Overview

Universities across the world are striving to enhance the quality of the student experience; central to this mission is the establishment of an academic culture that celebrates, rewards and supports university teaching achievement. As part of a global partnership, the Teaching Cultures Survey will enable universities to explore and track the culture and status of teaching at their institutions and compare outcomes with peer universities worldwide. Evidence will be gathered via a short online survey of the university academic population, focusing on their perceptions, aspirations and experiences in teaching. For each participating university, the survey results will shed light on strengths and weaknesses of their teaching culture as compared to global peer institutions, providing a springboard for priority-setting and strategic investment.
