Badenhorst, Cecile – London Review of Education, 2018
Writing a literature review requires highly sophisticated academic literacies. Many postgraduate students find this genre a challenge.

Chua, S. M. J. – London Review of Education, 2018
In this paper, I give various reasons why the doctorate in education (EdD) programme helpfully heightens our normative senses. The writing of a thesis in time, and hence the realization that the same time--that window of opportunity--to do other things and enjoy other experiences is traded off, comports the student in a manner that heightens his…

Bladh, Gabriel; Stolore, Martin; Kristiansson, Martin – London Review of Education, 2018
Previous subject-specific education research has shown that education in social studies subjects is dominated by strong subject traditions, while current social issues are seldom addressed and the connection to academic disciplines is weak. Putting this result into context, we discuss how the debate initiated by Michael Young about 'powerful…

Golding, Jennie – London Review of Education, 2018

It suggests that the global…
