Discussion paper

As part of its regulatory roles, TEQSA is required to assess evidence of ‘scholarship’ that is put forward by providers, whether evidence of scholarship by individuals, such as teaching staff within the provider, or for the provider as a whole.

TEQSA is seeking to review whether its current approach to assessing claims of scholarship and scholarly activity (as described in the Guidance Note on Scholarship) is adequate, or if the approach needs to be re-conceptualised. The purpose of this discussion paper is to set out, for consideration by the sector and other stakeholders, draft principles that are proposed to guide providers in making claims related to scholarship, and to inform TEQSA’s assessments of such claims.

This paper does not seek to replace established frameworks or long standing approaches to scholarship, but rather, seeks to elicit feedback on how TEQSA can improve its approach to assessing claims of scholarship and scholarly activity.
