Student and Teacher Perceptions of Learning and Teaching: A Case Study
Budge, Kylie; Cowlishaw, Keith
Journal of Further and Higher Education, v36 n4 p549-565 2012
Exploring student and teacher perspectives on approaches to learning and teaching reveals interesting insights and new understandings for practice by involving the two key groups of participants in the learning and teaching story. Do students understand and experience learning and teaching similarly or differently from the way teachers intend them to? This paper describes the findings of a study that explored perceptions of learning and teaching in one discipline of an Australian dual-sector university from both a student and staff perspective. Teachers' conceptions of teaching are also explored and provide extra insight and understanding of the approach to learning and teaching taking place. Key findings of this multifaceted study employing a case study with a mixed method approach include a difference between students' and teachers' perceptions of approaches to learning and teaching. Implications for broader practice are highlighted and explored. (Contains 4 tables and 3 figures.)
