New report published on the contribution of teaching to academic career advancement

RAEngThanks to all members who contributed to this piece of research (and you did in numbers), published today by the Royal Academy of Engineering.

The report, “Does teaching advance your academic career?” was based on interviews and surveys of the engineering academic community and found a profound difference between the perceptions of university managers and those delivering education through teaching.

Almost three quarters (74%) of engineering lecturers considered that teaching was not an important criterion for promotion to professorship, while over three quarters (77%) of senior managers reported teaching excellence to be “very” or “somewhat” important for promotion at their institution.

Members may download a copy of the full report from the Members’ Portal (see University Management and Capacity)…or visit the RAEng website.
