Gravett, Karen; Kinchin, Ian M. – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2021

Rosman, Tom; Mayer, Anne-Kathrin; Leichner, Nikolas; Krampen, Günter – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
The transition to higher education is a topic of concern for educators around the world. In fact, the shift to a more competitive educational environment can negatively impact students' academic self-concept, which, in turn, might lead to lower persistence and less adaptive educational decisions. To examine how psychology students adapt to the…

Impostor phenomenon (IP) refers to an overwhelming feeling of intellectual fraudulence and affects individuals across a number of fields.

Donovan, Christina; Erskine-Shaw, Marianne – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
It has been well documented in research that students from so-called 'non-traditional' backgrounds can experience significant difficulty in accessing higher education, in part due to a lack of cultural capital. This is further reinforced by 'invisible pedagogic practices' such as 'critical analysis', 'structure' and 'argument', which uphold the…

This narrative study investigated identity, agency and emotions, amongst an under-researched academic group -- those without PhDs with primary responsibility for teaching, who are also expected to do research. In this interview-based paper, we examine the experience of such Finnish academics in a research-intensive university. Thematic and then…

Tsang, Tiffany Lee – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Some scholars speculate that humanities education, as compared to STEM education, may be better able to provide students with the most in-demand twenty-first century workplace skill: innovation.

Meehan, Catherine; Howells, Kristy – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Previous research that evaluated first year students' transition into university found that the values of 'being, belonging and becoming' were important in particular within the first few months and within the first year of university. From our previous work, we reported that three things matter to students: the academic staff they work with, the…
