Oh to Be a Scholar--An HE in FE Perspective
Feather, Denis
Journal of Further and Higher Education, v36 n2 p243-261 2012
This paper considers conceptions of the term "scholarship" amongst lecturers delivering business higher education programmes (BHEPs) in further education colleges (FECs). A condensed overview of leading authors' work on the subject of scholarship is first considered; then, at the end of the paper, an alternative definition is offered in the hopes of stimulating discussion. The data was drawn from a doctoral study by the author (2009) looking at this subject area, and is based on findings from primary data collected in 2006-7. Due to the lack of published work in and on higher education (HE) in further education (FE) at that time, the study drew heavily on literature from HE. This paper highlights potential issues and anxieties of the lecturers who took part in the study, and identifies that the term "scholarship' is not one familiar to, or easily defined by, those delivering BHEPs in FECs.
