Marcelo, Carlos; Yot-Domínguez, Carmen – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019

Gazeley, Louise; Lofty, Fay; Longman, Penny; Squire, Ruth – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Practitioners working to widen participation to universities in England are an increasingly important and professionally diverse group but surprisingly absent from the academic literature and lacking in access to bespoke professional development pathways in HE.

This study examines the contribution of a range of…

Marquis, Elizabeth; Power, Emily; Yin, Melanie – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
While a large body of research considers factors enabling or constraining academic development in colleges and universities, comparatively little scholarship has considered the roles students might play in supporting positive change in staff teaching practices. This article explores one potential avenue by which such change might play out,…

Murray, Neil; Muller, Amanda – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Students entering English-medium universities frequently struggle to cope with the language demands of their degree programmes, despite having met the English language entry conditions stipulated by their receiving institutions. This can have significant repercussions for the teaching-learning process, for the student experience and for…

Björck, Ville; Johansson, Kristina – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
This study uses a Foucault-inspired discourse analysis to examine two ideas about learning which reinforce the terminology whereby theory means campus-based training and practice means work placements. The purpose is to problematise this theory-practice terminology and provide scope for a non-dualistic alternative. The ideas examined are the idea…

Uiboleht, Kaire; Karm, Mari; Postareff, Liisa – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
In recent decades, a constructivist view of learning has triggered a change in teaching-learning environments (TLEs). Teacher-centred TLEs have been replaced by student-centred ones where the teachers' approaches to teaching are more learning- than content-focused. Previous research exploring the relationship between student-centred TLEs and the…

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…

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…

Magnusson, Jenny; Zackariasson, Maria – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Independence is a concept of scholarly interest in relation to higher education, especially when it comes to undergraduate projects. At the same time independence is characterised by a certain conceptual ambiguity, and, consequently, tends to be understood differently in different academic contexts, both nationally, internationally and…
