Badenhorst, Cecile M. – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Literature reviews are a genre that many graduate students do not fully understand and find difficult to write. While the genre, language and rhetorical moves of literature reviews are widely researched, less research focuses on citation use in literature reviews. Teaching students 'how-to' write the literature review through explicit genre…

Bokosmaty, Sahar; Ehrich, John; Eady, Michelle J.; Bell, Kenton – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Prior research on plagiarism has indicated that men may have a greater predisposition toward academic dishonesty than women. However, little research has been conducted using psychometrically tested instruments to validate such claims. To address this gap, a survey was conducted with 377 undergraduate students at a Canadian university on their…

Zdaniuk, Agnes; Gruman, Jamie A.; Cassidy, Scott A. – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Research on the pedagogical value of providing students with PowerPoint (PPT) slide handouts has produced mixed results. One reason for the inconsistent findings may be that most studies in this stream of research have neglected to examine individual differences. In the current study, we aimed to advance research on the pedagogical value of…

Yeo, Michelle; Boman, Jennifer – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Change in assessment practice in higher education tends to lag behind pedagogical change. Thinking about assessment practice is, in part, related to disciplinary thinking. In this study, 27 faculty members from a broad range of disciplines were interviewed about their conceptions of assessment to help understand the distinctions and priorities of…

Miller, Carlin J.; Borsatto, Julia; Al-Salom, Patricia – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Mindfulness practices have become a common component of daily life in many settings and may serve to bolster resiliency, particularly among university students. This study expanded on our previous work to compare the effects of receiving or not receiving a brief daily mindfulness-based practice in large-scale university courses. Data were…

Marquis, Elizabeth; Power, Emily; Yin, Melanie – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
While a large body of research considers factors enabling or constraining academic development in colleges and universities, comparatively little scholarship has considered the roles students might play in supporting positive change in staff teaching practices. This article explores one potential avenue by which such change might play out,…

Pizarro Milian, Roger; Davidson, Cliff – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2018
Existing research on marketing within PSE tends to focus on homogeneous groups of high-status organisations. This study ameliorates this gap in the literature, conducting a comparative analysis of promotional materials produced by public universities and community colleges in Ontario, Canada. We find that these two groups draw on unique strategies…

Study programme withdrawal and student perseverance in post-secondary education are major challenges for post-secondary institutions, especially in view of the increasing difficulty of retaining the student clientele during the first year of university studies. To analyse the challenges students face in terms of learning strategies, we asked…

Pizarro Milian, Roger; Rizk, Jessica – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2018
Concern with university rankings have become widespread throughout post-secondary education (PSE), fuelled in part by administrative concerns that demotions down the rank ladder will produce negative institutional outcomes. There is reason to believe, however, that ranking 'effects' may be partially muted in Canadian PSE due to the (1) national…

Sá, Elisabete; Dias, Diana; Sá, Maria José – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2018
The role of the university in society and the economy is evolving. Universities produce knowledge that promotes technological developments, which are, in turn, critical to economic growth and competitiveness in the global economy. Therefore, it is increasingly expected that universities become more entrepreneurial and assume this third mission in…

Anderson, Scott; Goss, Allen; Inglis, Mike; Kaplan, Alan; Samarbakhsh, Laleh; Toffanin, Melissa – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2018
We studied the impact of clickers, also known as electronic student response systems, on the performance of students on two undergraduate finance courses. Consistent with some of the recent literature, we found that clickers have very little impact on student performance, as measured by final course grades. Further, we found that clickers do not…

Bourque, Claude Julie; Bourdon, Sylvain – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2017
Drawing on the experience of training graduate students and researchers in qualitative and mixed-methods analysis since the mid-1990s, the authors reflect on the evolution of a multidisciplinary graduate course developed in a Canadian university since 2007. The hands-on/hands-off course design based on the use of NVivo was developed in parallel…
