ABSTRACTThis study aims to determine the benefits of student-centred teaching methods for students’ cognitive and practical improvement and the mediating effect of deep learning on the relationship between them. We developed a scale of student-centred teaching for the Chinese context using exploratory factor analysis, confirmatory factor analysis and reliability analysis. Data were collected from 976 students from 16 large classes in a university in Mainland China. Results showed that the studen...

ABSTRACTAttention to precarious employment in higher education settings been growing in the last two decades. Discussion of this form of employment in higher education has focused on impacts on the quality of teaching and student experience, particularly in undergraduate courses where the majority of casual staff are employed. However, little has been written about the impact of precarity on doctoral supervision. This article reports on a case study into supervision of doctoral studies in Austra...
ABSTRACTThis study aims to explore university students’ intention to use mobile learning management systems (m-LMS) in higher education in Sweden. To address this, a research model based on the technology acceptance model (TAM) and nine research hypotheses are developed. In addition to perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use from the TAM, the research model includes academic relevance, university management support and perceived mobility value from previous literature as external variable...
ABSTRACTAlthough dissertations have traditionally been part of master’s programmes, non-dissertation track master’s programmes are on the rise across the world. This paper reports faculty views on MA TESOL dissertations (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) in five Anglophone countries. Drawing on the academic literacies tradition and informed by Bourdieusian concepts of ‘field’, ‘habitus’ and ‘symbolic violence’, the results suggest that the need for more student intake has affected...

ABSTRACTThis article describes one aspect of a research project that sought to describe and interpret the perspectives of university colleagues who are community-engaged, about their community-engagement, within one research-intensive university in New Zealand. We explored the communication devices and processes used during community engagement, with a focus on social media, and in the context of identifying the professional development needs of colleagues within our institution. Our research in...

AbstractIn South Africa under apartheid, higher education was unavailable to a large segment of the population. Many who enrol for an undergraduate degree today are thus mature students or ‘adult learners’ 25 years or older who are in full-time employment. Since these students learn differently from their younger peers, institutions need to know what factors influence their academic performance, so as to target interventions and support services accordingly. Performance in the first year is a si...

AbstractAlthough the importance of students’ argumentative peer feedback for learning is undeniable, there is a need for further empirical evidence on whether and how it is related to various aspects of argumentation-based learning namely argumentative essay writing, domain-specific learning, and attitudinal change while considering their epistemic beliefs which are known to be related to argumentation. In this study, a pre-test–post-test design was conducted with 42 higher education students wh...
AbstractThe present article seeks to discover the autonomous work strategies used by students studying different degrees: Social Education, Early Childhood Education and Pedagogy, applying the methodology of problem-based learning and determining student profiles according to their learning strategies. We also sought to explore the relationship between the strategies used and the level of achievement in the skills evaluated through self-assessment and teacher assessment. The Autonomous Work Stra...
