Summary
Many people work in higher education; few pause to examine their experience. This book offers a unique range of fresh perspectives on higher education work. It analyses who are the workers in higher education, their patterns of employment, and what motivates them. It looks at the changing nature of higher education work, not only teaching and research work by academics but also the growing role of others such as professional librarians and information scientists. And it examines the context for higher education work, by looking at changing patterns of academic culture, professionalism and control. Leading academics, managers and practitioners provide analysis, reflections on experience, case studies and more light-hearted contributions. This book is for anyone who wants to reflect on their experience of working in higher education, for all who study higher education, and for anyone who works with higher education and wants to understand it better
