Abstract

To different extents, academic development units (ADUs) face common problems the world over. Often situated in an institutional environment which values research over teaching, they can find it difficult to integrate their work into that of the university community generally. For them, policy imperatives such as the Bologna accord present both challenges and opportunities. Thus perhaps the most fascinating aspect of these papers is the insight they provide into the nature of the relationships between ADUs and their university contexts.
