‘Higher Education as if the World Mattered’

Paterson’s Land, Moray House School of Education, Holyrood Road, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, EH8 8AQ.


Thursday 25th  and Friday 26th April 2013


organised by

The Higher Education Research Group

(Institute for Education, Community and Society, The University of Edinburgh)

in partnership with

The Society for Research into Higher Education (SRHE)


Higher education matters in this world. Indeed, it matters more than ever before in its long history. In the so-called ‘knowledge economy’ and ‘knowledge society’ higher education is high on every government’s agenda.


This conference will seek to explore social justice in and through higher education by examining recent policies and practices in relation to six broad strands of higher education: Research and knowledge mobilisation; Curriculum; Pedagogy; Access and participation; Institutional leadership; Quality and educational development.


Over the two days paper presenters and keynote speakers will seek to analyse the assumptions underpinning policy and practice, arrive at judgements about the extent to which the world is seen to matter and offer suggestions on how things could be different from how they are. Running across these six strands are concerns related to internationalisation, funding, and lifelong learning.


Keynote Speakers


Professor Melanie Walker, Free State University, SA

Professor Monica McLean, University of Nottingham, UK

Professor Jon Nixon, Senior Research Fellow, Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKIE), and Honorary Professor, University of Sheffield, UK

Professor Ray Land, Durham University, UK
