Timmons, Stephen; Edgley, Alison; Meal, Andy; Narayanasamy, Aru – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2016
Nursing as an academic discipline typically draws on a wide range of other disciplines.

The primary goal of this mixed-method study is to unpack how 114 academics in an AD…

Forming the second of two articles, this dialogue revisits and explores the educational value of physical education as a means to stimulate further discussion about what physical education is, or as Kirk states within this interview, what do "we want physical education to be". Although the theme of the second interview relates to the…

Duffy, Katherine; Ney, Jillian – Journal of Marketing Education, 2015
Digital technologies pervade the higher education landscape as a way to build student engagement and enhance student learning and teaching. In practice, however, the ways in which these tools are implemented in marketing education appear to be ad hoc, rather than using a systematic approach to build engagement and provide students with the skill…

Three-dimensional (3D) virtual worlds have been used for more than a decade in higher education for teaching and learning. Since the 1980s, academics began using virtual worlds as an exciting and innovative new technology to provide their students with new learning experiences that were difficult to provide any other way. But since that time,…

Scott Jones, Julie; Goldring, John E. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2015
Initiatives, like the UK ESRC's RDI/CI programmes and the Q-Step Centres, have a long-term aim of addressing the well-documented decline in the pool of academics able and willing to teach quantitative methods (QM). However, these initiatives will take time to make an impact; therefore, the upskilling of current staff is a vital strategy if we want…
