We should see Weller’s book as a call to arms. *Instead of struggling on
with our inadequate technological infrastructure, plodding commercial
software packages, frustrating quality assurance forms and pointless
research frameworks, academics need to be a lot braver and rediscover what
it means to engage fully with pedagogy and research in higher
education. *What’s
more, we need to be more uncompromising, and start to develop our own
21st-century tools and ways of working. Now that would be worth getting out
of bed for.
