Closed petition Ensure high quality university lecturing by making pedagogy training mandatory

We believe a basic level of pedagogy training should be mandatory for all university staff who are to lecture to students. This would ensure they possess skills vital for successful lecturing. It should cover points such as lecture pacing, accessible slide formatting and answering questions.

More details

University tuition fees across the UK now widely reach £9,250 and beyond. Value for money is more important than ever but we, the undersigned, have first-hand experience of poor lecturing being far too common, with lecturers unable to answer simple questions and delivering content in too complex a form.

We respect lecturers' knowledge but feel more needs to be done to ensure high teaching quality. This will lead to more capable graduates who can drive UK academia and industry for years to come.
