Thomas, Glyn; Thorpe, Stephen – Interactive Learning Environments, 2019
There still appears to be a gap between what online learning promises and what it can deliver in terms of student learning. Developments in online pedagogies and professional learning appear to lag behind the developments in technology and the promised benefits of technological transformation may not be realised. In this paper, we bring together…

Ayala, Ricardo A.; Koch, Tomas F.; Messing, Helga B. – Ethnography and Education, 2019
One of the most fundamental innovations in higher education is the introduction of the method known as problem-based learning (PBL). While literature has largely focused on its learning goals and the transition from lectures to tutorials, little research has problematised why this is a successful methodology and what we consider as students'…

Kelly, Frances – History of Education, 2019
The impetus for this article was an encounter with thousands of photographs in an online archive of a public university in New Zealand, taken over the twentieth century. The size of the archive and the paucity of information about many images draws attention to challenges of commencing work in a large institutional visual archive. The first part…

Evans, Ceryn; Rees, Gareth; Taylor, Chris; Wright, Caroline – Journal of Education Policy, 2019
Patterns of participation in higher education (HE) in the UK, as elsewhere, have been marked by social inequalities for decades. UK Governments have responded with a plethora of policies and agendas aimed at addressing this broad social issue. However, little is known about how higher education institutions (HEIs) interpret and 'enact' these…

Manarin, Karen – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
Why read? What is the point of reading in higher education if students can succeed in their classes without reading? Using Wigfield and Eccles' Expectancy-Value theory of motivation as a framework, I explore why different instructors think their students should be reading and whether students share these motivations. Instructors and students…

Aldridge, David – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
This article explores the close association between higher education and reading. I draw on the resources of literary studies to illuminate the phenomenon of educational 'engagement'. I explore the accounts of reading offered in the phenomenological literary theory of Rita Felski and Marielle Macé and extend their 'stylistics of existence' into…

Baker, Sally; Bangeni, Bongi; Burke, Rachel; Hunma, Aditi – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
While the importance of academic language and literacies in students' meaningful participation in higher education has been well-explored, studies have focused on writing rather than reading. There has been a significant silence in the literature around what constitutes reading in higher education, the sociocultural complexities of reader…

Hosier, Maeve; Hoolash, Bheshaj Kumar Ashley – Studies in Higher Education, 2019
This paper explores the effect of methodological choice on global Higher Education Institutions' (HEI) rankings, and the effect of choices regarding League Table and Ranking Systems (LTRSs) upon decision-making and policy. LTRSs are identified as heuristics to aid decision-making about HEIs. The paper examines the methodological choices commonly…

Lee, Nicolette; Loton, Daniel – Studies in Higher Education, 2019
Capstones, as culminating educational experiences, are expected to meet many purposes: synthesis and application of prior learning, developing skills and attributes related to employability, and more recently, quality assurance. However, research has not yet identified a comprehensive list of capstone purposes or considered how multiple purposes…

Wilkinson, Clare – Studies in Higher Education, 2019
The principle that research should demonstrate impact is now a central driver in UK research policy, with some describing the UK as having undergone a 'culture change' in regards to evidencing the value and contribution of academic research (Watermeyer, R. 2012. "From Engagement to Impact? Articulating the Public Value of Academic…

Davies, Chantal; Healey, Ruth – Studies in Higher Education, 2019
In spite of a number of drivers for change in the pursuit of gender equality in higher education in the UK and beyond, the gender gap in research activity is still widely recognised across most subject disciplines. Over recent years, mentoring strategies have often been seen as the Alexandrian sword capable of cutting the gender deficit 'Gordian…

Tiainen, Tarja; Berki, Eleni – Studies in Higher Education, 2019
Women's under-representation in the fields of science and technology is strong; both in software houses and academic posts. We focus on the academic field by gender sensitive analysis of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) academics. The general picture given by statistics' meta-analyses illustrates male dominance even in Finland, which…
