Dr Christopher Wiley was invited to guest-host the first Learning and Teaching in Higher Education Twitter chat (#LTHEchat) of 2021, which took place on 13 January. #LTHEchat runs weekly on Wednesdays on Twitter from 8-9pm GMT and involves HE and FE practitioners from the UK and internationally at all stages of their career.

#LTHEchat No. 193, on the subject of ‘Evaluating Student Evaluation of Teaching’, anticipates the publication of the forthcoming SEDA SpecialStudent Evaluation of Teaching: From Performance Management to Quality Enhancement, which Dr Wiley has co-edited, and was also mindful of his pedagogic research on student evaluation of teaching (SET).

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.
