Using an interpretive epistemology Anne's research aims to develop understanding of the ways in which academic staff, working in Higher Education in England, are responding to the unprecedented policy changes defining the sector. This research is based on the premise that changes in national government and subsequent legislative changes have provoked individual reactions from academic staff, and it is managing this array of individual responses which poses a significant challenge to corporate management.
The research aims to identify some of the responses and determine what, if any, patterns can be identified. This information may well provide some answers to the challenges currently facing management, or provide information regarding positive responses to change on an individual basis. The research is timely in that recent changes in government and legislation have led to unprecedented change within the Higher Education sector, and research into the impact of these changes on practitioner bases is limited.
