Here, we illustrate the potential use of digital credentials in higher education through sharing an approach that utilised digital credentials to…

The examination of a PhD thesis marks an important stage in the PhD student journey. Here, the student's research, thinking and writing are assessed by experts in their field.

Soares, André Escórcio; Lopes, Miguel Pereira – Active Learning in Higher Education, 2020

García-Almeida, Desiderio Juan; Cabrera-Nuez, María Teresa – Active Learning in Higher Education, 2020
Cooperative learning techniques in teaching activities are becoming increasingly popular. Many studies have documented the benefits of these techniques, but fewer have analysed the factors affecting students' achievement. One of those factors could be the student's proactivity, since cooperative techniques require active involvement of students.…

McQueen, Heather A.; McMillan, Craig – Active Learning in Higher Education, 2020
Active learning exercises engage students during lectures, but often fail to take account of the individual learning position of each student. The 'quecture' is a partially flipped lecture that incorporates students posing their own questions (quecture questions), discussing them during lectures and revisiting them later. These interactive…

Paying attention to the characteristics of flipped learning, the purpose of…

du Rocher, Andrew R. – Active Learning in Higher Education, 2020
Active learning strategies, goals, values, self-efficacy and thus study motivation are all thought to affect the depth of student engagement with their work. Plagiarism is a common problem and must reflect a shallow level of student engagement. Cognitive perspectives on learning and teaching should consider how variations in attentional control…

The transition to university, while a time of growth, can also be difficult for many students, with declines in psychosocial well-being common. Specific stressors can include both those related to academics and those related to life transitions during this time, like moving out or being away from one's family. Understanding the factors that can…

Resilience is a multifaceted concept but, in the context of learning, it can best be thought of as an individual's capacity to create and maximise opportunities as well as responding positively to setbacks and challenges. Developing students' resilience is becoming increasingly important. Research has shown resilience links to attainment,…

Derounian, James Garo – Active Learning in Higher Education, 2020
Change and exploration offer students and staff the opportunity to positively embrace use of mobile devices in higher education teaching, so that the much-vaunted pursuit of technology-based co-production of learning can become a reality. There is a need to evaluate the incidence and effect of the use of mobile devices in class, however, given the…
