Title Performing Research at University Centers for Academic Development - An Explorative Case Study in Sweden
Author Stigmar, Martin ; Edgren, Gudrun
Date 2017
English abstract
The aim is to explore the absence or presence of, and motives for, research at centers for academic development and to problematize the research situation among academic developers. Boyer's and Healey's theories are used as lenses for the analysis based on the questionnaires that were used for data collection. The conclusion is that research is a challenged and sensitive field at university centers for academic development, teaching positions and research funds are needed. Research is usually not included in the mission for centers; staff does not normally hold research positions. Unclear research directions and opposing interests, weaken the centers’ possibility to hire qualified staff and deliver high-quality teaching.
