Lippard, Cameron D. – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2017
The Confederate flag has been a hotly debated symbol of heritage or hate in the United States. In 2015, 54 per cent of Americans polled saw the flag as a symbol of 'Southern pride' whereas 34 per cent saw it as racist. However, 27 per cent of Whites compared to 69 per cent of Blacks saw the flag as racist. In this article, I suggest how…

In this article, we discuss how adding a final film project to a revised "Culture through Film" course led to deeper student learning and higher rates of student success, as well as increased student satisfaction. Ultimately, we urge social science educators to include experiential projects in their courses that connect to all learning…

This article puts forward an experiential teaching method for becoming aware of, getting access to, and giving meaning to the sensory experiences that constitute and shape learning processes during social anthropological fieldwork.

The study of U.S. elections as a part of introductory political science courses has become an increasingly difficult endeavour as students encounter the ever-changing landscape of electoral politics. Instructors seeking to equip students with the skills needed to navigate this complex terrain may look for partnerships with library faculty and…

Limoncelli, Stephanie A. – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2017
The increasing internationalisation of social science curricula in undergraduate education along with the growth of service-learning has provided new opportunities to join the two. This article offers a refection and discussion of service-learning with placements in international nongovernmental organisations (INGOs), drawing from its application…

Doerr, Neriko Musha – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2017
Though the concept "global learner" has become a buzzword in education, few have critically analysed it. This article examines three types of "unlikely global learners" who are not usually considered global learners even though they could be, according to a current definition: Maori- English bilingual students in Aotearoa/New…

Baker, Sally; Stirling, Eve – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2016
As technological developments accelerate, and neoliberal ideologies shift the ways that universities "do business," higher education is facing radical changes. Within this context, students' need to 'succeed' at university is more important than ever. Consequently, understanding students' transitions within this shifting higher education…

Shumar, Wesley – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2016
This article focuses on the ways that modern American universities are engaged in the process of articulating new producing and consuming subjects. It argues that the image of the engaged "media celebrity" intellectual, as presented in the TED Talk model, has become a cultural ideal that reconciles a deeper contradiction in the academy.…

Dodge, Jennifer; Holtzman, Richard; van Hulst, Merlijn; Yanow, Dvora – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2016
The "interpretive turn" has gained traction as a research approach in recent decades in the empirical social sciences. While the contributions of interpretive research and interpretive research methods are clear, we wonder: Does an interpretive perspective lend itself to--or even demand--a particular style of teaching? This question was…

Ayres, R. Williams – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2016
Much of our teaching about conflict relies on theoretical ideas and models that are delivered as finished products. This article explores the supposition that what students need is not already-formed theoretical ideas, but exposure to more real-world cases of conflict from which to build theory. The article presents an experiment in pedagogy:…

Bennett, Cary – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2016
Assessment rubrics are being promoted and introduced into tertiary teaching practices on the grounds that they are an efficient and reliable tool to evaluate student performance effectively and promote student learning. However, there has been little discussion on the value of using assessment rubrics in higher education. Rather, they are being…

Thiele, Megan; Pan, Yung-Yi Dian; Molina, Devin – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2016
Karl Marx's revolutionary call, "Workers of the World Unite," resonates with many in today's society. This article describes and assesses an easily reproducible classroom activity that simulates both alienating, and perhaps more importantly, non-alienating states of production as described by Marx. This hands-on learning activity gives…

Newfield, Christopher – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2016
The large-scale massive open online course (xMOOC) rose to prominence in 2012-13 on the promise that its outcomes would be better and cheaper than those of face-to-face university instruction. By late 2013, xMOOC educational claims had been largely discredited, though policy interest in ed-tech carried on. What can we learn about the future of…

Peters, Michael A. – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2016
This special issue focused on "Digital Media and Contested Visions of Education" provides an opportunity to examine the tendency to hypothesise a rupture in the history of the university. It does so by contrasting the traditional Humboldtian ideals of the university with a neoliberal marketised version and in order to ask questions…

In this report, I outline and provide examples of an approach to using an international edition of an introductory sociology textbook to facilitate cross-cultural learning and critical thinking skills in an EFL (English as a foreign language) environment at a small engineering university in the United Arab Emirates.
