Sieckelinck, Stijn; Kaulingfreks, Femke; De Winter, Micha – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2015
This study questions whether the perspectives of security and intelligence serve educators well enough in the early stages of radicalisation.

Griese, Birgit; Lehmann, Malte; Roesken-Winter, Bettina – International Journal of STEM Education, 2015
Background: Learning strategies are considered a key aspect for academic performance not only for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students.

de Winter, J. C .F. – Practical Assessment, Research & Evaluation, 2013
Researchers occasionally have to work with an extremely small sample size, defined herein as "N" less than or equal to 5. Some methodologists have cautioned against using the "t"-test when the sample size is extremely small, whereas others have suggested that using the "t"-test is feasible in such a case. The present…

Winter, Richard – Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management, 2009
The relationship between values and academic identity has received scant attention in the higher education literature with some notable exceptions (Churchman, 2006; Harley, 2002; Henkel, 2005).

Winter, Christine – Ethics and Education, 2009
This article enquires into the value of "concepts" as a framework for the school curriculum by questioning their contribution towards our responsibilities for thinking about the earth. I take Derrida's deconstructive reading of Plato's Timaeus to show how spaces in meaning can be revealed, and more transgressive ways of knowing invited…
