We perform two approaches of machine learning, logistic regressions and decision trees, to predict student dropout at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The models are computed on the basis of examination data, i.e. data available at all universities without the need of specific collection. Therefore, we propose a methodical approach…

Conceição, Manuel Célio – European Journal of Higher Education, 2020
In the context of education for the global world, internationalization is a strategy and a goal of higher education (HE).

Gajo, Laurent; Berthoud, Anne-Claude – European Journal of Higher Education, 2020
This article sets out from the observation that internationalization and contextualization of scientific knowledge increasingly appear to be in conflict, raising the question of the part played by language in the construction, transmission and dissemination of such knowledge. We will start by emphasizing the importance of considering language not…

Brorsen Smidt, Thomas; Bondestam, Fredrik; Pétursdóttir, Gyða Margrét; Einarsdóttir, Þorgerður – European Journal of Higher Education, 2020
Neoliberalism has long found its way into higher education and made life hard for academics in a number of different ways. The literature that maps out resistance to this development focuses on the gendered aspects of labour-economic issues. However, this study argues that the zeitgeist of neoliberalism has gendered consequences far beyond…
