Brigham, Susan M.; Baillie Abidi, Catherine; Zhang, Yuhui – International Journal of Lifelong Education, 2018

Livingstone, D. W. – International Journal of Lifelong Education, 2018
The basic argument of this paper is that, in the wake of austerity measures against public education accumulating since the early 1980s, professional teachers at all levels may have been losing control of their jobs and faced decreasing opportunities for continuing their own learning. Empirical evidence is drawn mainly from a unique time series of…

My strategy demonstrates how art galleries and museums can function as sites for community…

These sites can illuminate the strength of women as they encounter/ed individual and societal…
