Falconer, Heather M. – Written Communication, 2019
Negotiating membership within a disciplinary community is as much an exercise in rhetorical facility as it is content expertise.

Yet, there are many factors that can impact newcomers' acculturation into a disciplinary…

Webb, O. J.; Cotton, D. R. E. – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2019
The second year of university is little-researched, despite being a focal point for declining performance, persistence, and satisfaction. It is important to establish appropriate methods for studying this 'sophomore slump' and to pinpoint specific antecedents from broad domains noted in literature (e.g. students' social integration, perceptions of…

Tsang, Tiffany Lee – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Some scholars speculate that humanities education, as compared to STEM education, may be better able to provide students with the most in-demand twenty-first century workplace skill: innovation. Due to the lack of empirical research on this topic, this study compares US humanities and STEM students' college gains in their 'propensity toward…

Inon, Magen – Ethics and Education, 2019
