Title:
Research and scholarship in a ‘HE in FE’ environment
Authors:

Abstract:
Academic staff working in higher education environments perform a wide variety of roles which are each integral to their professional identity. A fundamental constituent of this identity is the relative place and value of research and scholarship. The way in which such an identity transpires in a ‘HE in FE’ context is less understood, particularly in cases where academic responsibilities differ from the HE norm. This paper presents a study that details the perceptions and experiences of academic staff in a ‘HE in FE’ context in regards to their engagement in scholarly activity. Forty-four questionnaire respondents detailed both personal and institutional factors that contribute to the practical and philosophical challenges relating to the conduct of research. The value which is placed upon opportunities to engage in scholarly work often appeared unfulfilled; a range of barriers were described which ranged from workload related issues, issues of self-confidence and a perceived lack of institutional support. This study further emphasises the need to facilitate opportunities for research and scholarly activities within a growing segment of the HE marketplace.
