Sue Blackmore Reader in psychology University of the West of England, Bristol. Clarification. Sue Blackmore spells out why the teaching quality assessment exercise displays scant regard for the truth.
In my reaction to Bruce Charlton's views,
I said I was asked to lie for the teaching quality assessment exercise. What had upset me was being asked, by another institution, to provide a letter that would look unsolicited - when obviously it was not.
Unfortunately, the crucial sentence was edited out of my letter. So let me be clear.
I would happily praise the good work of these students, they deserve it - but no one should be soliciting "unsolicited" letters as proof of excellence.
