Abstract

University teachers are as complex and diverse as their students; they are not an homogeneous group, nor do they wish to become one. The question is does this matter and if so, might such ‘teacher differences’ affect learning?

The work aims to shed light on teaching, careers, self-actualisation and socialisation for teacher and student, considers what it means to be an HE teacher with a non-traditional background and shows implications this has for learning. It focuses on Legal Practice Course (LPC) teachers - the LPC is a postgraduate, vocational HE course for solicitors.
