Shifting Academic Careers: Implications for Enhancing Professionalism in Teaching and Supporting Learning
Locke, William
Higher Education Academy
This Higher Education Academy (HEA) commissioned report provides a brief review of literature focusing on the changing nature of academic careers in the higher education sector, including any shift towards "teaching only" contracts. It also identifies key issues in terms of teaching and learning, continuing professional development and reward and recognition arising from these developments. The report identifies two trends that have been central to the shifting careers of academics over the past two decades: the increasing differentiation and diversity of the profession and the gradual unbundling and disaggregation of academic work.
