Clinton, Virginia; Wilson, Nicholas – Learning Environments Research, 2019
The well-known benefits of collaborative learning have prompted the development of active learning classrooms that are designed to facilitate peer interaction. Given the expense of designing active learning classrooms, examining student perceptions of these learning spaces is critical. Furthermore, it is not well understood how the type of…

Khalil, Nadine; Aldridge, Jill – Learning Environments Research, 2019
As part of major education reform efforts underway in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), teachers have been introducing cooperative teaching methods in their science classes. Given the limited research carried out in this context, we aimed to: first, provide evidence to support a modified and translated (Arabic/English) version of a well-known…

Ovbiagbonhia, A. R.; Kollöffel, Bas; den Brok, Perry – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Developing students' innovation competence is becoming increasingly important in higher education, yet few studies have actually investigated whether current learning environments are aimed at promoting this competence and whether students perceive that they have mastered this competence. This study aimed to map students' perceptions of the…

Aluri, Venkata L. N.; Fraser, Barry J. – Learning Environments Research, 2019
In this study, we measured students' perceptions of mathematics classroom learning environment and investigated their associations with students' achievement. The Mathematics-Related Constructivist-Oriented Classroom Learning Environment Survey (MCOLES) was developed with seven dimensions and 56 items, using theories surrounding classroom learning…

Pasha-Zaidi, Nausheen; Afari, Ernest; Sevi, Baris; Urganci, Betul; Durham, Justin – Learning Environments Research, 2019
The present study explored the relationship between grit, motivational beliefs and self-regulation among undergraduate students in the United States, the United Arab Emirates and Turkey. These factors place the responsibility of learning on the students, rather than the educational environment. As most studies continue to focus on Western,…

Salmi, Hannu; Thuneberg, Helena – Learning Environments Research, 2019
The goal of this research was to explore cognitive, self-determined learning and autonomous motivational effects in the context of a mobile science exhibition (N = 256) in Finland. The pupils were sixth-graders with an average age of 12 years 6 months. Autonomy experience, as measured by the Relative Autonomy Index (RAI), had an effect on how the…

Scherzinger, Marion; Wettstein, Alexander – Learning Environments Research, 2019
This study used questionnaires and systematic behavioural observations to examine how teachers, students and external observers perceived classroom disruptions, the teacher-student relationship and classroom management in grade 5 and 6 classrooms in Switzerland. The questionnaire showed that the students of a class agreed to a certain extent in…

Deieso, Donato; Fraser, Barry J. – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Past research has revealed that, relative to primary-school students, high-school students have less-positive attitudes to mathematics and perceive their classroom environments and teacher--student relationships less favourably. This study involved the transition experience of 541 students in 47 classes in 15 primary (year 7) and secondary (year…

Inda-Caro, Mercedes; Maulana, Ridwan; Fernández-García, Carmen-María; Peña-Calvo, José-Vicente; Rodríguez-Menéndez, M. del Carmen; Helms-Lorenz, Michelle – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Research consistently shows that teaching behaviour is a highly-important indicator of learning environments. Based on a teacher effectiveness model with six observable teaching behaviour domains (safe learning climate, efficient classroom management, clarity of instruction, activating teaching, teaching-learning strategies, and differentiation),…

Cipriano, Christina; Barnes, Tia N.; Pieloch, Kerrie A.; Rivers, Susan E.; Brackett, Marc – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Supportive classroom environments are associated with improved student outcomes, particularly during early adolescence (ages 10-14 years). Applying Bronfenbrenner's ecological systems theory to further investigate the microsystem of the school (Bronfenbrenner and Morris in The ecology of human development, Harvard University Press, Boston, 1998),…

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…

Deemer, Eric D.; Smith, Jessi L. – Learning Environments Research, 2018
The current research examined the psychometric properties and utility of a measure of college classroom environment in predicting goal-related outcomes rooted in goal contents and achievement goal theories. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses in Studies 1 and 2, respectively, yielded support for two distinct and gender-invariant classroom…

Hsu, Pei-Ling; Espinoza, Penelope – Learning Environments Research, 2018
Working with scientists has been suggested as an effective way for high-school students to learn authentic science. However, little research has involved students' perceptions of science learning environments in a university internship. This study drew on the theoretical framework of community of practice with cogenerative dialogues to design an…

Koul, Rekha B.; Fraser, Barry J.; Maynard, Nicoleta; Tade, Moses – Learning Environments Research, 2018
Because the importance of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education continues to be recognised around the world, we developed and validated an instrument to assess the learning environment and student attitudes in STEM classrooms, with a specific focus on engineering and technology (E&T) activities in primary schools.…

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…
