Even if a lecturer has progressed through Åkerlind’s (2007) hierarchy, Centra (1993) suggests that the greatest barrier to improvement is the individual’s inability to understand how to make significant changes. This is particularly pertinently when using more summative data which is even more limited in identifying relevant aspects and suggesting exactly how they could be developed.


Richardson (2005) states that the lack of discourse with peers, academic developers, or managers on how information should be interpreted limits scope for developmental discussion. In the absence of critical discourse or guided reflection there is little opportunity to identify improvements and subsequently design and implement changes to teaching.
