Higher education globally is operating in a highly volatile context, a consequence of the rapid globalisation and intense technological change characteristic of the early 21st century. These forces challenge assumptions about work, productivity, and international demand for knowledge, skills and resources, igniting needs for highly competent and educated graduatesTo remain viable, universities have to build their capacity to respond promptly, positively and wisely to an interlaced combination of ",change forces",. One approach is to instigate a redesign of institutional learning and teaching to enhance subject discipline knowledge and skills. An alternative approach is to provide an additional learning and teaching framework that builds institutional knowledge and capabilities and connects them to the university's strategic plan. Taking a longitudinal perspective, covering seven years and three separate research projects, this book focuses on the alternative approach. Producing Pedagogy describes the development and subsequent evaluation of a whole-of-institution approach to pedagogy based on five associated principles: Sustainability, Engagement, Scholarship, Flexibility, and Contextual Learning. This refereed volume provides an opportunity to gain insights about the development of pedagogy in a regional university as well as its capacity to reflect and to build staff and student knowledge, skills, and capabilities and connect them to the university's strategic plan.
