Building teaching capacities in higher education

Auteur(s): Alenoush Saroyan et Mariane Frenay

This book – the result of a collaboration of teams of faculty developers, professors, and graduate students from eight institutions in five different Europeans and North American countries – provides a unique international perspective on university-level pedagogy, and offers a new model for educational development.

This collaboration aimed to conceptualize what an internationally appropriate, formal academic program for faculty development in higher education might look like, taking into account differing national contexts – from a framework of national standards for faculty development (U.K. and Scandinavia), to almost universal institutional support (North America), through to the virtual absence of formal programs (France). The first section comprises five case studies that describe current practice in Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, and Switzerland, and a synthesis chapter that provides a framework for comparing the different systems.

The second objective of the international collaboration was to create and nurture a community of practice, enriched and informed by the contributors’ range of expertise, different higher education traditions, and cultures. This second section of the book presents the culmination of this work a concrete and comprehensive concept map that captures the essence of educational development in higher education, and that defines the necessary skills, expertise, and knowledge. This map can be used to define curricula for education development, and offers guidance on professional development for anyone involved in faculty and educational development.

The book offers practitioners around the world a general framework and model of educational development. The model can serve a number of purposes. It can be used for professional development, for monitoring and assessing the effectiveness of development programs, and to inform research about how best to meet increasing demands for public accountability. For North American readers it offers insight into vision and aims of the Bologna Process with which they may need to engage to maintain international competitiveness. For Europeans, it provides models of best practices and benchmarks for educational development as their institutions become more proactive in developing teaching in their programs.
