Lecturers Learning to Teach: The Role of Agency
Omingo, Mary
International Journal for Academic Development, v24 n2 p122-134 2019
Lecturers may be exposed to the same Academic Development Programme but their course of action at personal and professional level vary. In this paper, I analyze the lecturers' contribution in shaping their learning to teach. I interviewed twenty-five lecturers in four private universities in Kenya using semi-structured interviews. The analysis showed that the onus to learn how to teach lies with the individual lecturer (agency) especially in contexts that lack a systematic approach to lecturers' learning. Academic developers may be interested in understanding how the exercise of agency in learning how to teach leads to variations in lecturers' actions.
