Audit Culture and the Infrastructures of Excellence: On the Effects of Campus Management Technologies
Vonderau, Asta
Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, v8 n2 p29-47 Sum 2015
Drawing upon ethnographic data, this article investigates the effects of a new online campus management system in one of the largest universities in Germany. It shows the various ways in which this technological innovation influenced students', teachers' and administrative personnel's relations and everyday working practices and how it is influential in the reorganisation of university structures. The online management system is regarded as an important part of an emerging infrastructure of excellence, which materialises the changing understanding of qualitative studies and teaching. Findings show that the online management supports standardised and economised study, teaching and administrative practices and silences creativity and flexibility. However, these standardisations are negotiated and questioned by the actors involved.
