Book Description

Didactics, Learning and Leadership in Higher Education presents a new model for understanding development strategies for learning and leadership. It describes a shift in perspectives on teaching practices and develops concepts which facilitate a new discourse, placing learning and teaching strategies on the agenda and ensuring the development of good leadership practices inherent to teaching.

By applying Lacanian discourses to Klafki’s triangle in relation to learning strategies, this innovative new text aids discussion of the diff erences between terms such as ‘performance’ and ‘performativity’, ‘acting’ and ‘actorship’ to enable teaching staff to utilise practical applications and teach most eff ectively. It examines key points such as the likely outcomes of specifi c leadership strategies and how they can be adapted, thus creating an essential dialogue between students and teachers.

Combining research in the fi elds of philosophy, psychology, economics, geography and sociology describing a change in relation to use of time, space and management of matter, Didactics, Learning and Leadership in Higher Education is a key text for all those involved in teaching within higher education.
