States that one of the outcomes of globalization and the increasing competition between higher education institutions (HEIs) has been a move towards the accreditation of teaching in higher education. HEIs in other countries may be interested to learn from the UK experience where there has been much acrimony “behind the scenes”, as various associations and organizations have battled for power. Unfortunately, the main losers in this battle have been the “chalkface academics” whose collective voice has been “crying in the wilderness”. This article attempts to redress the situation by reiterating the main findings of a national research project on accreditation; and it concludes by evaluating progress to date from the perspective of 18 months after the completion of the study.
