Muñoz-García, Ana Luisa – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2019
This article aims to analyse the multiple ways in which the neoliberal regulation of knowledge is negotiated by returning Chilean scholars.

Muliavka, Viktoriia – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2019
Despite the diversity of socio-political and economic contexts, educational transformations in post-socialist states have some common trends: orientation towards the 'West' and denial of the socialist past; marketisation of higher education through the introduction and extension of paid services, as well as promotion of competition for public…

Payne, Geoff – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2018
Most undergraduates' main, hands-on involvement in student engagement is completing satisfaction surveys, such as the U.K. National Student Survey (NSS), whose findings make significant contributions to university policy formation.

Hayes, Sarah – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2018
The 'academic orthodoxy' (Brookfield 1986) of student engagement is questioned by Zepke, who suggests that it supports 'a neoliberal ideology' (2014: 698). In reply, Trowler argues that Zepke fails to explain the mechanisms linking neoliberalism to the concepts and practices of student engagement (2015: 336). In this article, I respond to the…

In the U.K., 'student engagement', and the related 'student experience', are increasingly measured, interpreted and then marketed to students as a basis on which to choose the 'best' place for their higher education.

Zgaga, Pavel – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2018
This article addresses why and how mobility has become central to the EU's idea of doctoral education, aiming to reconstruct, in a historical perspective, the gradual conceptualisation of mobility as a policy idea.
