Norton, Andrew – Higher Education Policy Institute, 2020
In 2012, Australia removed student number controls or, in the local terminology, introduced a 'demand driven system' based on student choice. In 2015, England followed suit. In both places, entry to higher education was opened up but non-completion rates rose. In Australia, the demand driven system ended in 2017, despite a coming demographic…

Norton, Anderson – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2019
Felix Klein's Erlangen program classifies geometries based on the kinds of geometric transformations that preserve key properties of their figures, rather than focusing on the geometric figures themselves. This shift in perspective, from figurative to operative, fits Piaget's characterization of mathematical development. This paper considers how…

Norton, Anderson – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2018
As mathematics educators, we teach and research a particular form of knowledge. However, in reacting to Platonic views of mathematics, we often overlook its unique characteristics. This paper presents a Kantian and Piagetian perspective that defines mathematics as a product of psychology. This perspective, based in human activity, unites…

Norton, Stephen – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2017
The importance of actively engaging in mathematics discourse in order to learn mathematics is well recognized. In this paper, I use Basil Bernstein's concepts of pedagogic discourse to document and analyse academic learning time of students in Years 8 and 9 at a suburban lower secondary school: in particular, for what proportion of class time…

Norton, Frances; Gregson, Margaret – Education Sciences, 2020
This article investigates Brown's assertion that students today exhibit an unwillingness/inability to engage in critical thinking (CT). He describes this as a 'critical thinking deficit'. The question of whether CT can be taught or whether we can only create the conditions in which CT can thrive and develop is explored through analysis of data…

Students are invited to work with their life stories in a safe, dialogical space and to deconstruct various forms of power and its influence on their lives. Using a mix of creative and embodied methodologies,…
