The Scholarship of Academic Development

Synopsis

In recent times academic development has moved from the margins to the mainstream of higher education institutions. This book addresses the concept and nature of academic development and examines research into and within the field. It shows how academic development might be distinguished from and overlap with 'educational development' and 'staff development', and how it encompasses those activities concerned with developing learning and teaching in higher education at individual, departmental, faculty, institutional and even at national/international levels.The Scholarship of Academic Development addresses key questions:• What is academic development and how is it part of scholarly academic practice?• What are its roles and functions?• How can research be carried out into, and used in, academic development?The contributors to this volume represent a broad church of experience, roles and approaches to academic development, and to theorizing, researching and practising in this field. They have provided a significant resource to academic developers, to scholars of higher education practice, to higher education managers and policy-makers.
