Abstract

This paper outlines a professional development framework for teachers in higher education, based on the United Kingdom Professional Standards Framework. The framework outlined in this paper has been designed to align with a range of other evolving models of tertiary teaching standards, extending these to identify performance indicators at three different levels of operation: teaching classes, coordinating units and, leading programs. The model is generic in terms of its overall design, but explicitly incorporates disciplinarity within the levels of operation to enable application to a variety of fields. The way in which this framework will be tailored for teaching mathematical sciences, as part of an Australian Learning and Teaching Council Project, is also discussed.
