Kelly, Frances – History of Education, 2019

Shannon, William; Doidge, Mathew; Holland, Martin – European Journal of Higher Education, 2019
In this paper we examine the normative and strategic impact of the Bologna Process on the New Zealand University system. We argue that, from a normative perspective, Bologna has not resulted in substantive change. Nevertheless, a specific, if low-level, normative response has been evident, driven by perceived market incentives and the market-based…

Round, Ruth; McPhail, Graham – International Journal of Education & the Arts, 2019
Recent developments in the sociology of education highlight the importance of the school as a site for the transformation of students' everyday knowledge into a more ordered and systemised form that provides the means for the development of creative conceptual higher order thinking.

Standish, Katerina – Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education, 2019
In this perspective I endeavor to offer a transpersonal reflection of the work of decolonization from the standpoint of a minority-cisgender-female-White-settler-migrant. This work, the work of decolonization, is not the same for all of us, it depends on our place in the globe and our "baggage" as beings who inherit the past while living…

Collings, David A.; Gerrard, Juliet A.; Garrill, Ashley – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
While most studies concerning how Universities respond to crises are based on simulations, we describe how the University of Canterbury responded to a real crisis, a series of major seismic events that caused significant disruption in 2010/2011. We focus on a single, first-year undergraduate biology course in which we modified our teaching…

As long ago as 1992, Greville Rumble was writing about the "competitive vulnerabilities" of single-mode distance teaching institutions [universities].

Eley, Elizabeth; Berryman, Mere – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
The vision of New Zealand's Ministry of Education is to "lift aspiration, raise educational achievement for every New Zealander". However, our national statistics show us that this goal remains elusive for many students, particularly those who identify as Maori. In order to both raise the educational achievement of all students, and to…

Reynolds, Martyn – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
Education in an inter-cultural space is a feature of Aotearoa New Zealand: the education system is of European origin as are many in the teaching profession, while the student population is diverse.

Gadelha, Rene – Childhood Education, 2018
Virtual reality (VR) has the potential to revolutionize education, as it immerses students in their learning more than any other available medium. By blocking out visual and auditory distractions in the classroom, it has the potential to help students deeply connect with the material they are learning in a way that has never been possible before.…

Stewart, Georgina – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2018
The idea of the 'intercultural hyphen' is likened to a gap or bridge between ethnic groups, created from the ongoing intertwining of sociopolitical and intellectual histories. This 'gap or bridge' wording captures the paradoxical nature of the intercultural space, for which the 'hyphen' is a shorthand symbol or sign. There are options on either…

Students can, and often do,…
