Douglas, Kate – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
University educators have observed the concurrent problems of student attrition, higher than normal or desired failure rates and students struggling to complete assessable and non-assessable work, for instance, set readings. Recent public commentary has pointed to the widening participation agenda with its lowering of university entrance scores…

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…

Dakka, Fadia; Wade, Alex – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
Where and when do academics write and what are the feelings associated with it? Is the pressure to write a fulfilling process of joyful exploration, or is it stressful and wracked with self-doubt? Inspired by Henri Lefebvre's Rhythmanalysis, this article explores the rhythmic dispositions and orientations of contemporary academic writing, exposing…

This article presents the authors' successful experiences with Cirrus, a purpose-built Digital Humanities teaching and learning platform developed at The University of Queensland between 2016 and 2018.

Römhild, Juliane – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
In "Uses of Literature" (2008), Rita Felski outlines four ways in which our affective responses to literature can serve as a starting point for a new form of literary criticism drawing on reader response and ethical criticism. This article situates Felski's approach in the context of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) on…

Saito, Eisuke; Pham, Thanh – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
Employability has become a key concept that has attracted the attention of scholars and industries in many countries. At the same time, this concept is highly fluid and vague because its nature is not evidenced by real employment and differences in the nature of labour markets from country to country. Thus, it would be more worthwhile to discuss…

Matthews, Kelly E.; Cook-Sather, Alison; Acai, Anita; Dvorakova, Sam Lucie; Felten, Peter; Marquis, Elizabeth; Mercer-Mapstone, Lucy – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
A body of literature on students as partners (SaP) in higher education has emerged over the last decade that documents, shares, and evaluates SaP approaches. As is typical in emerging fields of inquiry, scholars differ regarding how they see the relationship between the developments in SaP practices and the theoretical explanations that guide,…

Joughin, Gordon; Boud, David; Dawson, Phillip – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
Students' capacity for making evaluative judgements of their own work is widely acknowledged as central to their learning within programmes as well as being vital to their subsequent professional practice. In higher education literature, the act of evaluative judgement is usually portrayed as a process of deliberative, analytical reasoning…

Idahosa, Grace Ese-osa; Vincent, Louise – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
Scholars writing on agency argue that normally, individuals who experience social structures as comfortable will tend to want to reproduce them while those who experience these structures as oppressive will want to change them. This is a bleak outlook because it suggests that those in positions of power and influence are less likely to seek to…

Zepke, Nick – Higher Education Research and Development, 2018
Quality teaching is increasingly prioritized in higher education. One reason is that government funding requires students to succeed in their studies and be ready for employment. In response, educators throughout the Western world have generated large quantities of evidence-based, practical, often uncritical research about what works to improve…

Rattray, Julie – Higher Education Research and Development, 2018
In this article, I consider how the neoliberal discourses surrounding higher education have resulted in an increasingly risk-averse culture of learning and teaching. Students are frequently reluctant to engage with troublesome or challenging knowledge and academics are less likely to push learners into contested spaces or deviate from accepted…

Literat, Ioana; Conover, Anna; Herbert-Wasson, Elizabeth; Kirsch Page, Karen; Riina-Ferrie, Joseph; Stephens, Rachael; Thanapornsangsuth, Sawaros; Vasudevan, Lalitha – Higher Education Research and Development, 2018
In this article, we suggest that we are witnessing a challenge to the hegemony of text-based knowledge in academic scholarship, brought about by newly available modes of expression, and a cultural shift in our notions of reading and writing, authorship, and networked knowledge production. The central question we address here concerns the…
