Subasinghe, Chamila T. – Journal of Technology Education, 2019
Entry-level technology studies in architecture often baffle first-year university students, and academic staff in turn tend to resist teaching foundational studies in the technology of design (ToD). ToD has often been considered "high risk," as evidenced by a high proportion of dropouts and retakes, and has been deemed the least…

Pawley, Susan; Hughes, Chris – New Directions in the Teaching of Physical Sciences, 2018
Many STEM subjects are strongly hierarchical: learning and progression depends upon threshold concepts and retained knowledge from previous study. To help progress learning, support can be offered during regular study periods, but what happens during breaks between studies? The requirement to provide continuity during study breaks is recognised as…

Jancaríková, Katerina; Jancarík, Antonín – Electronic Journal of e-Learning, 2017
PISA study has defined several key areas to be paid attention to by teachers. One of these areas is work with models. The term model can be understood very broadly, it can refer to a drawing of a chemical reaction, a plastic model, a permanent mount (taxidermy) to advanced 3D projections. Teachers are no longer confined to teaching materials and…

Miller, J. L.; Wilson, K.; Miller, J.; Enomoto, K. – Higher Education Research and Development, 2017
The use of humour in teaching and learning can be contentious, with some authors suggesting that the efficacy of humorous materials is mediated by the culture of the student. Nevertheless, humour represents a potential vehicle for the introduction of active learning in a classroom setting, as judicious use of humour may lead to a more relaxed…

Brailas, Alexios; Koskinas, Konstantinos; Alexias, George – Cogent Education, 2017
This paper focuses on the conceptual model of an academic course inspired by complexity theory. In the proposed conceptual model, the aim of teaching is to form a learning organization: a knowledge community with emergent properties that cannot be reduced to any linear combination of the properties of its parts. In this approach, the learning of…
