Bridging the gap between academic cultures of teaching: Ethics, Particularity and Interdisciplinarity in Academic Development Programmes

Research output: Other contributionWeb publication/Blog post


The purpose of this article is to construct an ethical position of Academic Development Programmes where managerial, top-down principles, are rejected because of the disciplinary resistance such positions bring in the reluctance of recognising existing teaching practices. Instead a focus on particularity through the acceptance of professional difference in an interdisciplinary dialogue is put forward where comparative didactics and interfaith dialogue bring new abilities for university teachers to become better practitioners within their own fields of teaching.
