Vlachopoulos, Dimitrios; Makri, Agoritsa – International Review of Education, 2019
Distance education requires an instructional design approach that can lead to educational transformation. This is characterised by advanced flexibility, learner autonomy and extensive use of digital technologies to enhance learning outcomes.

Mataira, Peter J. – International Review of Education, 2019
Ongoing colonial power has long been ascribed to government bureaucracy and institutions of higher learning. By consequence, Indigenous communities today are still experiencing challenges regarding the function, foundation and fabric of research that impacts Indigenous peoples, including in the arena of social work education. Writing as an…

Crazy Bull, Cheryl; White Hat, Emily R. – International Review of Education, 2019
Indigenous education and philosophy are rooted in the concept of "relationality" -- the relatedness of all things -- within the framework of place-based experiences and knowledge. This article focuses on tribal colleges and universities (TCUs) in the United States -- in particular, on their dedication to land use and preservation,…

Brock-Utne, Birgit – International Review of Education, 2018
This article has its basis in the author's own growing annoyance at so-called "sandwich" programmes, where young academics from developing countries study and learn theories at universities in the Global North, then go to their own countries for fieldwork -- only to return to the host country to fit their data into the theories of the…

Halvorsen, Torill Aagot – International Review of Education, 2018
A white person from the Global North, referred to in Kiswahili as a mzungu, can hardly conduct research anonymously, observe unnoticed or merge with staff and students in the context of African university classrooms. This article builds on the author's six years of research at the University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM) in Tanzania, examining staff and…

Firat, Mehmet – International Review of Education, 2017
In the past, distance education was used as a method to meet the educational needs of citizens with limited options to attend an institution of higher education. Nowadays, it has become irreplaceable in higher education thanks to developments in instructional technology. But the question of why students choose distance education is still…

Khasanzyanova, Albina – International Review of Education, 2017
It is widely recognised that tertiary education does not provide all of the knowledge and skills required to succeed in modern societies. Personal and interpersonal skills--so-called "soft skills"--are also needed to complement professional skills and expertise, and become an essential part of an individual's personality. One way of…

Machart, Régis – International Review of Education, 2017
The large range of jobs that Malaysian undergraduates of foreign languages are often employed in after completion of their studies (education, tourism, banking, business, management, etc.) is not necessarily related to their major field of study. This situation often makes it difficult for lecturers to develop a comprehensive professional training…

ter Avest, Ina – International Review of Education, 2017
To prepare Dutch students in education for critical situations in their professional life as a teacher, part of their training is to ask them to reflect upon their own experiences in their life as a child, a pupil and a student -- experiences of crucial moments or with significant others which are still of the utmost importance to them. This…

Gill, Scherto – International Review of Education, 2016
Internationalisation of Higher Education coupled with students' mobility across the globe in the 21st century has led to universities in many countries having to deal with an unprecedented flow of human diversity. Such diversity can become a potential source of conflict due to increased "otherness", but at the same time, it also presents…

Piper, Benjamin – International Review of Education, 2016
"Ubuntu" is an African philosophy of human kindness; applying it in the Global South would fundamentally alter the design of the education sector. This essay argues, however, that the field of international educational development is not, in fact, structured to support an education influenced by "ubuntu" ideals. Specifically,…

Peercy, Chavanne; Svenson, Nanette – International Review of Education, 2016
As developing countries continue to battle poverty despite strong economic growth, understanding the relationship between equity and human development becomes increasingly important. In this context, equity is not equivalent to equality for any specific outcome such as health status, education or income. It is an objective ideal whereby people's…

Roche, Stephen – International Review of Education, 2016
It is a truth universally acknowledged that education and economic development go hand in hand. Not only is lack of education generally recognised as a cause of poverty, it has come to be recognised as one of three core "dimensions of poverty", alongside living standard and health (World Bank 2016). Despite strong economic growth…

Alas, Yabit; Anshari, Muhammad; Sabtu, Norakmarul Ihsan; Yunus, Norazmah – International Review of Education, 2016
The theory of planned behaviour attempts to explain factors which influence behaviour. One of these factors is intention. Positive or negative intentions are formed by a person's impression of the way other people would perceive similar behaviour (external forces). The authors of this study used the theory of planned behaviour to examine, compare…
