An opinion questionnaire (see Appendix One for details) was distributed to staff of the Departments of Education Studies and English Studies to identify expectations of staff in relation to teaching practice and to measure the extent to which staff views on the subject coincide. Use was made of the Delphi technique to enable respondents to modify and expand on the original questionnaire and to revise their initial responses in the light of additional information. It was felt that the Delphi technique would permit more detailed and reflective views to be obtained from staff and that this additional information would justify the extra time required by the technique. Details of the technique and its contribution to the study are provided in a separate report on the Delphi technique.
