Finkielsztein, Mariusz – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
Although in recent years, researchers have shown increasing interest in achievement-related emotions, academic boredom included, still the vast majority of the studies that have been carried out on the issue, so far, employed solely or primarily quantitative methods, were largely confined to the field of psychology and were conducted in a limited…

Rivera Munoz, Claudia A.; Baik, Chi; Lodge, Jason M. – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
The first year of university is often considered challenging and difficult for students who are adjusting to different academic and social demands.

Trinidad, Jose Eos – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020

This mixed methods study thus focuses on investigating what engages students in HE through the lens of self-determination theory (SDT), in order to better understand the internal processes of engagement in…
