Professionalism and Flexibility in Learning. SRHE Monograph 49.
Bligh, Donald, Ed.; And Others
Professionalism and flexibility in learning are considered in five seminar papers. In "Recommendations for Learning," Donald Bligh offers 17 recommendations for learning, based on the final discussions of a seminar of the Society for Research into Higher Education. The principles of professionalism and flexibility are applied to course design, teaching, learning, student assessment, teaching evaluation, and the needs of academic staff. In "Continuing Education Within Universities and Polytechnics," Richard Hoggart, Michael Stephens, John Taylor, and Richard Smethurst focus on the relationship of the universities and polytechnics to adults other than the 18-21 year old cohort. In "The Curriculum of Higher Education," Sinclair Goodlad, Brian Pippard, and Donald Bligh offer suggestions about ways of thinking about higher education curricula and possible policies to provide for flexibility and innovation. In "Assessment for Learning," Lewis Elton recommends that academic teachers who are concerned with student assessment and its reform should receive formal teacher training relevant to their work. Finally, in "Teaching and Learning," Paul Black and John Sparkes offer 13 propositions based on the need for higher standards and models for designing teaching systems, as well as consideration to personal attitudes and responses.
