Local projects and cross-institution development of learning and teaching
This article focuses on the potential for local projects or initiatives to have cross-institution impact. With an increasing emphasis on sharing good practice across institutions and across the sector, there is often an expectation that local projects will make a contribution outside the local context. I explore some of the issues in using local projects for this purpose, including: the nature of project outcomes; the effect of local context on the development of a project; and how we view dissemination and impact. My intention is to raise questions concerning how we think about cross-institution impact, and offer some suggestions on ways forward.
