Day, Stephen P.; Scott-McKie, Louise; Killen, Andrew – Scottish Educational Review, 2019

Cree, Viviene E.; Christie, Hazel; Tett, Lyn – Scottish Educational Review, 2016
It is widely acknowledged that higher education in the UK is under pressure.

But…

"Successful learners" is one of the four capacities, or purposes, of "Curriculum for Excellence" (CfE).

The project was thus conducted in two parts:…
