In recent times, there has been a strong focus on moving university teaching away from a so-called 'instructivist', lecture-centred mode, in which the focus is on what teachers are doing, towards a more student-centred 'constructivist' approach, centred on active learning and students' own constructions of knowledge. This paper considers the…

McAlpine, Lynn; Skakni, Isabelle; Pyhältö, Kirsi – Studies in Higher Education, 2022
Prior studies have reported high levels of PhD stress resulting in exhaustion and cynicism related to negative institutional factors.

We drew on exhaustion, cynicism, life-work relation scales and free-write…
