Academics' experiences and conceptions of research and teaching: developing the relationship between these activities to enhance student learning within different disciplines and institutions

Given the complex and contradictory policy situation surrounding research and teaching this project explores what is influencing the discourse ideas and practices of individual academics working in universities.

This project is concerned with exploring the experiences and conceptions that academics in different disciplinary areas have about 'research' and 'teaching' the relationship between these activities and their views on ways in which this may enhance the student learning experience. The study is concerned to explore the experiences and perceptions of academics by locating them within specific institutional/departmental and disciplinary cultures and exploring how this may impact on their conceptions of 'research' 'teaching' and the relationships between them.
