Developing a Supportive Environment for Teaching and Learning: A Case Study in a Pre-1992 UK University
Roberts, Carole; Oakey, Dorothy; Hanstock, Jane
Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management, v29 n3 p289-302 Nov 2007
This paper analyses the journey of one pre-1992 UK university towards the creation of an environment that supports teaching and learning effectively. This includes both a culture that values the scholarship of teaching and learning and pedagogic research and that provides a supportive environment for its students' development. It investigates the key internal events along this journey, demonstrating which of these have facilitated institutional-wide development. In order to do this, use is made of Cowan and Heywood's model of the curriculum development and renewal process. Conclusions are drawn on the characteristics of the events that have been most effective and on the general lessons learned. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
