Policy approaches, ‘problems’ and ‘solutions’: Working towards equity of access and widening participation in Australian higher education
This Issue presents papers that explore widening participation (WP) within Australian contexts. The contributions discuss a diversity of activities, programs, disciplinary concepts, methodological approaches, challenges and opportunities in the field. However, all explore important issues relating to the contemporary challenges that policy, educational structures and dominant conceptual assumptions pose for access, equity and WP. Whilst situated in the Australian context, all contributions provide insights about issues that are important and challenging for WP across international contexts.
