Sá, Elisabete; Dias, Diana; Sá, Maria José – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2018
The role of the university in society and the economy is evolving.

Morrison, Bruce; Evans, Stephen – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2018
One way that universities assess teaching effectiveness is by eliciting student feedback. However, what standards do students themselves use to judge whether a lecturer is a 'good' teacher?

Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) is often seen to be constraining and focused on specific skill development for specific occupations.

Leung, Doris Y. P.; Kember, David – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2005
An examination of the literature suggests that universities play a part in developing generic capabilities needed nowadays for societies, through immersing students in a stimulating campus environment. Part time students, though, spend less time on campus than their full time counterparts, and far less time than on-campus residents, so could be…
