Stagg, Bethan C.; Verde, Michael F. – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Scientific drawing and writing are critical to the development of observational and recording skills in biology. However, it is unclear how the process of drawing and writing contribute to the learning of plant taxonomy. In the present study, 41 adult botanical novices studied a suite of UK native plant species using two methods: labelled drawing…

Wilkinson, Clare – Studies in Higher Education, 2019
The principle that research should demonstrate impact is now a central driver in UK research policy, with some describing the UK as having undergone a 'culture change' in regards to evidencing the value and contribution of academic research (Watermeyer, R. 2012. "From Engagement to Impact? Articulating the Public Value of Academic…

Denovan, Andrew; Dagnall, Neil; Dhingra, Katie; Grogan, Sarah – Studies in Higher Education, 2019
University life can be stressful, and accurate measurement of perceived stress is important for research and practice. However, despite widespread use, disagreement persists regarding the latent structure of the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS), which poses serious consequences for how the measure should be administered. Furthermore, factorial…

George-Williams, Stephen R.; Karis, Dimitri; Ziebell, Angela L.; Kitson, Russell R. A.; Coppo, Paolo; Schmid, Siegbert; Thompson, Christopher D.; Overton, Tina L. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
How students behave and learn in the teaching laboratory is a topic of great interest in chemical education, partly in order to justify the great expense of teaching laboratories. Much effort has been put into investigating how students think, feel and physically act in these unique learning environments. One such attempt was made through the…

Calvert, Carol; Hilliam, Rachel – Open Learning, 2019
Across the Higher Education (HE) sector student feedback is used to feed into university processes and guide decision making. In this study, data gathered allowed the authors to investigate a hitherto neglected, but important, cohort of successful students -- those who succeeded when all the odds were stacked against them. The identified group of…

Sin, I Lin; Leung, Maggi W. H.; Waters, Johanna L. – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2019
This paper reveals the complex diversity that underpins ostensibly similar transnational education programmes (TNE), through a comparison of UK TNE in Malaysia and Hong Kong. It draws on data from two different yet cognate studies on the role of UK universities in delivering higher education in Asia. Some fine-grained and informative differences…

Goodyear, Victoria A.; Kerner, Charlotte; Quennerstedt, Mikael – Sport, Education and Society, 2019
An international evidence-base demonstrates that healthy lifestyle digital technologies, like exergames, health-related mobile applications ('apps') and wearable health devices are being used more and more within educational settings. Despite this, there is a lack of in-depth empirical evidence on young people's experiences and uses of healthy…

Helfaya, Akrum – Accounting Education, 2019
Both assessment and feedback have a vital impact on students' learning. Using computer-based assessment (CBA) with constructive and prompt computer-based feedback (CBF) reduces the attainment gap of the new generation of digital students. Action research methodology was employed to explore students' view of utilising CBA and/or CBF in teaching and…

Coates, Janine K.; Pimlott-Wilson, Helena – British Educational Research Journal, 2019
Children's outdoor play is declining, despite clear links between play, learning and development. Alternative learning initiatives which provide children with a diversity of play opportunities, including the chance to play outdoors, are therefore needed. One such programme, Forest School, is increasing in popularity in the UK and internationally,…
