Redefining excellent learning and teaching in Scotland


This is a joint NUS Scotland and sparqs event, held to consult with student officers in universities about the ongoing discussions around the Teaching Excellence Framework and what it means for Scotland; proposed changes to NSS; and to help set the direction and priority areas for NUS Scotland.

During this event participants were asked redefine what excellent learning and teaching means for students in Scotland and what role students’ associations should have in setting that agenda. Participants also helped inform responses to QAA Scotland’s TEF consultation and HEFCE and SFC’s NSS consultation.

You can view the agenda for the event.  There are no materials from the event, but the outputs from the day will be disseminated as appropriate in due course.

The event hashtag, for use on Twitter, was #LTExc15

This event began at 10am and finished at 4pm. Lunch was provided and the event was free to attend.

The venue for the event was Stirling University's 'Enterprise Zone', located within the library of the Andrew Miller Building of the Stirling Campus.  See the University website for directions/maps etc. - https://www.stir.ac.uk/about/getting-here/
