Under Pressure: An Exploration of the Module Design Experiences of Academic Staff Employed in One UK University
Binns, Carole
Journal of Further and Higher Education, v41 n6 p817-830 2017
This paper discusses some of the qualitative data obtained from a small number (23) of semi-structured interviews of academic staff who are involved in module design, and who are employed within one UK university. Analysing the interview transcripts produced eight main themes. One of these themes was the perceived pressures or constraints on design. Using verbatim responses given by the interviewees, a discussion of the data used to illustrate this theme compares the findings of this project with those from the existing literature.
