Velda McCune; Jenny Scoles; Sharon Boyd; Andy Cross; Pete Higgins; Rebekah Tauritz – Higher Education Research and Development, 2024
Policy makers increasingly call on higher education to prepare learners for challenges such as global health emergencies or ecological crises.

Lili Yang; Yusuf Ikbal Oldac; Jacob Oppong Nkansah – Higher Education Research and Development, 2024
Global science is more networked and connected than ever before. The rise of research collaborations occurs not only in the established Euro-American science systems that hold 'central' nodes in the globally networked science, but also in other parts of the world as science systems pluralise and multipolarise. Yet, research collaborations between…
