Transition and tensions: getting a project off the ground

Dave Burnapp

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticle


This paper describes the steps which have been taken to initiate a project under the National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS) at the University of Northampton, concerning international collaborations in higher education. This particular project was launched three months ago so as yet has no findings to report; however, the
project initiation processes described here might themselves be informative. This paper is mostly a reflective account concerning personal and professional development and therefore uses an interpretative approach. This is a narrative, albeit a narrative that is as yet incomplete, hence it cannot have the usual narrative structure of orientation, complication, resolution and evaluation, and instead will be structured by describing a series of completed transitions
complications that have been resolved) and a series of tensions (complications as yet unresolved). As is suitable for a reflective account, the remainder of this paper
will be written in a subjective style.
