This insightful book offers a wide-ranging collection of lively discussions on contemporary issues, policies and practices in higher education. Bartram integrates contributions from experienced academics, teachers and students in a unique approach and structure, designed to enable students with both specific and wide-ranging interests in higher education to extend their understanding.

Including discussion points, research tasks and suggestions on further reading in each chapter, Understanding Contemporary Issues in Higher Education discusses a range of topics, such as:

  • universities and the mental health 'crisis';
  • knowledge, the state and the market;
  • the role of technology in teaching and academic celebrification;
  • disability, diversity and inclusive placement learning.

Written specifically for Education Studies students, this book constitutes a timely addition to student-focused themed studies looking at aspects of higher education.
