dc.description.abstractThis chapter explores the nature of current higher education practices in the context of broader neoliberal conditions, and how these conditions can be challenged. Specifically, the chapter draws upon neo-Aristotelian theorizing to help make sense of these practices, and as an alternative to neoliberalism to guide educators’ work and learning . The project explores the value of these concepts through research into tertiary teaching practices in an Australian university. The chapter argues for a praxis-oriented approach to educational practice as a challenge to more neoliberal influences, and seeks to reveal how more neoliberal and praxis-oriented positions coexist in both policy and practice. The research reveals how the conditions for practice in the university, as evident in key policies for university teaching, act as ‘practice architectures’ for the practices which subsequently develop, and also provides insights into how these conditions might be better managed for more educative purposes.
