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.

Björck, Ville; Johansson, Kristina – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
This study uses a Foucault-inspired discourse analysis to examine two ideas about learning which reinforce the terminology whereby theory means campus-based training and practice means work placements. The purpose is to problematise this theory-practice terminology and provide scope for a non-dualistic alternative. The ideas examined are the idea…

Uiboleht, Kaire; Karm, Mari; Postareff, Liisa – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
In recent decades, a constructivist view of learning has triggered a change in teaching-learning environments (TLEs). Teacher-centred TLEs have been replaced by student-centred ones where the teachers' approaches to teaching are more learning- than content-focused. Previous research exploring the relationship between student-centred TLEs and the…

Meehan, Catherine; Howells, Kristy – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Previous research that evaluated first year students' transition into university found that the values of 'being, belonging and becoming' were important in particular within the first few months and within the first year of university. From our previous work, we reported that three things matter to students: the academic staff they work with, the…

Holliman, Andrew J.; Sheriston, Lee; Martin, Andrew J.; Collie, Rebecca J.; Sayer, Demi – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Individual differences in 'adaptability' -- cognitive, behavioural, and emotional adjustment in the face of change, novelty, and uncertainty -- are theorised to influence students' academic achievement and course satisfaction; although the literature examining these relations in tertiary education is sparse. In the present study, first-year…

Magnusson, Jenny; Zackariasson, Maria – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Independence is a concept of scholarly interest in relation to higher education, especially when it comes to undergraduate projects. At the same time independence is characterised by a certain conceptual ambiguity, and, consequently, tends to be understood differently in different academic contexts, both nationally, internationally and…

Öhrstedt, Maria; Lindfors, Petra – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Students' ways of approaching their studies influence their academic outcomes. Expecting high grades and having the skills to steer learning activities towards assessment demands seem to be important components of academic success. However, our knowledge about students' capacity to predict academic achievement is limited. Focusing on…

McKay, Jane; O'Neill, Deborah; Petrakieva, Lina – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2018

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…
