Thomas, Valérie; De Backer, Free; Peeters, Jeltsen; Lombaerts, Koen – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Both parental involvement and self-regulated learning are important predictors of students' study success. However, previous research on self-regulated learning has focused instead on the school environment and has not focused on the home situation. In particular, investigations into the role of parents in self-regulated learning when children…

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…

Bear, George G.; Yang, Chunyan; Pell, Megan; Gaskins, Clare – Learning Environments Research, 2014
Based on theory and research on learning environments, the Delaware School Climate Survey-Teacher/Staff (DSCS-T/S) was developed to provide schools with a brief, psychometrically sound measure of teachers' perceptions of school climate. Multigroup confirmatory factor analyses, conducted on a sample of 5,781 teachers, support staff,…

Cleveland, Benjamin; Fisher, Kenn – Learning Environments Research, 2014
This article critically reviews the methodologies and methods that have been used for the evaluation of physical learning environments. To contextualize discussion about the evaluation of learning spaces, we initially chart the development of post-occupancy evaluation (POE) for non-domestic buildings. We then discuss the recent evolution of POE…

Rebmann, Kristen Radsliff – Learning Environments Research, 2013
This article charts the development of three literacy research frameworks: multiliteracies, new literacies, and popular literacies. By reviewing the literature surrounding three current conceptions of literacy, an attempt is made to form an integrative grouping that captures the most relevant elements of each for learning environments design.…

Mathews, Samuel R.; Lowe, Katie – Learning Environments Research, 2011
In this article, we examine the disposition for critical thinking (CT) from three perspectives and analyse the underlying constructs of the disposition for CT, such as one's ability, sensitivity and inclination to engage in critical, mindful thought. Environmental factors that enhance or inhibit the development of a generalisable disposition for…

Yates, Shirley M. – Learning Environments Research, 2011
Reviews in many countries have found little evidence of consistent advantages in either single-sex education or coeducation. Over the last three decades, coeducation has been introduced into many single-sex schools, but there is a dearth of evidence from the student perspective of the impact of such changes on the classroom learning environment.…

Stes, Ann; De Maeyer, Sven; Van Petegem, Peter – Learning Environments Research, 2010
The Approaches to Teaching Inventory (ATI) is used to examine teachers' teaching approaches in higher education. Analyses into the validity and reliability of the original English ATI yielded positive results. In this study, we examined the degree to which these positive results can also be found for the Dutch version that we developed. Data were…

Jonsson, Anders; Baartman, Liesbeth K. J.; Lennung, Sven A. – Learning Environments Research, 2009
Professional schools prepare students to become competent professionals. Consequently, there is a need for assessments that can determine the acquisition of the relevant professional competencies. Although using performance assessment to replace traditional paper-and-pencil tests might provide one way to move forward, the use of performance…

de Brabander, Cornelis J.; Rozendaal, Jeroen S.; Martens, Rob L. – Learning Environments Research, 2009
In this study, we assessed the feasibility of a specific elaboration of the efficacy construct, distinguishing between personal and contextual aspects, as a criterion for comparing learning environments. The participants were 163 students from two student-regulated and two teacher-regulated programs in higher education. We measured students'…
