I. Zouaoui; M. J. Drolet; C. Briand – Higher Education Research and Development, 2024
Over the past two decades, there has been a growing interest in the role of universities in developing generic skills, in addition to disciplinary ones, to help students adapt to a changing workplace. The need to develop these skills is particularly critical for healthcare students who must face challenges in health systems. This scoping study,…

Sam Elkington; Lydia Arnold; Edd Pitt; Carmen Tomas – Higher Education Research and Development, 2024
The global pandemic prompted universities to rethink how assessment might be reconfigured to better support student learning across different modes of delivery resulting in unprecedented, large-scale, and rapid institutional change. Significantly, there has been a dearth of empirical studies examining the nuances of staff experiences of how they…

Shelley L. Craig; Ashley S. Brooks; Andrew D. Eaton; Kaitrin Doll; Ignacio Lozano-Verduzco; Nelson Pang; Lauren B. McInroy; Daragh T. McDermott – Higher Education Research and Development, 2024
Specialized research training is a key component of graduate education, yet sexual and gender diverse (SGD) emerging scholars may not receive quality training and networking opportunities at their home institutions. International and interdisciplinary trainings by SGD scholars may develop research competence and academic networks, but few such…

Lomer, Sylvie; Mittelmeier, Jenna; Courtney, Steve – Higher Education Research and Development, 2023
Although internationalisation underpins many practices in higher education, its adopted approaches can be uneven between institutions and create ambiguous conceptualisations of how it is enacted in practice. Therefore, a whole-sector analysis can provide insight into whether spaces exist for new and innovative approaches to internationalisation,…

Boud, David; Costley, Carol; Cranfield, Steven; Desai, Jeenal; Nikolou-Walker, Elda; Nottingham, Paula; Wilson, Dilys – Higher Education Research and Development, 2023
Work-integrated learning (WIL) is proliferating in university courses across many countries. Like many educational practices, students' experience of it is shaped by the assessment processes adopted. Does assessment support or inhibit what WIL seeks to foster? To explore how students experience assessment in WIL, a small-scale investigation was…

Xu, Xing; Peng, Jing; Xia, Yunni; Zhang, Rui – Higher Education Research and Development, 2023
Despite an extensive body of literature scrutinising international students' short-term and long-term mobility experiences, little is known about the connection between the two. To address this gap, this study looks into the perception of a group of Chinese international students on how participation in their short-term mobility (STM) experience…

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…

Brewster, Liz; Cox, Andrew M. – Higher Education Research and Development, 2023
As concerns about student mental health have increased, policy aims have moved towards a 'whole-university' approach. The 2017 Universities UK #Stepchange framework made this principle a formal part of policy initiatives and legitimises it via its calls for action. The policy distributes responsibility for mental health support across the…

Knight, Eric; Mitchell, Vincent – Higher Education Research and Development, 2023
Recent discourse about the impact of university research has focused on "what" research impact is and less on "how" it manifests. To explore these two questions, we draw on knowledge theory and build on the distinction between explicit knowledge and tacit knowledge. We propose that tacit knowledge and knowing are necessary…

Skakni, I.; Maggiori, C.; Masdonati, J.; Akkermans, J. – Higher Education Research and Development, 2023
This study examines the extent to which career competencies (knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to manage one's own work and learning experiences to achieve the desired career progression) are prevalent amongst early career researchers (ECRs). We adapted the Career Competencies Questionnaire [Akkermans, J., Brenninkmeijer, V., Huibers, H.,…

Saida Affouneh; Katherine Wimpenny; Dimitar Angelov; Soheil Salha; Zuheir N. Khlaif; Dana Yaseen – Higher Education Research and Development, 2023
Research practices in Arab universities, especially the use of qualitative methods, tend to fall behind international standards of excellence; hence, the relatively small number of qualitative journal articles published by Arab academics. Conducting research in Palestine is particularly problematic due to the continued Israeli occupation and its…

Boden, Rebecca; Rowlands, Julie – Higher Education Research and Development, 2022
There is a long-running cyclical public debate in the UK and Australia about the level of vice-chancellors' remuneration in publicly funded universities. Whilst governments may promise greater oversight, little appears to change. Similar trends are emerging in some other European countries. This article critically considers the determination of…

Henderson, Holly – Higher Education Research and Development, 2022
Due to the unequal geographical distribution of HE institutions in many national HE systems, living in a rural or remote area and attending HE can be mutually exclusive. The implication is that those who remain in a rural area beyond school age do not study at the undergraduate level. In discussions of rural stayers, HE is therefore understood as…

As decolonization?of the curriculum in higher education (HE) gains traction, academics?may question?their positionality and role as actors in the field. The concept of decolonization is contentious, but primarily focuses on uncentering the?Western?filter through which the world is viewed both socially and academically. Just as Gavin Sanderson has…

Wong, Billy; Chiu, Yuan-Li Tiffany; Copsey-Blake, Meggie; Nikolopoulou, Myrto – Higher Education Research and Development, 2022
The higher education market has prompted universities to justify their value and worth, especially to students. In Australia, New Zealand and the UK, it is increasingly common for universities to advertise their vision to prospective students, through Graduate Attributes, and showcase the sets of skills and competencies their graduates would…
