Our Higher Education books provide a scholarly and practical entry point for academics into key areas of higher education practice. All the books are informed by recent research, critiqued by the authors, and raise critical questions for practice. They explore individual topics or issues in depth, encourage readers to engage with ideas and examples of practice from beyond their immediate context, and challenge them to look at their own work and to identify ways in which they can build their own professional practice.
