"Towards Teaching in Public: Reshaping the Modern University" explores how the contested relationships between policy, curriculum and pedagogy are reshaping the modern university and examines the impact of conceptualisations of teaching in public on this debate in this age of academic capitalism. It traces the emergence of strategies for open access, with particular reference to the contribution of technology and e-learning, to the emergence of teaching in public as a critique of current educational policy. The contributors combine policy analysis with a consideration of pedagogical issues and an exploration of the student experience. This collection draws together chapters by experienced scholars and practitioners within the field of teaching and learning in higher education. It explores the concept of teaching in public, a debate seeking to defend the university as a publicly funded institution, based on progressive public values.
