Revolution by stealth: The impact of learning development on democratising intelligence through constructive approaches to student support. Dr Stella Cottrell. August 2013.

When an organisation celebrates its tenth anniversary and has a large and growing membership, it feels as if a notable milestone has been reached. Often, this is an indicator that a concept has come of age or, at least, that new ways of thinking are becoming established in the collective psyche. 2013 marks the tenth anniversary for the formal organisation of learning development through ALDinHE. That is no mean feat in itself, and a tribute to the efforts not just of volunteers, but of pioneers and innovators in terrains that, 30-40 years ago, had been generally inhospitable and frequently impenetrable. Looking back over that longer time span, this anniversary for ALDinHE can be regarded as one important step in a larger movement focussed on a fundamental repositioning of learning and teaching within higher education.
