British Academy issues invitation to tender on excellence in humanities and social sciences teaching

11 Mar 2016

The British Academy is wishing to construct an evidence base to demonstrate excellence in the ways in which humanities and social sciences is taught at UK universities. 


As part of this, the Academy will commission an analysis of teaching across its disciplines.


This project forms part of the Academy’s remit to promote the value of its disciplines, and to monitor the higher education ecosystem, policy developments, and appropriately evidence its representations to Government. 


The Academy is looking to commission a researcher or team of researchers to develop an analysis of ‘excellence’ in humanities and social sciences teaching, including producing between 10 and 15 case studies of courses or individuals (the unit of analysis for case studies should be decided by the researchers, and may vary across the case studies). These should be written with a non-expert audience in mind.
