The University will be transitioning to a new capability framework which is to be launched in 2020. This page is provided as a continuing resource for staff during this transition phase.
The Teaching Performance Expectations (TPEs) formed an integral component of the University's strategy Opening UTAS to Talent: The UTAS Academic (approx 2014-2017). The TPEs provided expectations based on the idea that:
Outstanding teaching practice must be informed by a pedagogy based on substantive educational scholarship as well as sound disciplinary knowledge, and tested against appropriate benchmarks inside and outside the University (p. 3).
The TPE framework was also aligned to the UK Higher Education Academy's (now Advance HE) Professional Standards Framework (PSF) to support staff gaining external recognition and accreditation for their teaching, learning support, curriculum and professional activities.
There are rubrics which may be used to consider performance for each of the Academic Levels (A-E). Please use the tabs below to access each of these.

To assist staff in the development and implementation of teaching practice in line with the TPEs, the Tasmanian Institute of Learning and Teaching (TILT) provides a range of supports. Here you can find some brief information about this support, organised by the three TPE domains.
