Editorial Committee Introduction

Welcome to Issue 2 Volume 2 of The IAFOR Academic Review. In this edition we, the editorial committee, bring together a selection of the most interesting contributions from our Education conferences, with respect to discussion surrounding Higher Education and Learning. In many educational settings and contexts throughout the world, there remains an assumption that teachers are the possessors of knowledge, which is to be imparted to students, and that this happens in neutral, impartial and objective ways. However, learning is about making meaning, and learners can experience the same teaching in very different ways. Students (as well as educators) are part of complex social, cultural, political, ideological and personal circumstances, and current experiences of learning will depend in part on previous ones, as well as on age, gender, social class, culture, ethnicity, varying abilities and more. The papers selected by the editorial committee for this special edition certainly reflect the international, intercultural and interdisciplinary approach that lies at the heart of both IAFOR and the global goals of Higher Education that we both work and live in as career academics.
