In relation to the second set of questions about how the teaching– learning interaction is characterized in terms of the teaching–learning environment, it does not provide a sense of the dynamic and interactive aspects of teaching–learning processes. Rather, as I have outlined in Chapter 1, it tends to either focus on academics’ perceptions of teaching or students’ perceptions of learning. This gives little sense of the way in which academics and students continually impact on each other in particular interactions.

Equally, many studies have examined the differences between the organizational cultures in different universities (for example, de Zilwa 2007). As Välimaa (1998) and Yorke (2004) note, such research is more common in the US than in the UK and Europe, a difference that Yorke (2004) puts down to greater competition between institutions in the US. This research tends to focus on institutional cultures generally (for example, see Tierney 1988 for a classic framework of organizational cultures and Trowler 2008a for a review of different approaches) rather than how these cultures impact on teaching–learning processes, even if some research has considered how such cultures impact on the introduction of learning initiatives (see Kezar et al.

This is because my overarching focus is on students’ and academics’ projects, how they impact on each other and how they are shaped by sets of structural– agentic processes in teaching–learning interactions in higher education. If my focus was, for example, on how national higher education systems are shaped by structural–agentic processes, then it seems highly likely that structural descriptions of such processes would be more in the foreground than agentic descriptions. In this way my view of structural– Conceptualizing structure and agency 23 agentic processes is clearly related to my interest in teaching–learning interactions in higher education.
