Measuring and comparing teaching quality in a number of different countries is no easy task, but it's a valuable exercise to give universities and students another perspective on what higher education learning can be.
We're in the pilot phase of this ranking, which is why we're explaining our methodology and calling on universities and governments to get involved to make the data set even richer.
Sara Custer is joined by Phil Baty, editorial director for global rankings, and Duncan Ross director of data and analytics.
The full results of this pioneering research will be announced at the Times Higher Education Teaching Excellence Summit at the University of Glasgow 10-12 July. Duncan Ross will explore the results in detail at the event. Register now to join the discussions.
