The UK Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) as an illustration of Baudrillard's hyperreality

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    This article examines the 'Teaching Excellence Framework' (TEF) for UK universities through the lens of Jean Baudrillard's concept of hyperreality. I argue that the TEF is a hyperreal simulacrum, a sign which has no traceable genealogy to the practice of learning and teaching.
