As a concept, ‘Teaching practices’ describe both the actual pedagogies adopted by academics engaged in the act of lecturing and the process of academic socialisation through which actors new to a particular academic programme, discipline or institution acquire the practical knowledge that distinguishes ‘good’ teachers and learners from those who ‘deviate’.
In the talk Dr Hanne Tange will explain how ‘teaching practices’ can be used as a starting point for theoretical and empirical work in the field of international higher education. Arguably, this places academic staff at the centre of institutional internationalisation processes, acknowledging how their practice is simultaneously constituted by and constituting macro-level developments such as globalisation, academic migration and ‘Englishisation’ of research and education.
The talk builds on the monograph 'Teaching Practices in a Global Learning Environment' (Routledge 2021) and presents the conceptual framework underpinning this.
