The Relevance of Style

https://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/large/public/media/CTA-IHE-banner640-150.png?itok=VxlaUtWrThese days, my colleagues and I are encouraged to see so many institutions of higher education paying attention to the voice of their brands and thinking about how to write effectively across campus. What we don’t see discussed, however, is editorial style—a topic that, granted, isn’t nearly as sexy but merits some attention. More...

Life in Academe, Part I: The Pipeline

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/large/public/digital_tweed_blog_header.jpgBy Kenneth C. Green. February is a busy time in the academic hiring cycle.  This is when departmental and institutional committees scour resumes and interview candidates for faculty and administrative positions that will typically begin not in the coming weeks (as would be the case with off-campus, non-academic jobs) but for the coming academic year that, depending on the position and campus calendar, begins in July, August, or September.

The Future of Work - and the Future of Management Education

By Margaret Andrews. It’s hard to think about the future of management education without thinking about the future of work. In case you haven’t noticed, there is no shortage of predictions about the future of work.

UK Enrolment Growth After the Cap

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/large/public/student_affairs_and_technology_blog_header.jpgBy Eric Stoller. Before reading this post, please note that I've lived in the UK for less than 5 years...so my knowledge of higher education history "across the pond" is an ever-expanding enterprise.

Why You Should Attend #Digifest18 and #CASESMC

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/large/public/student_affairs_and_technology_blog_header.jpgBy Eric Stoller. This year marks the third in a row that I will be attending two events within the UK higher education sector that at first glance may appear to be unrelated (at least in terms of attendees). However, as is often the case in HE, both of these conferences definitely complement one another. More...

Chasing the Lit Mag Photo Essay, 1

By Oronte. It was another new year in a strange time. I’d spent 2017 friending, liking, and following the left, the right, the militant, the compliant, the ungodly, the pious, the cheerful, the gloomy, and many others for the next book. My Facebook feed was a hellbroth of voices, but all agreed something had to be done. More...
