Heron, Marion; Baker, Sally; Gravett, Karen; Irwin, Evonne – Higher Education Research and Development, 2023
Although the importance of developing students' academic literacies has been well-established, academic oracy has been forgotten. There is a paucity of attention to oracy in higher education, despite the key role played by students' oral communication in academic achievement and graduate employability. This study offers a scoping review of the…

Guppy, Neil; Matzat, Uwe; Agapito, Jenilyn; Archibald, Audon; De Jaeger, Amy; Heap, Tania; Moreno, Ma Monica; Rodrigo, Maria Mercedes; Bartolic, Silvia – Higher Education Research and Development, 2023
When COVID-19 struck, higher education scrambled. Teaching and learning swerved abruptly to emergency remote instruction. For many students, the rapid refashioning of courses of instruction meant suddenly confronting new, radically different learning scenarios. We know relatively little about what enabled or constrained students' confidence in…

Griep, Yannick – Higher Education Research and Development, 2022
How does students' academic commitment develop over the course of their first term? Process research on students' early academic experiences has been scarce due to a lack of appropriate high-density-high-frequency research designs. We thus have very limited knowledge on how students become academically committed over time. Drawing on the analogue…

Supporting first-year students to adjust to their new academic environment is a crucial task in higher education. Investigating students' perceptions of fit between secondary and higher education could give higher education institutions valuable information for student feedback and support, when captured in a reliable and valid way. This study…

Mampaey, Jelle; Schtemberg, Vanja; Schijns, Jos; Huisman, Jeroen; Waeraas, Arild – Higher Education Research and Development, 2020
Most studies on branding in higher education focus on external branding or image-building towards external stakeholders such as students. Internal branding is an underexplored topic, even though it should be considered as important as external branding. Internal branding is about achieving the necessary internal support for the external brand.…

Since 2000, the faculty of Medicine at the University of Liège has integrated problem-based learning (PBL) seminars from year two to seven in its seven-year curriculum. The PBL approach has been developed to facilitate students' acquisition of reasoning capacity. This contextualized learning raises the question of the de- and re-contextualization…

Mampaey, Jelle; Huisman, Jeroen; Seeber, Marco – Higher Education Research and Development, 2015
Branding of higher education institutions (HEIs) is an expanding area of research. The existing literature mainly draws on the strategic management perspective that argues that HEIs are pressured to develop brands which differentiate them from their competitors. Past studies, however, do insufficiently take into account that most HEIs are…

Kyndt, Eva; Berghmans, Inneke; Dochy, Filip; Bulckens, Lydwin – Higher Education Research and Development, 2014
Students' workload has been recognised as a major factor in the teaching and learning environment. This paper starts by structuring the different conceptualisations of workload described in the scientific literature. Besides the traditional distinction between objective and subjective or perceived workload, a distinction between conceptualisations…
