There are multiple representations of academic practice; differences in interpretation, understanding and delivery between higher education institutions nationally and between nations and cultures internationally. However, globally, there are commonalities, shared notions of what makes academic practice distinct and how good academic practice might be explored and defined.

The SRHE Academic Practice Network seeks to reflect on the (re)negotiations and enactments of values, identities and epistemologies that is higher education, particularly the responses to the dilemmas that current broader cultural and political patterns call forth – responses that make HE what it is at any given point in time and place.

This network welcomes all participants in HE in any role, whether student, teacher, researcher, manager (etc) in its enquiry into practice and its demanding environments, especially an awareness of what informs, legitimises and contests judgment and action.

Academic practice is not ‘owned’ by any one group or discipline and this SRHE Network especially aims to connect with HE practitioners and researchers who have — successfully or unsuccessfully — crossed fields or contexts, are interested in HE as a distinctive semi-fluid institution (or culture) and have a range of critically analysable perspectives to offer.

We aspire to broaden the traditional academic practice community and vocabulary, to extend the existing recognisable ‘academic practice’ world to new and different communities, priorities and trajectories.
