Reasons to be different: a ‘post-1992’ perspective

Peter Jones

Abstract


At a time when British higher education’s relevance and value for money are increasingly being questioned, I argue that post-1992 universities should resist the temptation to emulate their ‘elite’ counterparts; and suggest some reasons why, and ways in which, they might do things differently. My analysis derives from experience of teaching social sciences (especially sociology) in a post-1992 institution, but may have wider validity.
