Lin, Shuqiong; Salazar, Timothy R.; Wu, Shuang – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Utilising data from a research university (N = 7219), we examined the extent to which three factors, climate of diversity (COD), course learning experience (CLE) and research practice experience, predicted undergraduates' overall satisfaction. COD was the most influential predictor of student satisfaction after controlling for the other two. In…

Goedhart, N. S.; Blignaut-van Westrhenen, N.; Moser, C.; Zweekhorst, M. B. M. – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Higher education faces several challenges including both increased student diversity and the use of technologies. The flipped classroom approach has been proposed as a way to address some of these challenges. This study examined the effects of a flipped classroom trial conducted during a Master's course at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in the…

Wijnen, Marit; Loyens, Sofie M. M.; Wijnia, Lisette; Smeets, Guus; Kroeze, Maarten J.; Van der Molen, Henk T. – Learning Environments Research, 2018
In this study, a mixed-method design was employed to investigate the association between a student-centred, problem-based learning (PBL) method and law students' motivation. Self-determination theory (SDT) states that autonomous motivation, which is associated with higher academic performance, can be reached when there is fulfillment of three…

Premo, Joshua; Lamb, Richard; Cavagnetto, Andy – Learning Environments Research, 2018
A common problem in education is getting students to cooperate effectively in groups during learning. Because interdisciplinary research has established that cooperation is sensitive to specific contextual factors such as reciprocity, friendship and benefit, similar factors could be shaping student interactions in contemporary classroom…

Uiboleht, Kaire; Karm, Mari; Postareff, Liisa – Learning Environments Research, 2018
The interaction between approaches to teaching and students' learning has been the focus of research for more than 20 years. Previous studies concerning approaches to teaching in higher education have identified two broad categories: content- and learning-focused approaches. Some studies indicate that teachers do not always adopt a consonant…

Alt, Dorit – Learning Environments Research, 2017
The increasing calls for diversity research signal a need to explore contemporary learning and instruction strategies that respond to diversity in courses and curricula. The major objective of this research was to measure the level of openness to diversity and challenge (ODC) among college students as a function of their perceived constructivist…

Kwitonda, Jean Claude – Learning Environments Research, 2017
This study focused on foundational aspects of classroom relations. Specifically, relationships between teachers' immediacy (interpersonal) behaviours, classroom democracy, identification and learning were considered. Previous work suggests that these variables can be used as a foundation to shape classroom climate, culture and learning outcomes…
