In her keynote Sue Clegg will argue that we need to ask critical questions about how we think about higher education. We need to debate how we, as practitioners, respond to the changing expectations of students, and government reshaping of the purposes of higher education. Critical research can destabilise common sense assumptions enabling us to pose more theoretically-informed questions. If we are to engage in debates about routine pedagogical practices and how we might attend to the student ‘voice’ we need more sophisticated ways of understanding the relationship between theory and practice.
