Beyond the Robbins Trap: Reconceptualising Academic Responses to Change in Higher Education (or...Quiet Flows the Don?).
Trowler, Paul
Studies in Higher Education, v22 n3 p301-18 Oct 1997
An ethnographic study of a post-1992 British university looks at how faculty respond to changing policies and take actions that, intentionally or not, have the effect of changing policy outcomes. Argues that greater understanding of academic behavior is needed and that researchers must understand how structural factors (educational ideologies, cultural issues, rewards) interact with discipline-related issues in particular contexts.
