About the Author

Paul Ashwin is Professor of Higher Education at Lancaster University, UK.


'A major contribution to the study of teaching and learning in higher education through its perceptive analysis of theoretical frameworks and their implications. Ranging across studies of perception, identity, activity systems, field and pedagogic device, Paul Ashwin offers both an accessible review and a wealth of ideas for the future development of understanding.' Andrew Pollard, Professor of Education and supports educational research, Institute of Education, University of London, UK, University of Bristol, UK, and University of Cambridge, UK

'Ashwin's analysis of teaching-learning interactions is insightful and will be useful to any college teacher who reads it. He writes well so that the book is both thoughtful and readable.' Bill McKeachie, Professor Emeritus, University of Michigan, USA

‘The book ends with a call for more empirical studies that examine the relations between "particular sets of structural-agentic process and teaching-learning interactions" (p. 141) where the empirical data and the explicit conceptual framework interrogate each other. I am already recommending it to those engaged in these studies.' British Educational Research Journal

‘A really important book to be taken note of by higher education researchers. It will be especially useful to readers who are new to sociological theory. Its key contribution is in offering an even-handed appraisal of existing research, and in pushing the research community to move in new and promising directions. The book provides some very useful assistance for the journey.' Studies in Higher Education

'Analysing Teaching-Learning Interactions in Higher Education does a very good job of examining theoretical frameworks for teaching and learning in higher education contexts and select educational systems of European heritage. If you are fatigued with the same old binary debates in American mainstream publication - teaching versus learning, student-centered versus teaching-centered pedagogies, or disciplinary content versus critical thinking - this book might be right for you.' Journal of Educational Research
