This chapter takes up the suite of policies that reflect a growing determination of national governments to manage university teaching as a mechanism for building the alignment between higher education and the economy. It examines the policy trajectories of higher education systems in targeting teaching within quality assessment and funding mechanisms. These mechanisms produce what Stronach, Corbin, McNamara and Warne (2002) call an 'economy of performance'. that attends selectively to those aspects most readily made visible and measurable and, at the same time, re-orients the field from 'teaching' to 'learning' .
