The intended focus of this research is to explore the relationship between the teaching approach of a postgraduate module and the development of a critical pedagogy. The paper reports on the views of three academics reflecting on the development of a new module, two years into delivery. The focus of the paper is on the impact of using an alternative delivery model to attempt to generate a more transformational learning environment while developing students’ approach to scholarship, research and writing. Key findings point to the notion of shock for both students and staff. In particular students found the change in teaching techniques to be a challenge. However, the anecdotal evidence seemed to suggest improved engagement culminating in improved results. The article therefore offers an opportunity for fellow academics to consider their approach to teaching and learning and whether such an adaptation would work for them, in their setting.
