While the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching
is heralding a new
era which will see important advances in primary and secondary education,
teachers in higher education are discussing how the inspired work that
has marked the past decade will move forward. A golden era has seen
the Foundation influence an incalculable number of people, turning the
heads and changing the direction of many academic staff in higher education.
Teachers have been stimulated to enquire into their own teaching and
learning, and to integrate their own research into teaching and learning
in more innovative ways. Students have enjoyed the benefits of more
engaged and scholarly teachers.
