Irish technological universities and the binary divide: a qualitative study

A graduate of School of Education, Dr Ludovic Highman, recently had an article published in The International Journal of Higher Education Research on the creation of Irish technological universities. The article entitled 'Irish technological universities and the binary divide: a qualitative study'. This article aims to examine and analyse the perceptions of senior policy-makers, lobby groups representatives and both higher education academics and professional managers on the establishing of technological universities in Ireland, and its implications for the fabric of the Irish higher education system, in terms of the structure of the Irish higher education system, academic drift and the diversity of Irish higher education institutions.

Ludovic acknowledges the assistance of the School of Education and the post-doctoral research associate bursary he received during his study in Trinity.

The article can be viewed on the Higher Education journal website.
