Research has demonstrated that learning is impaired if students multitask with media while encountering new information. However, some have gone further, and suggested that media-multitasking (as a general activity) may have a negative impact on cognitive control processes. If this were the case, students who are heavy media-multitaskers generally would have difficulties with goal-directed behaviour, and organising their time effectively to meet their learning goals. The study described here exp...

Self-regulated learning assumes learners are active agents who can establish and make progress toward learning goals. Classroom activities can facilitate the emergence of self-regulated learning. One strategy to encourage self-regulated learning is to ask students to develop questions for a quiz or examination. The process of developing questions scaffolds higher-order thinking. Rather than just memorize or apply the material, students must think about how to evaluate their knowledge of the mate...

Few studies have assessed the particular relationships between students’ emotional well-being, both positive and negative and their learning. This study followed a cohort of mature students through their first semester at university. Four dimensions of emotional well-being were captured (enthusiasm, contentment, anxiety and depression) at three points in time during the semester. In addition, at the end of the semester, assessments were made of learning behaviours, affect and academic achievemen...

This article discusses and challenges the increasing use of plagiarism detection services such as Turnitin and Grammarly by students, arguing that the increasingly online nature of composition is having a profound effect on student composition processes. This dependence on the Internet is leading to a strategy I term ‘de-plagiarism’, in which students copy/paste text into their essays and then ‘cleanse’ the text to avoid plagiarism detection. I then argue that this is being done in the context o...

Self-assessment activities are increasingly popular in the classrooms. But regarding self-assessment accuracy, mixed results are reported without clear reasons for this. This article addresses the impact of gender and performance on self-assessment accuracy. To evaluate self-assessment accuracy, peer and professor assessments are used as reference. A research project, relating to the assessment of oral presentations using scoring rubrics, is conducted in two university degrees. Data from 155 sel...

This article focuses on students’ perceptions of small-group activities, discussion, and technology-based interactivity implemented in two different learning environments, namely, in a large, traditional lecture hall and in a smaller classroom. The Engaged Learning Index, developed by Schreiner and Louis, was used along with several items to determine student perceptions of the activities that they had been asked to undertake. This followed a faculty training program designed to help faculty to ...

The study reported here investigated reading among students from the perspective of how students choose to use their time and whether they self-ration it. A survey of undergraduate students found that their self-reported allocation of time to academic activities other than reading was positively correlated to the reading that they did and that students’ reading was significantly correlated to their belief of being time constrained. Furthermore, the study found that students’ participation in non...
