Are Students' Voices Genuine?
Higher Education Review, v40 n2 p24-30 Spr 2008
Recent studies have used students' "voices" to support their claims about the value or otherwise of new technology, university courses and universities as a whole. But such voices are not obtained neutrally: students know there is an agenda here. This article questions whether it is possible to obtain more genuine student voices and whether it is ethical to do so.
