ICCE IV

INTERROGATING THE HIGHER EDUCATION RESEARCH / POLICY INTERFACE

Society for Research into Higher Education (SRHE)

Date – Wed 2nd April 2014, 13.00-16.00pm

Venue – London Metropolitan University

Network – Higher Education Policy Network

 

Higher education researchers often want their research to make a difference, and policy makers often profess a commitment to evidence-based policy-making, but how easy is it to communicate across these different communities? This seminar will provide an opportunity to explore these issues.

 

‘Bearing bad news’ Dr. Vikki Boliver (DurhamUniversity)

Reflecting on her attempts to publicise research showing that White and privately educated applicants are more likely to be offered places at Russell Group universities than equally well qualified applicants from ethnic minority backgrounds and state schools, Dr. Boliver considers ways to foster productive engagement with bad-news research findings.

‘Can researchers and policy makers speak to each other, or are they always looking the other way?’: Professor Jim Gallacher (GlasgowCaledonianUniversity)

Professor Gallacher draws on his experience of working both as an active researcher and co-director of the Centre for Research in Lifelong Learning (CRLL), and an adviser to the Scottish Parliament and a member of the board of the Scottish Funding Council, to consider whether the policy and research communities can have meaningful dialogues.

Lunch will be available at 1pm and the event will start at 1.40. After each paper there will be time for questions and discussion, followed by an opportunity to discuss issues raised in both papers over tea or coffee.

Higher Education Identities

HIGHER EDUCATION IDENTITIES, CULTURES AND PRACTICES

SRHE Higher Educational Policy Network

Tuesday 11th October 4-6.30pm, Room T1-20, London Metropolitan University

Higher education identities, cultures and practices: a changing policy context

The higher education sector in the UK is experiencing dramatic change. The financial crisis, a change of government and ongoing developments in the positioning and role of higher education institutions present new challenges for those who work in universities. This seminar will explore the implications of these changes for academic and professional identities, cultures and practices.

 

Dr Celia Whitchurch, Institute of Education, University of London    

Reconstructing Identities in Higher Education – Expanding the Parameters of Academia

In a context in which academics are increasingly working across multiple constituencies and with internal and external partners, this paper explores the factors that influence individuals to take on such work. It considers the impact on academic identities and career paths and the implications for institutions of more complex roles and relationships.

Dr Jill Jameson, University of Greenwich

Changing Leadership Identities: the Role of Trust and Organisational Cultures in a Recessionary UK Higher Education Policy Context

This paper considers how changing leadership values, trust and organisational cultures impact upon the identities of academic, professional and corporate leaders in HE. It also explores how the academic and intellectual aspects of HE leadership identities can be strengthened and trust rebuilt to fulfil the complex purposes of universities.

Tea and coffee will be available at 4pm and the event will start at 4.15. After each paper there will be time for questions and discussion, followed by an opportunity to discuss issues raised in both papers over a glass of wine or juice.
