This paper considers some of the challenges to developing a more critical approach to pedagogy in higher education. It looks at teaching and learning through the lens of the UK subject centre for education (ESCalate) and explores higher education pedagogy in terms of cultivating critical, scholarly and research-informed approaches to the development of knowledge, skills and understanding. The paper acknowledges the increasing use of psychoanalytic paradigms to critique education (Britzman 2003, 2009; Brown 2008, 2009; Cho 2009; Todd 2001, 2003; Youell 2006) and argues for the use of a psychoanalytic perspective for exploring the challenges for those who seek to develop and sustain learning cultures for the benefit of students and staff.
