Bhatt, Ibrar; MacKenzie, Alison – Teaching in Higher Education, 2019
In this paper we examine digital literacy and explicate how it relates to the philosophical study of ignorance.

Hauke, Elizabeth – Teaching in Higher Education, 2019
This article argues that knowledge is not a passive product of learning that can be possessed, but rather that it represents an active engagement with ideas, arguments and the world in which they reside.

For Academic Literacies, the world is textually mediated; written texts and what informs them reveal elements such as subject-discipline practices. Furthermore, multi-modalities, for example, visual representation, inform written text, and multiple methods of inquiry, including interviews, shed light on written text production. In this article we…

Although the concept of a scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL) has emanated from the global North, it is a relevant and useful concept in the global South.

Because of the promising consequences of SRL for academic performance, teacher educators (TEs) are encouraged to increase TCs' SRL opportunities in educational programs.

Huang, Yi-Ping – Teaching in Higher Education, 2018
The internationalization of higher education has resulted in the growth of English-medium instruction (EMI) practices and research. The existing EMI research has documented learners' favorable attitudes toward EMI but not necessarily its practices. Learners' dissatisfaction has not been viewed as a form of resistance. Through the notion of learner…

In a…
