Cultures of counting: Metrics through a critical lens

Some Research Bites attendees may be interested in the Cultures of counting: Metrics through a critical lens seminar on Tuesday 24th May, 1-3pm.

In this seminar, James Wilsdon, who chaired The Metric Tide, will outline its main findings, and reflect on ongoing efforts to influence debates about UK research policy and funding, including over the design of the next Research Excellence Framework (REF), which is currently the focus of a further review by Lord Stern.

Paul Ashwin, in the context of the proposed TEF, will examine the challenges of developing measures of teaching quality that do not simply reflect institutional prestige.
