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…

Buchanan, Denise Rosemary – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
In the United Kingdom, although one in four adults reportedly experienced mental health difficulties within a one-year period, only 25% of them received treatment for their condition. Moreover, this group of adults are underrepresented in full-time employment and education and so to discover ways which may help to counteract this imbalance, an…

Hallewell, Madeline J.; Crook, Charles – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
The PowerPoint-assisted lecture (slide-lecture) is a common lecturing approach in higher education, in spite of much criticism of its use. Its popularity is facilitated by its affordances for multimodal instructional design, e.g. text with images and speech. Little is known about the integration of different semiotic modalities within the…

Batchelor, Rachel; Pitman, Emma; Sharpington, Alex; Stock, Melissa; Cage, Eilidh – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
Student mental health is an issue of growing concern. Past research indicates that many students are not accessing the support they require, which may in part be due to issues surrounding the standards of the available services. Using a participatory framework, the current study utilised a mixed-methods design to examine student experiences of…

Jairam, Dharmananda – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
College student attrition rates remain a major concern and many students leave due to unsatisfactory academic performance. Colleges have responded by offering first-year seminars focused on study skills. There is limited research on the effectiveness of these programmes. More research is needed to assess actual student behaviours after completing…

Baker, Sally; Irwin, Evonne; Freeman, Homa – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
While there is a growing knowledge base of how students experience their transitions into and through university, little is known about how they experience the temporal dimensions of their higher education (HE) studies, particularly for culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) students. This article draws on Australian longitudinal research…

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…

Money, Julie; Nixon, Sarah; Graham, Linda – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
Entering higher education (HE) is a critical moment for many students and one in which their educational experiences may change dramatically, but are students academically prepared? From a structured and supported environment, they enter a more autonomous and independent setting and little is known about their preparedness for this transition.…

Raiden, Ani; Räisänen, Christine; Kinman, Gail – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
Academic work demands behavioural ambidexterity: the ability to simultaneously demonstrate exploration (creativity in research and/or in innovative teaching and learning practice) and exploitation (compliance with quality assurance). However, little is known about the effects of behavioural ambidexterity on the well-being of individual employees.…

Griffioen, Didi M. E. – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
Integrating professional research into higher education is supposed to intellectually benefit students. However, the literature suggests that students in different academic disciplines experience differing research opportunities. Previous studies have shown how junior students of natural sciences have less opportunity to engage in research than…

Duncan, Helen; Purcell, Catherine – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
Timed examinations continue to be a common educational assessment method employed to evaluate a student's knowledge, ability and skills in their subject area. Extra time is the most common adjustment that students with specific learning difficulties (SpLD) are granted in these exams. This adjustment aims to provide students with SpLD parity with…

Cowan, John – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
This article traces and critically analyses a personal journey in search of effective ways to promote exemplary questioning on the part of students. The article is in many ways a polemic rather than a scientific study, which emerges as much from the 1970s and the writings of Carl Rogers as from the second decade of the twenty-first century with…
