Thomas, Christopher L.; Allen, Kristie – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2021
Available evidence suggests that learners' level of emotional intelligence and academic buoyancy are associated with components of behavioural and emotional engagement. Recent work has provided preliminary evidence that the relationship between emotional intelligence and student engagement is mediated by academic buoyancy. Therefore, the current…

Brown, Denise; Barry, John A.; Todd, Brenda K. – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2021
In recent years, male students at UK schools and universities have been falling behind their female peers in academic achievement. Previous studies have shown that male students are less likely than female students to seek academic help, but have not investigated the relationship between gender-typical attitudes and reluctance to seek academic…

Kim, Jeongyeon – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
As global competition has intensified in Higher Education (HE) over the past decade, HE institutions of many non-English-speaking societies have strategically concentrated on internationalisation and increased the international population of their campuses. This case study investigated non-native English-speaking international students' academic…

Gavora, Peter; Vaculíková, Jitka; Kalenda, Jan; Kálmán, Orsolya; Gombos, Péter; Swigost, Magdalena; Bontová, Andrea – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
Students' uses of metacognitive reading strategies are an important part of effective learning during university studies. Universities may place varied emphasis on the use of different strategy types, and the students employ them accordingly. A purpose of this study was to examine the use of analytic and pragmatic reading strategies by university…

Burston, Mary A. – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
A government report criticised Australian universities for low proficiency in commercialising epistemic production (research and knowledge). A critical omission was a comparable measure of academic productivity to substantiate whether underperformance correlated with the commercialisation value of research output or whether academic productivity…

Thornton, Claire; Miller, Phillip; Perry, Kelly – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
Higher education institutions (HEIs) are increasingly being measured using key performance indicators (KPIs) such as student retention, success, achievement and attendance. There is a dearth of research focusing on group dynamics within classroom settings, with very little focusing on cohesion. There is, however, evidence, in organisational and…

Reid, Matthew; Jessop, Donna C.; Miles, Eleanor – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
Poorer financial circumstances among undergraduate students predict worse academic outcomes, yet there is a lack of research examining mediators. Accordingly, the present research aimed to identify such mediating variables. In Study 1, cross-sectional data were collected from UK undergraduates (N = 516). Controlling for background variables, path…

Webb, Oliver J.; Turner, Rebecca – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
In contrast with many European nations, university students in the United Kingdom have traditionally relocated for their higher education (HE). However, with rising fees and diversification of the student body, an increasing number are remaining in their parental or own home whilst they attend a local university or commute to a HE provider. For…

Li, Jessica; Han, Seung-hyun; Fu, Shengli – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
It is a commonly accepted notion that people take different approaches in learning. Although attention has been given to learning styles as one of the determinants of learning performance, there is are limitations to the inferential approach to understanding the impact of learning styles on learning outcomes. The purpose of this study is to…

Balwant, Paul T.; Birdi, Kamal; Stephan, Ute; Topakas, Anna – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Researchers are becoming increasingly interested in the use of transformational leadership theory in higher education teaching (often referred to as transformational instructor-leadership). Much of this body of research investigates a direct association between transformational instructor-leadership and student outcomes. In the present study, we…

Holliman, Andrew J.; Sheriston, Lee; Martin, Andrew J.; Collie, Rebecca J.; Sayer, Demi – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Individual differences in 'adaptability' -- cognitive, behavioural, and emotional adjustment in the face of change, novelty, and uncertainty -- are theorised to influence students' academic achievement and course satisfaction; although the literature examining these relations in tertiary education is sparse. In the present study, first-year…

Guterman, Oz; Neuman, Ari – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Research has indicated significant disparities in the academic achievement of minority and majority groups in most Western countries. In light of the role of academic achievement as the main component of social mobility, it is important to understand the source of these differences between the majority and minority groups. The present research…

Shilo, Gila; Ragonis, Noa – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
A central issue in the design of curricula for all school levels is the development of the learners' high-order thinking skills and metacognitive skills. Among such required skills is the ability to solve problems. The literature dealing with the development of problem-solving skills is vast and primarily addresses the scientific disciplines, even…

Morrell-Scott, N. – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
The aim of this study was to gain a perspective of new members of staff who attempt to gain entry into an existing community of practice, to ascertain how this process occurs, and to explore new ways of inducting teams into established communities of practice. This research is situated, while demonstrating uniqueness, against a critique of Lave…
