  • What this change is? Between academics and support staff (as people work in multi-disciplinary teams, sharing areas of expertise); Amongst academics (as teaching practice shifts from individual practice to cross-institutional and inter- institutional collaboration); Between academics and students (as teachers and learners (who may not be registered with a university) interact in new ways); Between academics and organisations {including the university where they are employed} (as university activities open up).
