Inoue, Naoko; Anderson, Vivienne – Higher Education Research and Development, 2023
'Internationalisation' in Japanese higher education (HE) is largely imagined in terms of English language acquisition. Native speakers of English are therefore desirable HE employees. However, 'native-speakerism' also reflects hierarchical notions of English language forms. In Japan, US and Anglo forms of English are privileged over others, which…

Xu, Xing; Peng, Jing; Xia, Yunni; Zhang, Rui – Higher Education Research and Development, 2023
Despite an extensive body of literature scrutinising international students' short-term and long-term mobility experiences, little is known about the connection between the two. To address this gap, this study looks into the perception of a group of Chinese international students on how participation in their short-term mobility (STM) experience…

Kim, Sugene – Higher Education Research and Development, 2023
This study explores Japanese students' perceptions of and experiences with peer review in English writing classes. While the benefits of peer review for second language (L2) students are generally acknowledged, some studies have claimed that students from Asian cultures are predisposed to not benefit fully from this process because they tend to…

Mason, Shannon; Merga, Margaret – Higher Education Research and Development, 2022
There is an increasing expectation that early career researchers (ECRs) be active in communicating their research to diverse audiences both within and beyond academia. However, with limited time and an academic environment that disproportionately values certain research outputs over others, ECRs may struggle to build their expertise and confidence…

Saito, Eisuke; Pham, Thanh – Higher Education Research and Development, 2021
The notion of employability has become a focal point of higher education in many countries' strategies to prepare students for employment. Responses to this notion can differ largely from country to country and from university to university, based on their historical, political, and economic contexts. However, very little has been researched in…

Merga, Margaret; Mason, Shannon – Higher Education Research and Development, 2021
Contemporary early career researchers (ECRs) must share their research findings with both academic and non-academic audiences in order to advance their careers. With university organisational factors potentially both demanding and inhibiting ECR research dissemination, more needs to be known about ECRs' perceptions and experiences of the benefits…

Tran, Ly Thi; Stafford, Glen; Soejatminah, Sri; Gribble, Cate – Higher Education Research and Development, 2021
Student mobility from countries in the Anglosphere to the Indo-Pacific has recently become a significant and growing phenomenon. While there has been a large body of literature on international Asian students' motivations to undertake overseas study, much less has been known about the desires students from English-speaking countries such as…

In this short invitational essay, I discuss how a series of accidental incidents during the pandemic facilitated my reflection on the implications of COVID-19 for teaching and learning at universities. It recognizes the global health crisis as a catalytic moment to rethink the 'business as usual' of university education and develop renewed…

Okuda, Tomoyo – Higher Education Research and Development, 2020
One of the institutional challenges of taking in large numbers of international graduate students is supporting their academic literacy skills. To accommodate a large population of international students, Japanese universities offer various services to support their academic studies and life-related issues, such as hiring international student…

Saito, Eisuke; Pham, Thanh – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
Employability has become a key concept that has attracted the attention of scholars and industries in many countries. At the same time, this concept is highly fluid and vague because its nature is not evidenced by real employment and differences in the nature of labour markets from country to country. Thus, it would be more worthwhile to discuss…

Allen, Todd James – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
Writing groups have been implemented in higher education institutions in the US, UK and Australia as a means of supporting a writer's productivity (e.g., journal articles or book chapters) as well as developing their soft academic skills (e.g., collegiality). However, writing groups are seldom discussed in the Japanese context. Therefore, this…

Hou, Yung-Chi; Ince, Martin; Tsai, Sandy; Wang, Wayne; Hung, Vicky; Lin Jiang, Chung; Chen, Karen Hui-Jung – Higher Education Research and Development, 2016
Joint degree programs have gained popularity in East Asia, due to the growth of transnational higher education in the region since 2000. However, the external quality assurance (QA) and accreditation of joint degree programs is a challenge for QA agencies, as it normally involves the engagement of several institutions and multiple national…

International students have continued to be the focus of simplistic stereotyping in media discourse where they are frequently identified as one of the forces behind declining academic standards in Australian universities. Their English language skills, in particular, have continued to be the focus of debate both in the mainstream media and in…
