Teaching and Learning in the Disciplines: An HEA-Funded Project. Summary Report
Bulman, Stephen
Higher Education Academy
The Higher Education Academy (HEA) established the Teaching and Learning Issues in the Disciplines project in spring 2015 in order to research the state of higher education teaching and learning in a wide range of subject disciplines from the viewpoint of academic teachers within those disciplines, and through the networks created by relevant learned societies and professional bodies. The HEA wanted to identify key themes and issues arising from higher education academics across the range of subject disciplines in order to best understand the sector's needs from a discipline perspective, and to determine how best to work with professional and learned bodies to meet those needs. This summary report reflects the common findings from across this diverse sample of individual societies and bodies, each of which faced a different blend of challenges and opportunities. The individual reports will be published later by the participating societies and professional bodies. The following are appended: (1) Professional and subject bodies that participated in the project; and (2) The questions used in focus groups.
