Tobin, Kenneth – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
I begin with a review of our research on meditation, mindfulness, expressed emotions, and physiological variability while teaching. Then, through the theoretical lenses of polyvagal theory, I examine an event from our ongoing research in which a teacher had very low levels of blood oxygenation. Apparently, her body switched from parasympathetic to…

Powietrzynska, Malgorzata; Noble, Linda – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
In the context of the United States, we provide our rationale for infusing mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) into a graduate-level teacher education course. In our philosophy and pedagogical approach we attempt to counterbalance an individualistic, divisive, oppressive, and often dehumanising nature of education. Adopting Richard Davidson's…

Taylor, Elisabeth (Lily) – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
Alienation and moral disengagement have been described in the literature as some of the key factors for making some people more vulnerable to violent extremism.

This paper calls for ethical responsibility to manifest a holistic, embodied, and deeply relational vision of what it means to actualise fuller human flourishing than how we, humanity as a whole, are behaving currently. A thesis is presented that humanity is experiencing an arrest within the trajectory of species' psychological development and…

Tan, Michael – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
The STEM movement is a recent phenomenon receiving worldwide attention as the darling educational project for school systems and research centres.

Leber, Jasmin; Renkl, Alexander; Nückles, Matthias; Wäschle, Kristin – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
According to the model of constructive alignment, learners adjust their learning strategies to the announced assessment (backwash effect). Hence, when teaching for understanding, the assessment method should be aligned with this teaching goal to ensure that learners engage in corresponding learning strategies. A quasi-experimental field study with…

Easterday, Matthew W.; Rees Lewis, Daniel G.; Gerber, Elizabeth M. – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
Since the first descriptions of design research (DR), there have been calls to better define it to increase its rigour. Yet five uncertainties remain: (1) the processes for conducting DR, (2) how DR differs from other forms of research, (3) how DR differs from design, (4) the products of DR, and (5) why DR can answer certain research questions…

Svihla, Vanessa; Wester, Michael J.; Linn, Marcia C. – Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
This study is inspired by laboratory studies demonstrating that distributing study sessions over time better supports learning and retention than clustering sessions. We compare two implementations of a multi-day inquiry science unit: in the clustered instruction condition, students completed an inquiry unit in five consecutive class periods. In…

Teacher orchestration of the classroom is a demanding task because of the multitude of activities and the rapid pace at which these activities occur. Teachers must constantly be aware of the activities students engage in and the progress students are making, in order to be able to make informed decisions. Recent years have seen the development of…
