Developing Your Teaching

Dr Christopher Wiley has featured as a case study in a new book publication on teaching in higher education.

The second edition of Developing Your Teaching: Towards Excellence by Peter Kahn and Lorraine Anderson, in Routledge’s Key Guides for Effective Teaching in Higher Education series, includes vignettes and case studies on a wide range of topics.

Dr Wiley’s case study, ‘Going the extra mile with a postgraduate teaching qualification’, draws upon his experiences in reading for the degree of MA in Academic Practice at City University London, from which he graduated in 2015, in order to consider the benefits of higher education teaching qualifications.

It is a streamlined and reworked version of an essay that Dr Wiley previously published in Educational Developments, The Magazine of the Staff and Educational Development Association (SEDA), in December last year.

Dr Christopher Wiley publishes article on module evaluation surveys in Studies in Educational Evaluation journal

X0191491XDr Christopher Wiley has published an article on standardized student evaluation of teaching in the peer-reviewed journal Studies in Educational Evaluation (ISSN: 0191-491X).

Dr Wiley’s article, ‘Standardised module evaluation surveys in UK higher education: Establishing students’ perspectives’, explores the views of student representatives at a single university.

Originally developed in partial fulfilment of the degree of MA in Academic Practice, this research indicates that standardizing module evaluation limits its applicability to local contexts, and that caution should be exercised over interpreting its results in isolation.
