Mataira, Peter J. – International Review of Education, 2019
Ongoing colonial power has long been ascribed to government bureaucracy and institutions of higher learning.

Andersen, Bjarke Lindsø; Na-songkhla, Jaitip; Hasse, Cathrine; Nordin, Norazah; Norman, Helmi – International Review of Education, 2018
Spurred on by rapid advances of technology, massive open online courses (MOOCs) have proliferated over the past decade.

The proliferation and expansion of massive open online courses (MOOCs) prompts a need to revisit classical pedagogical questions. In what ways will MOOCs facilitate and promote new e-learning pedagogies? Is current learning design adequate for the "massiveness" and "openness" of MOOCs? This article discusses the ways in which…

Against a United Kingdom policy background of attempts to widen higher education participation in a socially inclusive direction, this article analyses theory, policy and practice to understand why past efforts have had limited success and to propose an alternative: an "anchor institution" model.

Powell, Philip; Walsh, Anita – International Review of Education, 2018
Public dissatisfaction with academic research, coupled with the rising costs of higher education (HE) and reduced government funding, are forcing academics to convince society of the benefits of their research.

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…

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…

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…

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.

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…

Crea, Thomas M.; McFarland, Mary – International Review of Education, 2015
Refugees experience limited access to adequate education at all levels, but opportunities for higher education are especially lacking.
