Example text

You can even move back and forth between these two states over time. You can create the personal space necessary for good, creative work. At the same time, you can create space for your home life when and where you need it – for instance, you might need a period of gentle paddling along with your career because you have to care for a sick parent. • As we said earlier, your sense of recognition is more likely to come from your peer epistemic community than from pleasing your ‘managers’. This gives you significant control over the definition of your own criteria for success, making it easier, when you decide that you want to move on in career terms, to get the kind of profile that you need for that new job.

First, it may be that the knowledge you want to produce and disseminate does not fit neatly into narrowly profitable objectives. Second, even where what you want to do is ‘useful’ to people in the outside world, they often don’t want to pay for your work. After all, they have already paid their taxes and why should they pay again for your labour? If you are a full-time employee of a university, then it will have to pay for your labour whether you are doing consultancy work or not. This means that the marginal cost to the university of your time being spent on consultancy or professional practice is confined to any cost associated with replacing your teaching.

Our own feeling is that the student/consumer is not empowered by this process and that the best teaching and learning come when the relationship is based on mutual respect and trust rather than evaluations of ‘value for money’ and ‘service quality’. This recasting of pedagogy as a straightforward commercial exchange (fees for knowledge) fails to recognise the importance of challenging students, making them work hard and the transformative effects of good education. If the ‘customer is always right’, and what the student/customer wants is merely to pass exams, then they will not learn much of value, but only how to pass exams.
