Accomplishing Change in Teaching and Learning Regimes

This chapter tells the reader why they should read the book and explains its purposes and underlying principles. It outlines the purpose of developing a practice sensibility and elaborates on the concept, giving examples from higher education and elsewhere. It also sets out the structure of the book and describes each chapter’s contents. The opening chapters refresh the idea of teaching and learning regimes (TLRs) and discuss the ways in which they can be investigated; the ethnographic approach is explored and a case is made for a more practice-focused methodology.

Keywords:   Practice sensibility, ethnography, teaching and learning regimes, practice-focused, case study, higher education, change, social practice theory
