Roxa, Torgny; Martensson, Katarina
Higher Education Research and Development, v27 n2 p155-168 Jun 2008
Conditions for teaching and learning in higher education are changing and, thereby, demand development in teaching practices and the student learning experience. This paper explores some issues and processes in relation to strategic change in higher education institutions (HEIs), with a focus on educational developers and their ability to contribute to the development of teaching and learning. It also describes a national Swedish initiative with the overall purpose to promote professional development of educational developers. This initiative was designed to enhance strategic perspectives, as well as scholarly knowledge formation, within the educational development field. The initiative, its results and conclusions are considered relevant also to other higher education systems. (Contains 5 figures and 4 endnotes.)
