After analysing the organisational pathologies and societal ills created by the neoliberalisation of universities, the article engages in an organisational critique of the pseudo-business model currently in use.

Thompsett, Fern – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2017
Free universities are diverse but loosely networked projects that resist repressive capitalist and state configurations of power by re-imagining teaching, learning and research on their own terms, often through radical and ongoing experimentation.

In this article, we discuss how adding a final film project to a revised "Culture through Film" course led to deeper student learning and higher rates of student success, as well as increased student satisfaction. Ultimately, we urge social science educators to include experiential projects in their courses that connect to all learning…

Doerr, Neriko Musha – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2017
Though the concept "global learner" has become a buzzword in education, few have critically analysed it. This article examines three types of "unlikely global learners" who are not usually considered global learners even though they could be, according to a current definition: Maori- English bilingual students in Aotearoa/New…

Baker, Sally; Stirling, Eve – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2016
As technological developments accelerate, and neoliberal ideologies shift the ways that universities "do business," higher education is facing radical changes. Within this context, students' need to 'succeed' at university is more important than ever. Consequently, understanding students' transitions within this shifting higher education…

Shumar, Wesley – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2016
This article focuses on the ways that modern American universities are engaged in the process of articulating new producing and consuming subjects. It argues that the image of the engaged "media celebrity" intellectual, as presented in the TED Talk model, has become a cultural ideal that reconciles a deeper contradiction in the academy.…

Dodge, Jennifer; Holtzman, Richard; van Hulst, Merlijn; Yanow, Dvora – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2016
The "interpretive turn" has gained traction as a research approach in recent decades in the empirical social sciences. While the contributions of interpretive research and interpretive research methods are clear, we wonder: Does an interpretive perspective lend itself to--or even demand--a particular style of teaching? This question was…

Ayres, R. Williams – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2016
Much of our teaching about conflict relies on theoretical ideas and models that are delivered as finished products. This article explores the supposition that what students need is not already-formed theoretical ideas, but exposure to more real-world cases of conflict from which to build theory. The article presents an experiment in pedagogy:…

Bennett, Cary – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2016
Assessment rubrics are being promoted and introduced into tertiary teaching practices on the grounds that they are an efficient and reliable tool to evaluate student performance effectively and promote student learning. However, there has been little discussion on the value of using assessment rubrics in higher education. Rather, they are being…
