Stamov Roßnagel, Christian; Fitzallen, Noleine; Lo Baido, Katrin – Higher Education Research and Development, 2021
The constructive alignment (CA) of university teaching has received considerable attention from a policy-making perspective, but much less so from a student perspective. Against this background, we explored the relationships between CA and student motivation, and between CA and perceived learning demands. Fifty-six students from two second-year…

Lake, Warren; Boyd, William; Boyd, Wendy; Hellmundt, Suzi – Australian Journal of Adult Learning, 2017
When student surveys are conducted within university environments, one outcome of feedback to the researcher is that it provides insight into the potential ways that curriculum can be modified and how content can be better delivered. However, the benefit to the current students undertaking the survey is not always evident. By modifying Biggs'…

Kulak, Verena; Newton, Genevieve; Sharma, Rahul – International Journal of Higher Education, 2017
Objective: Enhanced knowledge retention and a preference towards a deep learning approach are desirable pedagogical outcomes of case-based learning (CBL). The CBL literature is sparse with respect to these outcomes, and this is especially so in the area of biochemistry. The present study determined the effect of CBL vs. non CBL on knowledge…

Lake, Warren; Boyd, William; Boyd, Wendy – International Education Studies, 2017
The Study Process Questionnaire (SPQ) continues to be applied in a wide range of pedagogical situations. However, the question remains as to how well a researcher understands the conceptual basis behind the tool they choose. This essay provides a compact and comprehensive view of the conceptual basis for the development of the original SPQ, and…

Gaševic, Dragan; Jovanovic, Jelena; Pardo, Abelardo; Dawson, Shane – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2017
The use of analytic methods for extracting learning strategies from trace data has attracted considerable attention in the literature. However, there is a paucity of research examining any association between learning strategies extracted from trace data and responses to well-established self-report instruments and performance scores. This paper…

Lake, Warren W.; Boyd, William E.; Boyd, Wendy – International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2017
When a researcher encounters the term "learning styles," its meaning, rather than being explicitly obvious, is dependent on the tradition and therefore the context from which the term has originated. For a new researcher, in particular, it can be a confusing and potentially time consuming process to correctly identify the differences in…

Everaert, Patricia; Opdecam, Evelien; Maussen, Sophie – Accounting Education, 2017
Previous literature calls for further investigation in terms of precedents and consequences of learning approaches (deep learning and surface learning). Motivation as precedent and time spent and academic performance as consequences are addressed in this paper. The study is administered in a first-year undergraduate course. Results show that the…
