    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This paper uses the notion of perspectives, derived from Activity Systems Theory as a lens through which to examine the process of change in one UK university. It argues that change is a multidimensional phenomenon and so examines the drivers and barriers towards change in teaching practices through the differing and at times conflicting viewpoints of those involved. This is a qualitative case study, based on in-depth interviews.
