Academics' Concerns about "The Push for Flexible Delivery."
Lynch, Julianne; Collins, Francesca
As part of a study of educational innovation in information and communication technology (ICT) disciplines, 83 academics from relevant departments across Australia participated in mini-conferences where they identified and discussed the factors driving and inhibiting educational initiatives. Participants repeatedly noted the push for flexible delivery as a factor driving educational innovation. This paper explores participants' views on this push. Issues discussed include the direction in which academics perceive the push is pushing and academics' concerns about motivations behind the push, changing work practices and the disintegration of teaching, and implications for workload.
