematically. We anticipate that chapters will offer an alternative critical lens, exploring the increasing evidence that TEF as a quality assurance mechanism reflects and reproduces biases that impact negatively on different staff groups in the HE sector such as women, BAME and disabled staff. Finally, the collection will ask what lessons can be learned from a decade of practice and analysis.
The editors welcome contributions that consider the implications of TEF for equality, diversity and inclusion in educational practice and for a diverse academic workforce.
Please submit a 350 word abstract and a brief chapter outline to email@example.com
Fourth Conference of the ESREA Network | Deadline: 18 December 2018
The Fourth Conference of the ESREA Network on Policy Studies in Adult Education “Adult Education and Learning Policy in a World Risk Society” will take place on 16-18 May 2019, at the Faculty of Arts, Charles University, Prague, the Czech Republic.
The aim of the conference is to focus on the problem that adult education and learning policy may ignore contemporary risks (mainly social, economic, political, cultural, environmental), or it may respond to them in adequate or inadequate ways – causing to them, exacerbating them, addressing or even preventing them.
Scholars from all countries are invited to submit proposals, and papers may relate to any part of the world. Full information can be found in the First Call for papers, attached to this message.
