Higher Education Governance - Oxford bibliography

Higher Education Governance Michael Dobbins ,  Jens Jungblut LAST MODIFIED: 27 JUNE 2018 DOI: 10.1093/OBO/9780199756810-0203 Introduction The governance of higher education has been a prominent topic for investigation at least since Burton Clark’s foundational 1983 study on the higher education system (see  General Overview and Historical Studies ).

Critical Studies in Teaching and Learning (CriSTaL) latest edition

This issue begins with a very special editorial, in which our editor-in-chief, Vivienne Bozalek, pays tribute to our late Reviews Editor, Brenda Leibowitz, who passed away in April. All of the reviews in this issue were commissioned by Brenda, and all of the articles connect with issues in higher education that resonated deeply with Brenda: social justice, access and inclusion, and creating spaces for learning and teaching that embrace diversity, difference and care.
