Abstract

Reviews the role of the Educational Development Unit and suggests that such units should focus primarily on building a learning environment appropriate to its host university, rather than paying a disproportionate amounts of attention to externally imposed targets. A unit should not of course ignore those targets, rather it should endeavour to manage them in a way that meets the work patterns of its own institution.
