Abstract

The authors have been carrying out an international, collaborative, mixed methods research study to understand how academics make sense of the competing pressures of teaching, research and administration, how they have been formed as academics and how they act to construct identities. This paper presents one aspect of that research.

This paper is concerned with the paradoxes and contradictions that are inherent in how teaching is planned and experienced in higher education. It looks at how teachers perceive their teaching role, how they interpret, reflect on and respond to the situations that they face and how they negotiate the constraints they feel they are under with the freedoms that they perceive they have.
