Santos, Jose Leonardo – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2020

Sarauw, Laura Louise; Madsen, Simon Ryberg – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2020
Studies often highlight how standardisation and consent are manufactured through the European Bologna Process (Brøgger 2019; Gibbs et al. 2014; Lawn and Grek 2012). This article shows how students' conduct is still governed by multiple logics and dilemmas. The context for the article is the Bologna Process and the way it has been applied by the…

Aarnikoivu, Melina; Pennanen, Matti; Kiili, Johanna; Nokkala, Terhi – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2020
This article discusses the potential of multidisciplinary peer-mentoring groups to facilitate individual and institutional change. To do this, we view peer mentoring as a form of "critical education praxis" (Mahon et al. 2019), the purpose of which is to create a space for reflexive thinking and asking critical questions. The data were…
