Baars, S.; Schellings, G. L. M.; Krishnamurthy, S.; Joore, J. P.; den Brok, P. J.; van Wesemael, P. J. V. – Learning Environments Research, 2021
In order to construct a shared body of knowledge, research involving the relationship between the psychosocial learning environment (PSLE) and the physical learning environment (PLE) needs a commonly-accepted conceptual framework. By means of a thematic literature review, we collected the main aspects of the PSLE and PLE, their definitions and…

Kokko, Anna Kristiina; Hirsto, Laura – Learning Environments Research, 2021
The aim of this study was to gain a better understanding of the change from physical spaces to learning environments by examining how, and through which processes, learning spaces are transformed, produced and developed. For this purpose, we used a comparative ethnography approach and collected observation material from two Finnish schools at…

Aldridge, Jill M.; McChesney, Katrina – Learning Environments Research, 2021
School climates are known to be associated with a range of student outcomes (including academic, social, behavioural and affective), and much work to date has focused on gathering students' perceptions of their school climate to inform ongoing improvement efforts. However, parents and caregivers, as well as students, are also influenced by the…

Hao, Qiang; Barnes, Bradley; Jing, Mengguo – Learning Environments Research, 2021
Prior findings on the effects of active learning environments were limited by both research design and data-analysis techniques, such as lack of controls over confounding factors and misuse of statistical modeling. We (1) investigated the effects of active learning environments on student achievement and motivation and (2) overcame the limitations…

Flippin, Michelle; Clapham, Emily D.; Tutwiler, M. Shane – Learning Environments Research, 2021
The ability for students to maintain attention to classroom instruction is a critical factor for learning because loss of instructional time due to off-task behaviour has negative impacts on academic achievement. Early studies suggest that use of kinesthetic equipment in place of traditional seating in classrooms can improve student on-task…

We investigated social-cognitive outcomes for U.S. university students engaged in a supplemental small-group peer-learning program which provided a more intimate learning environment than the associated course. We surveyed 604 students taking part in such a program at the beginning and end of an academic term on social-cognitive factors related to…

Simons, Mathea; Coetzee, Stephen; Baeten, Marlies; Schmulian, Astrid – Learning Environments Research, 2020
Team teaching is a teaching model in which teachers work collaboratively in the preparation, teaching and evaluation of a course. Literature suggests that team teaching potentially provides rich and varied lessons, increased support and learning gains. However, team teaching possibly also could cause some confusion. To support the implementation…

Long, Christopher S.; Fraser, Barry J.; Sinclair, Becky – Learning Environments Research, 2020
For a sample of 367 middle-school students in the USA, learning environment criteria were used to evaluate two alternative science curriculum sequences (generalised/integrated and topic-based) and to investigate the differential effectiveness of the alternative sequences for two different ethnic groups (Caucasian and Hispanic). The six scales used…

Ghafarpour, Hajar; Moinzadeh, Ahmad – Learning Environments Research, 2020
In this study, classrooms were regarded as systems in which the teacher and students interact in context and behaviors of the teacher and students affect each other mutually in a cyclical or spiral manner. We attempted to capture nuances of interactional pattern that are not readily visible through the product-oriented approaches. To analyse…

Alansari, Mohamed; Rubie-Davies, Christine – Learning Environments Research, 2020
Although studies on, and reviews of, class climate have flourished in the past decade, little is known about how student perceptions of the learning environment are associated with student psychosocial beliefs and outcomes at the tertiary level. The purpose of this paper is to synthesise the current body of literature and describe how the class…

Bonem, Emily M.; Fedesco, Heather N.; Zissimopoulos, Angelika N. – Learning Environments Research, 2020
Higher education has seen a shift towards promoting student-centred learning. There has also been a push for identifying the 'best' teaching models and an insistence that instructors use these models, despite mixed results regarding their effectiveness. In the current paper, we compare the effects of an autonomy-supportive learning environment on…

Aldridge, Jill M.; McChesney, Katrina; Afari, Ernest – Learning Environments Research, 2020
Because adolescent life satisfaction is associated with important affective, behavioural and health-related outcomes during both adolescence and later life, strategies for promoting adolescent life satisfaction have potential social value. In the study reported in this article, associations are reported between perceptions of the school climate…
