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 Teacher-centred TLEs have been replaced by student-centred ones where the teachers' approaches to teaching are more learning- than content-focused.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.

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…

Öhrstedt, Maria; Lindfors, Petra – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Students' ways of approaching their studies influence their academic outcomes. Expecting high grades and having the skills to steer learning activities towards assessment demands seem to be important components of academic success. However, our knowledge about students' capacity to predict academic achievement is limited. Focusing on…

Murtagh, Lisa – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
This paper explores the lived realities of parent-trainee-teachers (parent-trainees), based on the theoretical concept of 'othering'. Othering practices can serve to reinforce and reproduce positions of domination and subordination. As such, those who are 'othered' often experience marginalisation, decreased opportunities and exclusion. This paper…

Gaus, Nurdiana; Tang, Mahmud; Akil, Mansur – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
This article examines the complexity and multiplicity of perspectives in studying organisational culture in higher education settings.

Frempong, Irene; Spence, William – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Many studies have investigated university students' attitudes to people with mental disorder (PMD) but most have used medical student participants. No Scottish studies were found on this topic where students of a broad range of subjects had participated. A mixed methods research design was employed where the topic was qualitatively explored (n =…

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…

Younger, Kirsty; Gascoine, Louise; Menzies, Victoria; Torgerson, Carole – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Widening participation (WP) in higher education (HE) is an increasingly important policy issue, with interventions to increase participation from minority ethnic, low-income and other under-represented groups undertaken in HE sectors in many countries. In the UK there is a large amount of WP activity but a lack of robust evidence of its…

Goodchild, Allyson – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
The transition into higher education is a critical time for all students. A positive early experience provides a strong foundation for future academic success whilst a negative experience can be destabilising for a new learner. To date, research has primarily focused on full-time undergraduates in order to explain the reasons for high attrition…
