Szpakowski, Michael – International Journal of Art & Design Education, 2019
I comment upon the recent blossoming of writing on art, knowledge and research and connect this to its material roots in the changing nature of higher education. I find much of this writing wanting in that it implies a division of art into 'knowledge-producing' and 'non knowledge-producing' art. I examine how art objects might be said to generate…

Dumitru, Adelin – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
In this paper, I argue that universities ought to account for the diverse conceptions of the good employed by their students.

Idris, Aida; Ion, Georgeta; Seery, Aidan – Irish Educational Studies, 2019
Some of the main concerns in international higher education are the feeling of isolation among international students and their inability to adapt to the host environment, which may result in sub-optimal academic performance.

Newton, Genevieve; Poung, Kim; Laila, Amar; Bye, Zoe; Bettger, William; Cottenie, Karl; Dawson, John; Graether, Steffen P.; Jacobs, Shoshanah; Murrant, Coral; Zettel, John – International Journal of Higher Education, 2019
Student evaluations of teaching (SETs) provide both summative and formative feedback. Although it is clear that SETs are used by administrators for summative purposes, such as providing data to support personnel decisions, it is uncertain how instructors use them for formative development such as to inform overall teaching practice. The objective…
