Tarc, Paul – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
The internationalization of education (IE) has accelerated across the past two decades.

Sojot, Amy N. – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
Asking after the self in the process of learning without a definitive endpoint or prescribed path to creating that knowledge presents a way to consider a self that is distinct from assumptions of what constitutes an ideal learner.

Gibbons, Andrew – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
The papers in this special issue on the spaces of pedagogy speak to the failures of neoliberal thinking when applied to education.

The work that we do and how we do that work is formed through our view of the world, shaped within our own ways of knowing and prioritized by the needs of people and the lessons of place. This article illustrates what one educational policy, filtered through one way of knowing, and prioritized by the needs of people and place looks like in higher…

We assert that, by broadening the definition of "teacher…
