McPhail, Graham; Lourie, Megan – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2017
In this paper we outline a case for including realism as an approach for carrying out research in education. Realism is often missing or under-represented in methodology text books which tend to misrepresent positivism and over-claim the epistemic authority possible for interpretivism. While interpretivism is arguably the dominant research…

Kidman, Joanna; Chu, Cherie – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2017
Over the past 15 years of tertiary sector reform, the nature of academic governance in New Zealand universities has radically changed.

We explored opportunities, advantages and barriers to enabling students to establish student-led learning events at a New Zealand university. We used an action-research approach to explore if students felt empowered to use the infrastructure of this university to realise something that they themselves set out to achieve. We discovered that, in…

Smardon, Dianne; Charteris, Jennifer – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2017
The political schooling emphasis on fixed fiscal input and improved student outcomes constitutes a significant challenge for practitioners who are held accountable for the quality of education provision. Professional learning and development (PLD) is a key policy lever for shifting practice in schools and driving philosophical change. In recent…

The Productivity Commission's work on 'new models of tertiary education' houses the latest iteration of a discourse around 'transferable skills' at tertiary level that has deep implications for how we conceive of the purpose and value of tertiary education. Skills are increasingly located at the centre of conceptions of graduate outcomes, rather…

In 1996 the New Zealand government announced the aim of achieving a "world class inclusive education system" in its new policy, Special Education 2000 (SE2000).
