For a number of years, universities have undergone many transformations that are changing teaching and promoting the development of something new: university pedagogy. Teaching practices are changing under the influence of social and societal changes: massification, arrival of new technologies, the change in the relation to knowledge, new aspirations and increased student mobility, the need for diversified teaching methods, etc. New forms of teaching are appearing (problem-based learning, flipped classroom, distance, blended or co-modal learning, etc.), yet evaluation methods and learning spaces are changing too. And although, a few years ago, teacher training for university lecturers was almost non-existent, teaching support centres are now being created all over the world, whatever the typology of institutions, while at the same time the question of how to value lecturers’ commitment to their teaching practice is emerging.
