Abstract

The Higher Education environment in the UK is changing as a result of political uncertainty and financial tensions. The sector is grappling with cultural changes wherein students see themselves as consumers and Universities have to respond to demands and expectations by continuously improving the student experience whilst not diluting academic quality (PricewaterhouseCoopers, 2018). New ways of working, involving interdisciplinary pedagogic collaborations, offer an innovative way to create and sustain the performance necessary to meet demands while maintaining academic quality.

This discussion paper explores an inter-organisational partnership and resulting network within a high-ranking UK University. First, we will present an overview of the current climate and rationale for the need for new ways of creating high performance through inter-organisational pedagogic collaborations. Second, we will describe the resulting collaboration (Teach-Learn-Share) and the mechanism by which is seeks to facilitate new ways of developing and sharing knowledge about excellence in learning, teaching and assessment across Faculties of Management and Health. Finally, we will consider how these new types of initiatives can be sustained and further developed in order to effectively engage and develop colleagues interested in teaching and learning at every level within a collaborative network.
