First published in 1996, this book charts the philosophical landscape of staff development at a time when the subject of 'quality' in university teaching and learning was under examination. Graham Webb considers three main issues in his research. He focuses on what the basis for educational and staff development actually is and looks at the weaknesses of the then current practices, as well as deliberating over the future of informed staff development.

This book will be of interest to staff developers of all kinds and more generally, to anyone concerned with education and human development.
