Wong, Billy; Chiu, Yuan-Li Tiffany – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
Research on the 'ideal' or 'good' student tends to be situated within compulsory schooling.

This narrative study investigated identity, agency and emotions, amongst an under-researched academic group -- those without PhDs with primary responsibility for teaching, who are also expected to do research. In this interview-based paper, we examine the experience of such Finnish academics in a research-intensive university. Thematic and then…

Cowan, John – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
This article traces and critically analyses a personal journey in search of effective ways to promote exemplary questioning on the part of students.
