When two cultures collide: Similarities and differences between tertiary teachers in two institutional contexts

This research note reports on the findings of a small-scale exploratory study which was designed to investigate the views of academic work held by two groups of New Zealand tertiary teachers: one employed at a college of education, the other at a university.

The study is work-in-progress; however, it points to some interesting issues for further investigation – in particular, the differences between the two groups' understandings of themselves in relation to teaching, their "discipline" (or "knowledge base") and research, and their understandings of the relationship between research and teaching.
