We are interested in elaborating how university teachers create and maintain their understanding of teaching and learning. To this respect the social context in which they act out their understanding seems to be important. In the literature there are examples of how stable teaching cultures appear, - . Some authors even label university teachers as conservative . The issue here is not whether or not the teachers are conservative. Instead we would like to explore how university teachers socially develop and maintain their understanding of teaching and learning. This is done by using some theoretical perspectives together with observations. The overall purpose is to obtain a deepened understanding in order to develop strategies for more efficient academic development, and – in the long run – better student learning.
