Cordiner, Moira – International Journal for Academic Development, 2014

Neame, Charles – International Journal for Academic Development, 2013
Many institutional cultures resist change, and within universities academic developers vary their response to such resistance, depending on the type of change, the institution and their own characteristic styles, working preferences and strategic judgements. Variables influencing the successful introduction of innovation in academic practice…

Fraser, Kym; Ryan, Yoni – International Journal for Academic Development, 2012
Although it can be argued that directors of central academic development units (ADUs) are critical to the implementation of university teaching and learning strategies, it would appear there is a high director turnover rate. While research in the USA, the UK, and Australia illustrates that ADUs are frequently closed or restructured, that research…

McLean, Neil – International Journal for Academic Development, 2012
Current thinking on academic identities is heavily influenced by developments in other disciplines, notably sociology. This accords with Haggis's (2007) challenge for educational researchers to engage with current theory and methods from across the social sciences. However, the traditional sister discipline to education, psychology, seems…

This paper, which reports on a small pilot study of how Canadian academic development is…
