Vangrieken, Katrien; Boon, Anne; Dochy, Filip; Kyndt, Eva – Frontline Learning Research, 2017
The current gap between traditional team research and research focusing on non-strict teams or groups such as teacher teams hampers boundary-crossing investigations of and theorising on teamwork and collaboration. The main aim of this study includes bridging this gap by proposing a continuum-based team concept, describing the distinction between…

Kyndt, Eva; Govaerts, Natalie; Claes, Trees; De La Marche, Jens; Dochy, Filip – Studies in Continuing Education, 2013
The current research starts from the observation that low-qualified employees hold a vulnerable position on the labour market. It has been argued that learning and development can decrease this vulnerability; unfortunately research has shown that low-qualified employees participate considerably less in learning activities in comparison with…

Raes, Elisabeth; Decuyper, Stefan; Lismont, Bart; Van den Bossche, Piet; Kyndt, Eva; Demeyere, Sybille; Dochy, Filip – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2013
This article investigates when and how teams engage in team learning behaviours (TLB). More specifically, it looks into how different leadership styles facilitate TLB by influencing the social conditions that proceed them. 498 healthcare workers from 28 nursery teams filled out a questionnaire measuring the concepts leadership style, TLB, social…

Boon, Anne; Raes, Elisabeth; Kyndt, Eva; Dochy, Filip – European Journal of Training and Development, 2013
Purpose: Teams, teamwork and team learning have been the subject of many research studies over the last decades. This article aims at investigating and confirming the Team Learning Beliefs and Behaviours (TLB&B) model within a very specific population, i.e. police and firemen teams. Within this context, the paper asks whether the team's…

Baeten, Marlies; Dochy, Filip; Struyven, Katrien – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2013
Background: Research in higher education on the effects of student-centred versus lecture-based learning environments generally does not take into account the psychological need support provided in these learning environments. From a self-determination theory perspective, need support is important to study because it has been associated with…

Musso, Mariel F.; Kyndt, Eva; Cascallar, Eduardo C.; Dochy, Filip – Frontline Learning Research, 2013
Many studies have explored the contribution of different factors from diverse theoretical perspectives to the explanation of academic performance. These factors have been identified as having important implications not only for the study of learning processes, but also as tools for improving curriculum designs, tutorial systems, and students'…

Struyven, Katrien; Jacobs, Karen; Dochy, Filip – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2013
In times of teacher shortage, well-considered, goal-oriented teacher recruitment is important. An understanding of the reasons why different groups of students undertake teacher training would be useful in developing targeted campaigns. Against this background, the research question is as follows: what are the motivations prompting students to…

De Rijdt, Catherine; van der Rijt, Janine; Dochy, Filip; van der Vleuten, Cees – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2012
We compared effects of tutoring by students and by staff. In four courses in each of two consecutive first years of an undergraduate problem-based law curriculum we examined the achievements and perceptions of tutors of students taught by student and staff tutors. Achievements were measured by the results on the regular end-of-course tests. After…

Struyven, Katrien; Dochy, Filip; Janssens, Steven – Interactive Learning Environments, 2012
During lectures, some students are continuously focused and attentive, whereas others tend to be bored, jittery, or inattentive. The same might happen when students are given student-activating assignments. Some students simply love one type of instruction, whereas others tend to resent it. Moreover, it is not the context itself, but the context…

Kyndt, Eva; Dochy, Filip; Struyven, Katrien; Cascallar, Eduardo – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2011
Researchers have tried to induce a deeper approach to learning by means of student-centred learning environments. Findings did not always confirm the positive hypotheses. This has given rise to the question as to what the discouraging or encouraging factors are for inducing a deep approach to learning. The aim of this research study is to…

Struyven, Katrien; Dochy, Filip; Janssens, Steven – European Journal of Teacher Education, 2010
This study investigates the effects of teaching and learning environments on student teachers' approaches to teaching and compares a lecture-based setting to a student-activating teaching environment, in which self-discovery learning by means of authentic tasks is central. Data collection (N = 852) was obtained by a pre-test/post-test design…

Gielen, Sarah; Tops, Lies; Dochy, Filip; Onghena, Patrick; Smeets, Stijn – British Educational Research Journal, 2010
This study examines whether peer feedback can be a substitute for teacher feedback and which measures can be taken to improve its effectiveness. A pre-test post-test control group design examined the long-term learning effects of individual peer feedback and of collective teacher feedback on writing assignments in secondary education. Moreover, it…
