Miller, Angie L.; Williams, Latosha M.; Silberstein, Samantha M. – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
While previous literature documents the importance of sense of belonging for a positive educational experience, much of this research is focused on students early in their college careers and incorporates a single measure of sense of belonging.

Duchatelet, Dorothy; Donche, Vincent – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
By implementing student-centred learning environments, higher education institutions aim to foster student self-efficacy and self-regulation. Previous research that focuses on how students perceive these learning environments usually does not take the differential impact of students' study motivation into account. However, the type of motivation…
