The following discussion around issues in learning and teaching is based on data collected during four focus groups with sociologists currently employed in a variety of ‘post 92’ universities in England. The participants were either employed within sociology departments or taught sociology to students studying degrees in different areas. The participants are coded with a letter to represent their focus group (A-D) and a number. While this is certainly not a representative sample there are a variety of interesting discussions and comments that help to inform a broad discussion about issues in learning and teaching. Any conclusions must be contextualised by the limited nature of the sample that is presented here. We have tried to reflect the main themes that reoccurred across the meetings. In order to capture some of the nuance and details of comments and ideas that the participants offered, extended quotes are often used. There are six overlapping sections that follow the format of the key questions that each focus group was asked to consider.
