Knowledge and expertise in higher education teaching
I am current co-curating (with Kathy Luckett) a special issue of Teaching in Higher Education journal entitled Experts, Knowledge and Criticality in the Age of ‘Alternative Facts’. The focus is on developing our understanding of how higher education pedagogies and curricula need to adapt in the light of the recent trends around ‘fake news’, ‘alternative facts’ and denigration of expertise.
We received nearly 100 abstracts in December 2017 and we had the very difficult task of selecting just 20 to invite as full-paper submissions. The special issue will be published in early March 2019. A successful symposium based around four of the papers was held at the SRHE annual conference in December 2018.
