Balaban, Corina – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2018
This article discusses three kinds of mobility among early stage researchers: geographical mobility, mobility between disciplines -- or interdisciplinarity -- and cross-sectoral mobility.

Bönisch-Brednich, Brigitte – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2018
This article examines what it means to be an academic in the knowledge economy, using auto-ethnographic writing or storytelling as its starting point. Although academic mobility has been researched for about a decade, deep listening and deep reading in the context of ethnography have not been utilised in analysing what it means to move in this…

Huckestein, Hailey L.; Mikulic, Steven M.; Bernstein, Jeffrey L. – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2018
When studying the political development of young people, level of education matters. However, instead of concentrating on the amount of education and how it affects one's political attributes (vertical effects of education), we consider the effects of characteristics of one's education, specifically one's college major, among people with similar…

In my role as programme leader of the BA (Hons) Criminal Justice and Criminology, I observed that students who entered with A-levels were more likely to achieve a 2:1 or 1st class degree than students from other routes of entry. Analysis of five cohorts showed that less than half of entrants with Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC)…

Zackariasson, Maria – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2018
Within Swedish higher education, there is an explicit focus on the importance of independence, not least in relation to degree projects, which makes it a significant issue within supervision. What student independence comprises and how it may be achieved, however, is rarely discussed, even though the expectations of independence may be a stressful…

This article considers the role of experiments in learning in movements to democratise higher education "under the rule of capital" (Gutierrez, Navarro and Linsalata 2017). It focuses on the emergence of a new generation of "free universities" in the United Kingdom, situating these in a historical tradition of educational…

Wright, Susan; Greenwood, Davydd J. – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2017
After analysing the organisational pathologies and societal ills created by the neoliberalisation of universities, the article engages in an organisational critique of the pseudo-business model currently in use. It poses as a solution the re-creation of universities as trusts, with a model of beneficiary ownership, a matrix form of organisation…

Thompsett, Fern – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2017
Free universities are diverse but loosely networked projects that resist repressive capitalist and state configurations of power by re-imagining teaching, learning and research on their own terms, often through radical and ongoing experimentation. Drawing from my own experiences as a co-founder and organiser of the Brisbane Free University, along…

Frank, Anna M.; Froese, Rebecca; Hof, Barbara C.; Scheffold, Maike I. E.; Schreyer, Felix; Zeller, Mathias; Rödder, Simone – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2017
The ability to conduct interdisciplinary research is crucial to address complex real-world problems that require the collaboration of different scientific fields, with global warming being a case in point. To produce integrated climate-related knowledge, climate researchers should be trained early on to work across boundaries and gain an…
