Khine, Myint Swe; Fraser, Barry J.; Afari, Ernest; Oo, Zeya; Kyaw, Thein Thein – Learning Environments Research, 2018
We investigated students' perceptions of their science classroom environments with the use of the What Is Happening In this Class? (WIHIC) questionnaire at the university level in Myanmar. The translated questionnaire was administered to 251 students in first-year science classes at a university. Both exploratory factor analysis and confirmatory…

Schaap, Harmen; de Bruijn, Elly – Learning Environments Research, 2018
This article focuses on the development of professional learning communities (PLCs), which are communities within schools, composed of voluntary participating teachers facilitated by school principals with a specific task to accomplish as part of a larger innovation project. Four PLCs were observed during 3 years by using questionnaires and…

Sun, Xiaojing; Mainhard, Tim; Wubbels, Theo – Learning Environments Research, 2018
Teacher-student interpersonal relationships play an important role in education. The Questionnaire on Teacher Interaction (QTI) was designed to measure students' interpersonal perceptions of their teachers. There are two Chinese versions of the QTI for student use, and that inherited the weaknesses of the previous English versions, such as items…

Mäkelä, Tiina; Helfenstein, Sacha; Lerkkanen, Marja-Kristiina; Poikkeus, Anna-Maija – Learning Environments Research, 2018
The present educational design research involved analysing Finnish upper secondary school students' participation in the improvement of their psychosocial and technology-enhanced physical learning environment (LE). It examined which LE characteristics students considered important when redesigning their LE, and whether they felt that their ideas…

De Vita, Mauro; Verschaffel, Lieven; Elen, Jan – Learning Environments Research, 2018
This research explored the stimulation of mathematics understanding and learning in an Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) environment. IWB affordances appear to be best used when mathematical tasks engage students in mathematical reasoning and when all students are involved in the discussion. The intent of this project was to design and implement,…

Pitts, Christine; Anderson, Ross; Haney, Michele – Learning Environments Research, 2018
The purpose of the current study was to estimate reliability, internal consistency and construct validity of the Measure of Instruction for Creative Engagement (MICE) instrument. The MICE uses an iterative process of evidence collection and scoring through teacher observations to determine instructional domain ratings and overall scores. The…

Pinger, Petra; Rakoczy, Katrin; Besser, Michael; Klieme, Eckhard – Learning Environments Research, 2018
Formative assessment is considered to be a promising teaching practice for promoting teaching and learning processes. The implementation of teaching practices into instruction involves intervening with a learning environment that is characterised by certain features of instructional quality. Our study aims to contribute to the understanding of…

Szlyk, Hannah Selene – Learning Environments Research, 2018
At-risk behaviours, including substance abuse, suicidal ideation and delinquency, are prevalent amongst teenage youth in high-school settings. Focusing on the academic and emotional needs of their students encourages teachers to have thoughtful interactions and be continually aware of the problems of their students. Evidence-based interventions,…

Wijnen, Marit; Loyens, Sofie M. M.; Wijnia, Lisette; Smeets, Guus; Kroeze, Maarten J.; Van der Molen, Henk T. – Learning Environments Research, 2018
In this study, a mixed-method design was employed to investigate the association between a student-centred, problem-based learning (PBL) method and law students' motivation. Self-determination theory (SDT) states that autonomous motivation, which is associated with higher academic performance, can be reached when there is fulfillment of three…

Deemer, Eric D.; Smith, Jessi L. – Learning Environments Research, 2018
The current research examined the psychometric properties and utility of a measure of college classroom environment in predicting goal-related outcomes rooted in goal contents and achievement goal theories. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses in Studies 1 and 2, respectively, yielded support for two distinct and gender-invariant classroom…

Hsu, Pei-Ling; Espinoza, Penelope – Learning Environments Research, 2018
Working with scientists has been suggested as an effective way for high-school students to learn authentic science. However, little research has involved students' perceptions of science learning environments in a university internship. This study drew on the theoretical framework of community of practice with cogenerative dialogues to design an…

Koul, Rekha B.; Fraser, Barry J.; Maynard, Nicoleta; Tade, Moses – Learning Environments Research, 2018
Because the importance of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education continues to be recognised around the world, we developed and validated an instrument to assess the learning environment and student attitudes in STEM classrooms, with a specific focus on engineering and technology (E&T) activities in primary schools.…

Roshandel, Shadi; Hudley, Cynthia – Learning Environments Research, 2018
During late childhood and early adolescence, there is a dramatic increase in cognitive skills which influences how young people begin to think about their futures. The construct of possible selves has been used to help understanding of adolescents' views of their future plans and goals by exploring their social perceptions to gain insight about…

Aldridge, Jill M.; McChesney, Katrina; Afari, Ernest – Learning Environments Research, 2018
Given that schools are, potentially, powerful sites for influencing adolescent behaviour, it is important that there is greater understanding of the psychosocial aspects of the school climate that can be leveraged for this purpose. The research reported in this article used structural equation modelling (with data from a sample of 6120 students at…

Premo, Joshua; Lamb, Richard; Cavagnetto, Andy – Learning Environments Research, 2018
A common problem in education is getting students to cooperate effectively in groups during learning. Because interdisciplinary research has established that cooperation is sensitive to specific contextual factors such as reciprocity, friendship and benefit, similar factors could be shaping student interactions in contemporary classroom…
