Coetzee, Stephen A.; Leith, Karin; Schmulian, Astrid – Accounting Education, 2019
The use of social media platforms to facilitate teaching and learning requires resources (hardware and Internet access) to enable active student participation.

van Kampen, Saskia – International Journal of Art & Design Education, 2019
Tacit knowledge, intuitive responses, empirical research -- how can design elevate itself as a discipline when its main forms of knowledge gathering and generation are still believed to be less valuable than those in traditional academia? Beginning design students must learn to put words to their actions, to understand their processes and to be…

Derrick, Jay – Journal of Workplace Learning, 2020
Purpose: This paper argues that the informal dimensions of practice are critical for understanding workplace learning and innovation, but have been under-theorised and under-researched. This paper aims to build on the thinking of Ellström (2010), Billett (2012) and Guile (2014) to account for the emergence of innovation through practice, and…

Carsten Conner, Laura D.; Perin, Suzanne M.; Pettit, Erin – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2018
The issue of girls' lack of connection to science has received much attention. Situated approaches such as research apprenticeships offer the chance to engage learners fully in science communities of practice and thus connect girls to science. However, such programs are often designed with lab settings, rather than field settings, in mind. This…

Kontorovich, Igor' – International Journal of Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education, 2018
This study is concerned with the reasoning that undergraduates apply when deciding whether a prompt is an example or non-example of the subspace concept. A qualitative analysis of written responses of 438 students revealed five unconventional tacit models that govern their reasoning. The models account for whether a prompt is a subset of a vector…

We present study findings that depict the natural and fractional number knowledge of one third grade student with learning disabilities (LDs) in seven experimental sessions. We utilize qualitative analysis methods to illustrate how this student evidenced her knowledge of natural number and fractions through her interactions with varied learning…

Silby, Alison; Watts, Mike – British Educational Research Journal, 2015
A key highlight of this study is generating evidence of children "making aware the unaware", making tacit knowledge explicit. The research explores the levels of awareness in thinking used by eight 7-8 year-old children when engaged in school-based genre writing tasks. The focus is on analysing children's awareness of their thought…
