Abstract

The focus here is on the social and intellectual purposes of higher education, the interrelationship of the academy and the wider world and the tensions between the development of discipline-specific and discipline-transcendent skills. The book explores five themes: Disciplines and their Epistemological Structure, Ways of Thinking and Practising, Exploring Disciplinary Teaching and Learning from a Socio-cultural Perspective, Learning Partnerships in Disciplinary Learning, Disciplines and their Interactions with Teaching and Learning regimes. Each theme comprises a research-based chapter and two 'reactive' chapters written by academics, thus combining theory and practice 9780415965217, Routledge, 2008.
