This website has been set up by Jonathan Newman (University of Sussex) as part of a C-SAP funded project to look into the the impact of economic constraints on the teaching of anthropology and how strategies are employed to negotiate this situation.

C-SAP is funded by the UK Funding Councils for Higher Education to promote a scholarly and disciplinary-specific approach to the innovation and reform of learning and teaching in the social sciences.


It is independent of other websites or social networks provided by ning.com or other companies. Although it is linked in with other sites (including those with the ning.com name), the use of this temporary site does not require membership in any other place.

Purpose of this Project

Reflexive pedagogical practice

INITIAL FEEDBACK FROM 10 UNIVERSITIES NOW AVAILABLE!! - CLICK THIS.

This project aims to support departments and teachers as they develop pedagogical strategies within financial constraints.

Investigation into how we negotiate and manage the influence of economic demands on teaching programmes enables us to consider how best to respond to the educational market and how, in this environment, we can improve departmental and teaching performance.


Getting Started

This website has been updated in March 2010 to reflect the input of participants' emails and conversations.

An anonimised detailed summary of this is now available, whilst in the forum there are responses and debates about the issues raised. Your input and discussion on these matters is very much welcomed.

If people want to contribute anonymously this is also possible. To do this, sign-up to Ning using an alias. I realise that this is slightly controversial but it appears that this is a sensitive issue where anonymity is sometimes preferred. Nevertheless there are legal considerations so please remember that potential libel, slander, obscenity and related problematic conduct will not be tolerated.

Ning gets hit by people joining as part of spam related activity, if you are going to use an alias please use something with an academic reference in it and post something constructive on the forum immediately, or you will join the long list banned members.
