Abstract:

To different extents, academic development units (ADUs) face common problems the world over. Often situated in an institutional environment which values research over teaching, they can find it difficult to integrate their work into that of the university community generally. For them, policy imperatives such as the Bologna accord present both challenges and opportunities. Thus perhaps the most fascinating aspect of these papers is the insight they provide into the nature of the relationships between ADUs and their university contexts. De par le monde, les centres de développement académique (CDA) sont confrontés à des problèmes communs d'envergures différentes. Souvent situés dans un environnement qui privilégie la recherche plutôt que l'enseignement, les CDA éprouvent certaines difficultés à intégrer leur travail dans celui de la communauté universitaire en général. Pour les CDA, les impératifs politiques découlant de l'accord de Bologne présentent aussi bien des défis que des opportunités. Ces articles sont particulièrement fascinants en raison de leur éclairage au sujet de la nature des relations entre les CDA et le contexte universitaire.
