Identifying Themes for Research-Based Development of Pedagogy and Guidance in Higher Education
Jääskelä, Päivikki; Nissilä, Pia
Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, v59 n1 p24-41 2015
The high value accorded to the research-based development of education in higher education communities means that researchers in the field have an important role in determining the foci of such efforts. However, it is important to ask whether higher education research is providing answers that satisfy practical educational needs. In this study, themes in higher education research published in Finland during 2000-2008 were compared to those addressed in non-refereed writings published by higher education teachers and students. The thematic analyses, (n = 1,298) focusing on topics related to learning, studying, and their promotion revealed the need for a broader life-wide framework for developing student-centred pedagogy and guidance practices in higher education.
