Accomplishing Change in Teaching and Learning Regimes

Paul Trowler

Oxford University Press

This chapter elaborates on the ways in which teaching and learning regimes in higher education can be investigated. The ethnographic approach, rooted in classical anthropology, is outlined and different flavours of it explored through critical engagement with examples of their application. The limits of ethnography are discussed, and a case is made for a practice-focused, multi-method research methodology to inform change initiatives.

Keywords:   Ethnography, research methodology, qualitative research, anthropology, practice-focused, change initiative, university, higher education, social practice approach
