Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Chekhov's novella A Boring Story: From an old man's journal, provides a rich stimulus for reflecting upon the practice of teaching in higher education. The narrator's beliefs about academia, science and medicine alongside his tacit theories of learning and encounters with students and colleagues are reflected upon and speculated upon in light of contemporary teaching practice and pedagogic literature.
