Opinion piece: A call to unite in a common cause

Chris Rust

Abstract


This opinion piece argues that despite the successes of the Learning Development network, and the learning development community, separate development of this community may also have some dangers. It further argues that now is an auspicious time to try and bring about a paradigm shift in the attitudes of academic staff towards their role as teachers in higher education. Having presented the reasons why, it suggests that in order to increase the chances of bringing this about, the learning development and educational development communities should come together.
