There’s a proposal for a national HE teacher education system – the Universities Accord could make it happen. It’s in a paper commissioned by the O’Kane Accord team from the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education, with “input” from the Department of Education, released last Tuesday. The headline proposal is a National Centre for Higher Education Advancement, rather like the lost and lamented Office of Learning and Teaching. Located, perhaps, in the all-but-announced Australian Tertiary Education Commission, it could:
  • “Develop and accredit quality professional development programmes,” particularly for new HE teachers;
  • Train and accredit assessors for “at-scale” formal peer reviews of teaching;
  • Establish a professional standards framework;
  • Pilot national accreditation of HE institutions’ peer review of teaching programs and certification of multi-institution PD programs;
  • Mandate minimum teaching qualifications entry level people; and
  • Define portable PD entitlement for sessionals.
