Redressing the balance

The Academy has today published the report of a project considering the undervaluation of teaching in UK academic careers following-up its 2010 report ‘Redressing the balance: the status and valuation of teaching in academic careers’.

Despite wide acceptance and increasing concern of the need to redress the balance between teaching and research, much remains to be done.

The report calls for an urgent change in higher education culture to ensure widespread implementation of the 2010 recommendations. It outlines relevant changes in higher education since 2010, examples of good practice and the remaining challenges and the opportunities for improvement. It concludes by identifying next steps for further progress, suggesting roles for higher education institutions and their departments, as well as the national bodies such as the Higher Education Academy and learned societies.

For further information on the project, including activities undertaken and people involved, please visit the project page.

The project was undertaken in conjunction with The Physiological Society, Society of Biology and Heads of University Biosciences (HUBS) (a special interest group of the Society of Biology).
