Blichfeldt, Bodil Stilling; Smed, Karina Madsen – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
Problem-based learning (PBL) dates back to the 1970s and is inspired by the 1970s' collectivistic and practice-oriented learning ideals, emphasising dynamic learning processes without clear-cut or simple beginnings and ends.

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…

Eveland, Thomas J. – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
Although the growing attendance of first-generation college students attests to higher education's commitment to access and social mobility, by many measures students who are the first in their family to attend college are not as successful as their later-generation peers. The increasing number of first-generation students and the social,…

Trinidad, Jose Eos – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
Student-centred learning (SCL) is often understood differently by people, and the differences are even more salient in higher education, where there are some very strong advocates and vocal critics.

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…
