Palfreyman, David – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2012
The author argues that a Higher Education Bill will be lacking in the future, as promised in the 2011 White Paper on HE; and hence the regulatory framework for English HE will, for the immediate future at least, have to evolve within the law as it is rather than via new legal powers. The essential issue is how to extract the benefits of market…

James and Pollard appropriately insist that the articulation of general, "evidence-informed" pedagogical "principles" that can inform teacher judgments and policy-makers rather than detailed instructional "prescriptions" that tell teachers what to do is the most useful way to improve classroom practice at scale. This…

Chitty, Clyde – Educational Review, 2010
The term "political activity" can be interpreted in a myriad of different ways, but in this paper, it is taken to mean involvement in a variety of campaigns around issues affecting the way we live and the sort of society we want to live in.
