Example text

For example, Evans (1993) argues that as a discipline English is more of an archipelago than a landmass and suggests that it is only when different disciplines are compared that they take on the appearance of homogeneity. In examining how the relations between disciplinary knowledge practices and teaching–learning interactions have been analysed in higher education research, I focus on work from a Communities of Practice perspective. Tight (2008) discusses the relative strengths of conceiving of disciplinary knowledge practices as ‘Tribes and Territories’ or in terms of ‘Communities of Practice’, while Becher and Parry (2005) argue that focusing on academic Communities of Practice moves away from focusing on the cognitive structure of pure disciplines to the social organization of more interdisciplinary subjects.

James (2007) argues that academics are members of multiple communities of practice that again are potentially conflicting, while Price (2005) argues that academic staff will draw on departmental, as well as their disciplinary communities, when assessing students’ work. One of the attractions of thinking about the disciplinary knowledge practices in terms of Communities of Practice is that it offers a way of conceptualizing students and academics as members of the same community. The academic can be seen as offering students, as peripheral but legitimate members of the community, a way of increasingly moving towards the centre of the disciplinary community.

Trowler et al. (2005) examine how national and institutional policies are filtered through different TLRs. Fanghanel (2004, 2006, 2007) has made similar arguments from a related standpoint. My suggestion is that a TLR can also be used to consider how particular institutional cultures are filtered through the ‘regimes’ related to particular teaching–learning interactions. The possibilities and tensions of a Teaching Learning Regimes analysis of the relations between institutional cultures and teaching–learning interactions In relation to the first aspect of relating structural–agentic processes and teaching–learning interactions, the TLR perspective gives a clear sense of how institutional cultures become situated in particular teaching–learning interactions.
