Morley, Louise; Leyton, Daniel; Hada, Yumiko – Policy Reviews in Higher Education, 2019

Temple, Paul – Policy Reviews in Higher Education, 2018
The possible connections between the physical form of a higher education institution and its effectiveness as a site for teaching, learning, scholarship and research have only become explicit, to some extent, from the mid-twentieth century.
