Struggles for Empowerment

Higher education stories from East and West

  • Ambreen Shahriar
  • Teresa Bruen
Two disparate research studies, one in a poor rural province of Pakistan and one in rural Ireland, tell the stories of students who enter higher education against all the odds. The studies reveal that these students have to overcome remarkably similar obstacles due to social and economic inequality, but the two cohorts do so in different ways.

Reframing Space for Learning

Empowering excellence and innovation in university teaching and learning

  • Tim Bilham
  • Claire Hamshire
  • Mary Hartog
  • Martina A. Doolan
The concept, use and experience of ‘space’ in higher education have a deep influence on students and teachers. Reframing Space for Learning uniquely explores space as both a ‘learning place’ that may be physical, virtual, in work or in the field, and a ‘belonging space’ in which all learners can learn, engage, and develop individually and collectively. It describes and analyses how a number of National Teaching Fellows have developed innovative ways of using of place and space for learning across disciplines in higher education. In so doing, they provide practical ideas, inspiration and solutions for practitioners responsible for delivering learning in spaces within and outside universities, nationally and internationally. The National Teaching Fellowship scheme, awarded by the UK’s Higher Education Academy, celebrates and recognizes individuals who have made an outstanding impact on student outcomes and the student profession in higher education.
