Gray, Gregory C.; Borkenhagen, Laura K.; Sung, Nancy S.; Tang, Shenglan – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2019
China now tops the list of countries with the largest annual number of scientific publications.

Chun, Marc – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2012
If educators want students to practice and prepare for challenges they might eventually face, there are a number of useful strategies to connect academic learning to the "real world."

Baldwin, Roger; DeZure, Deborah; Shaw, Allyn; Moretto, Kristin – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2008
Mid-career faculty comprise the largest component of the academic workforce. But what do people really know about them? What do they experience? What are their needs? In contrast to the large and growing body of empirical research on their early-career colleagues, the research on them is far from robust, offering relatively few suggestions for how…

Trautmann, Nancy M. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2008
The traditional presumption in higher education that subject-matter knowledge is sufficient for effective teaching is breaking down. One cause of this change is the growing knowledge about how people learn, a consequence of which is a heightened focus on student-centered teaching practices. Another is the increasing diversity of students seeking…
