In February, Trevor Cullen and Dawn Bennett attended the 1st world summit of the International Federation for national Teaching Fellows in Birmingham, England. Both fellows presented on their work. The IFNTF is going from strength to strength, with members from the UK and Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and emerging links with countries such as India. Attendees debated the definition of teaching excellence, including its ‘measurement’ in the new UK Teaching Excellence Framework. Excellence was also considered in three strands: high-impact pedagogies, excellence within the disciplines, and learning gain.
