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…

Karl Marx's revolutionary call, "Workers of the World Unite," resonates with many in today's society. This article describes and assesses an easily reproducible classroom activity that simulates both alienating, and perhaps more importantly, non-alienating states of production as described by Marx. This hands-on learning activity gives…

Newfield, Christopher – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2016
The large-scale massive open online course (xMOOC) rose to prominence in 2012-13 on the promise that its outcomes would be better and cheaper than those of face-to-face university instruction. By late 2013, xMOOC educational claims had been largely discredited, though policy interest in ed-tech carried on. What can we learn about the future of…

Peters, Michael A. – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2016
This special issue focused on "Digital Media and Contested Visions of Education" provides an opportunity to examine the tendency to hypothesise a rupture in the history of the university. It does so by contrasting the traditional Humboldtian ideals of the university with a neoliberal marketised version and in order to ask questions…

Denskus, Tobias; Esser, Daniel E. – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2015
We review the ontological and pedagogical origins of International Development graduate education in the context of increasing pressures to "professionalise" graduate curricula. We apply Giroux's concept of "vocationalisation" to argue that professionalisation risks undermining the field's intellectual foundations in an elusive…

Yamada, Naomi C. F. – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2015
In both China and in the United States, policies of "positive discrimination" were originally intended to lessen educational and economic inequalities, and to provide equal opportunities. As with affirmative action in the American context, China's "preferential policies" are broad-reaching, but are best known for taking ethnic…

These "problems"--classroom silence, segregation and…
