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…

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…

La Rotta, Daniel; Usuga, Olga Cecilia; Clavijo, Valentina – Learning Environments Research, 2020
In recent years, the offer of higher-education programs under online modality has grown significantly. This situation has generated the need to evaluate the quality of these services, whose conditions and characteristics do not correspond to those of the traditional face-to-face modality. This article identifies and describes factors underlying…

Pramathevan, G. Sundari; Fraser, Barry J. – Learning Environments Research, 2020
Because there has been very little past research into gifted students' science learning environments, especially in Singapore, we selected from four established questionnaires six learning environment scales that are consistent with Van Tassel-Baska and Stambaugh's guidelines for gifted education. These scales were modified slightly to enhance…

Inda-Caro, Mercedes; Maulana, Ridwan; Fernández-García, Carmen-María; Peña-Calvo, José-Vicente; Rodríguez-Menéndez, M. del Carmen; Helms-Lorenz, Michelle – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Research consistently shows that teaching behaviour is a highly-important indicator of learning environments. Based on a teacher effectiveness model with six observable teaching behaviour domains (safe learning climate, efficient classroom management, clarity of instruction, activating teaching, teaching-learning strategies, and differentiation),…

Cipriano, Christina; Barnes, Tia N.; Pieloch, Kerrie A.; Rivers, Susan E.; Brackett, Marc – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Supportive classroom environments are associated with improved student outcomes, particularly during early adolescence (ages 10-14 years). Applying Bronfenbrenner's ecological systems theory to further investigate the microsystem of the school (Bronfenbrenner and Morris in The ecology of human development, Harvard University Press, Boston, 1998),…

Goedhart, N. S.; Blignaut-van Westrhenen, N.; Moser, C.; Zweekhorst, M. B. M. – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Higher education faces several challenges including both increased student diversity and the use of technologies. The flipped classroom approach has been proposed as a way to address some of these challenges. This study examined the effects of a flipped classroom trial conducted during a Master's course at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in the…

Clinton, Virginia; Wilson, Nicholas – Learning Environments Research, 2019
The well-known benefits of collaborative learning have prompted the development of active learning classrooms that are designed to facilitate peer interaction. Given the expense of designing active learning classrooms, examining student perceptions of these learning spaces is critical. Furthermore, it is not well understood how the type of…

Khalil, Nadine; Aldridge, Jill – Learning Environments Research, 2019
As part of major education reform efforts underway in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), teachers have been introducing cooperative teaching methods in their science classes. Given the limited research carried out in this context, we aimed to: first, provide evidence to support a modified and translated (Arabic/English) version of a well-known…

Ovbiagbonhia, A. R.; Kollöffel, Bas; den Brok, Perry – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Developing students' innovation competence is becoming increasingly important in higher education, yet few studies have actually investigated whether current learning environments are aimed at promoting this competence and whether students perceive that they have mastered this competence. This study aimed to map students' perceptions of the…
