Call for contributions: survey on Reforming Academic Career Assessment

As a member of the Coalition for Advancing Research Assessment (CoARA), EUA is coordinating a Working Group on Reforming Academic Career Assessment (WG ACA). This Working Group aims to broaden the reflection on academic career assessment, taking into account the full range of work conducted by academics in research, teaching and learning, innovation, management/leadership and service to society.

More knowledge on challenges, enablers and change processes can greatly help higher education institutions and research organisations across the globe as they navigate their own reform initiatives. Therefore, the Working Group is conducting a survey to map existing initiatives of academic career assessment at higher education institutions and research organisations. This may include initiatives which aim to broaden the criteria and methods for evaluating the outputs and impacts of academic activities for the purposes of recruitment, performance evaluation and career progression of academic staff.

The collected information will inform the development of an online repository of case studies on academic career assessment and a dashboard of lessons learned. It will also be used to inform the development of an adaptable toolbox for academic career assessment that will cater for different institutional profiles and national contexts.

This survey is open to all higher education institutions and research organisations worldwide. Please feel free to disseminate this call within your extended network.

The survey is open until 22 March 2024.
