Academic Identities and Policy Change in Higher Education

Front Cover
Jessica Kingsley, 2000 - Education - 286 pages
"The book is based on extensive fieldwork in eleven English higher education institutions and seven disciplines. Parts One and Two set the conceptual framework and outline briefly the extent of policy change at national and institutional levels. Part Three focuses on two specific policy initiatives as case studies, the quality assurance policies of the early 1990s and research assessment. The author considers the responses to them of academic leaders, higher education institutions and academics in the basic units, and examines how far they have affected the institutional environment and the framework of assumptions within which academics work.".
