Daniel Tröhler; Sophie Winkler – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2024
Our guiding thesis in this article is that the recent burgeoning discussion of differentiation in the context of education has to do with critiques of the globalization theories that have been popular since 1990.

Jarrett B. Warshaw; Matt DeMonbrun; Jon McNaughtan – Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, 2024
U.S. public master's institutions (PMIs) face conflicting imperatives to strive for prestige while democratizing college access for racially minoritized students.

In this article, we explore how inclusion and diversity in mindful dance and movement practices can be supported by a practice of self-reflexivity in regards to our embodied identities as teachers.

Lenzner, Timo; Höhne, Jan Karem – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2022
Previous research has shown that question characteristics, such as the shape of rating scales, can affect how respondents interpret and respond to questions.
