This chapter develops a theoretical understanding of how teaching and learning regimes come about—their genesis and their evolution. It begins with a discussion of the power of disciplines in conditioning practices in university departments, a strong theme in the literature. While disciplinary differences are often important in conditioning local cultures, other factors are also at play. The genesis of teaching and learning regimes is multi-causal, dynamic, contextually contingent, and conditioned by history and its selective deployment. These characteristics are illustrated through vignettes and case studies. This chapter sets the scene for the one which follows.

Keywords:   Academic disciplines, epistemological essentialism, history, backstories, university, higher education, local culture, teaching and learning regimes
