Abstract

My work seeks to address the contribution of SD to enhancement of quality in HE. I have sought to explore a cluster of research questions in this area, the focus varying slightly over time as my roles have changed and developed, opening and closing opportunities for investigative work. The primary research questions have been: how may SD contribute to enhancing HE and what are the implications of those contributions for HE staff, HEIs, and the SD community itself? How are HE organisations and management changing and how may staff and SD professionals
engage with and influence such changes? At the next level down, I have developed associated, more particular questions, for specific projects. Examples include: What
are the prospects for successful re-alignment of enhancement bodies, including the main one for SD? What strategies have been developed to enhance the contribution
of PTT? Are they well founded and influential? How far do they meet the needs of stakeholders, including PTT themselves?
