According to Biggs (1993) higher education can be understood as a system of nested sub-systems and good pedagogical practices need to be capable of working throughout this system. As academic language and learning has changed from focusing on specific (groups of) students to whole of institution approaches (Harper, 2013), academic language and learning practices now have to occur throughout the systems of higher education. In undertaking these practices, academic language and learning practition...
Support for developing writing within a disciplinary context has led to widespread embedding of academic literacy in the curriculum. Yet when embedding does take place it is often left to delivery from writing specialists working collaboratively with the discipline academic. Despite the widely held opinion that it is “the tutor’s role as expert speaker of a specialized discourse” (Northedge, 2003) to give students access to that discourse, programs that embed writing practices into academic cont...

This article contributes to the literature by presenting an empirical analysis of a programme that was designed to expose students to the complexities of academic practices in conjunction with disciplinary concepts. The impact of the programme was evaluated through analysis of student grades before and after its implementation and student and...

It is widely reported that previous study in economics and maths play an important role in determining student performance in tertiary economics. This paper examines the determination of academic performance by adding a slightly broader range of factors that include socio-economic background to the main factors already identified in the literature. The paper regresses overall subject results for students enrolled in a core, first year economics subject at a large cosmopolitan university against ...

This paper extends the literature on grader variation and the role of moderation and socialisation processes in reducing this variation. It offers a fresh categorisation of academics’ assessment beliefs and expectations, and uses this categorisation to analyse the interaction between implicit and explicit expectations in relation to grader variation and socialisation processes. A combination of quantitative and qualitative data from a large class grading moderation process was used to identify t...
