  1. Differences in Research Literacy in Educational Science Depending on Study Program and University

    Groß Ophoff, Jana; Schladitz, Sandra; Wirtz, Markus
    [EN] The ability to purposefully access, reflect on, and use evidence from educational research (Educational Research Literacy, ERL) are key competencies of future professionals in educational practice. Based on the conceptual framework presented in this paper, a test instrument was developed to assess ERL, consisting of the competence facets Information Literacy, Statistical Literacy, and Evidence-based Reasoning. This contribution aims to delve deeper into the question of whether Educational Science students differ in their overall ERL proficiency depending on their study program and university. This comparison is based on a large-scale study of 1,213 Educational Science students (Teacher Training and Educational...

  2. Critical analysis and digital literacy in learning social psychology

    González-Conde, Joan; Codina, Nuria; Valenzuela, Rafael; Pestana, Jose
    [EN] This paper presents a teaching experience in social psychology learning, aimed at students’ acquisition of critical analysis and digital literacy competences at the University of Barcelona. The methodology consisted of asking each student to answer to a socially relevant question, by means of (a) identifying key underlying psychosocial processes and (b) searching for adequate keywords in scientific databases such as PsycNet and Sociological Abstracts, in order to (c) select and critically compare two relevant articles that could answer this question. The acquisition of these competences was assessed with a rubric and related questions in the final exam. Results indicated...

  3. “Walking a tight rope”- a risky narrative of transition to University

    Prevett, Pauline; Williams, Julian
    [EN] The study of the transition of young people to university necessarily confronts the semi-dependency of the lives of contemporary youth: on the one hand they remain largely economically dependent and on the other they are becoming socially independent. We therefore seek to illuminate engagement with learning as situated in the midst of semi-dependency typical of adolescence, at a time in the life-cycle when typically young people experience a strong “pull” to socialise with peers, but have not yet become fully economically and socially adult. The paper examines the consequences of this contradiction on students’ transition to university, from the...

  4. The Role of Coherent Research-Based Curricular Unit in Mediating Students’ Integrated Vision of Human Impact on the Environment

    Ghalichi, Narmin; Roehrig, Gillian
    [EN] The ongoing development of the high school ecology curricular unit presented in this proposal is a response to the new tide of educational reforms in the United States. This curricular unit represents an attempt to frame K-12 science curriculum around three dimensions: crosscutting concepts, disciplinary core ideas and scientific practices recently released in the report on a Framework for New K-12 Science Education (National Research Council, 2012). Integration of three dimensions into the development of agriculture-related curricular unit reflects complexity and logic inherent in science education facilitating deeper conceptual understanding. The development of this curricular unit takes place under...

  8. How about equality and equity in higher music education? A theoretical framework for researching quality of music teaching and learning

    Jääskeläinen, Tuula; López-Íñiguez, Guadalupe
    [EN] While quality development has an important role in higher education in Finland, its connection with equality and equity in teaching and learning music is not often mentioned. Most of the discussions about equality in education have focused on how to equalize access to and participation in education, but there are disagreements about what the very concepts of equality and equity mean in education. When striving to achieve equality in higher music education, the use of learner-centered pedagogies may promote an engaging and satisfying learning experience. We illustrate a more holistic approach in teaching and learning music by adapting the...

  9. Trends in student behavior in online courses

    Conijn, Rianne; van Zaanen, Menno
    [EN] Learning management systems provide an easy and effective means of access to educational material. Students’ access to course material is logged and the amount of interaction is assumed to be a measure of student engagement within the course. In previous research, frequencies of student activities have typically been used, but this disregards any temporal information. Here, we analyze the amount of student activity over time during courses. Based on activity data over 11 online courses, we cluster students who show similar behavior over time. This shows three different groups: a large group of students who are mostly not active,...

  10. Using COCA to Foster Students’ Use of English Collocations in Academic Writing

    Mansour, Deena
    [EN] Using Corpora in foreign language teaching is on of the very efficient ways in proposing solutions for pedagogical issues, either through adopting a corpus-based teaching approach or through using the corpus in developing material. Developing academic writing competence is a challenging pedagogical issue for English teachers as well as learners. Second language learners come across considerable challenges as they are developing their academic writing competence. One of these challenges is the use of English collocations since that learning about collocations is of a crucial importance. Hence, due to the wide variety of collocations and their different types, one of...

  11. An Action Day for First-Semester Students, fostering Self-Reflection, Networking and many other Skills

    Zehetmeier, Daniela; Thurner, Veronika; Böttcher, Axel
    [EN] Over the years, we observed that students have difficulties when moving from school to university. In order to support our first-semester students,we designed and performed an action day at the beginning of their first semester. This day is designed to create identification with the subject, to get them actively engaged, and to let students get in contact with each other in an unstressed atmosphere. Furthermore, we intend to assess students’ initial level of competences relevant for studying successfully. The first four applications achieved good results. Passive students turned to a more active attitude, as they understood that they are...

  12. Pedagogy and content evolution in cross-border higher education: Evidence from an American-Singaporean cross-border partnership

    Fisher, Dara
    [EN] Reflecting larger trends in business, economics, and communications, the field of higher education has undergone a rapid period of globalization and internationalization over the last half century. While much scholarship has been devoted to the policies and practices of cross-border higher education work, little research has examined the mechanisms by which educational practices and approaches are modified and adapted when moved across cultural contexts. This paper addresses this gap by examining the processes by which foreign and local partners adapted and modified American educational approaches to fit the needs of Singaporean students in a large-scale cross-border higher education partnership....

  13. Developing Communication Competencies Through E-Learning: The Motivating Potential of Adaptive Video Role Play

    Hiemstra, Djoerd; Zagt, Anne
    [EN] To develop competence through e-learning tools, students must be motivated to use these tools. Hence, we conducted two empirical studies to explore the motivating potential of an adaptive video role playing game (AVR) for training communication competencies. In Study 1 (N = 54), we used a within-person design to examine students’ motivation in three learning conditions: in the classroom, when playing the AVR, and when doing homework. The results showed that, relative to the homework condition, in the AVR condition students were higher in perceived competence, relatedness, intrinsic motivation, and flow. No difference between the classroom condition and the...

  15. Rubrics use and in-class feedback in higher education: Students’ perceptions and their effect on academic achievement

    Bono, Roser; Núñez-Peña, María; Suárez-Pellicioni, Macarena
    [EN] This study examines students’ views regarding two types of feedback: that obtained through rubrics and that given by the class tutor (rubrics and in-class feedback, respectively). We constructed an ad hoc questionnaire to assess students’ perceived usefulness of both types of feedback. The sample comprised 135 undergraduates from the University of Barcelona who were enrolled in a Research Designs course as part of the degree in Psychology. On almost all the questionnaire items the percentage of positive views was high for both types of feedback, although especially for in-class feedback. As for academic achievement, we observed no statistically significant...

    Kim, Hakjin; Song, Ohsung
    [EN] Korea implemented the Engineering Education Accreditation system in 2001, and it was adopted by 85 engineering colleges (out of 165) in 2015. Focusing on the Department of Materials Engineering at the University of Seoul, this study performed a time-series analysis of GPA, employment rate, and credits earned in MSC/design/major courses to compare the differences in academic achievements between accredited and non-accredited graduates. The results showed that accredited graduates had a generally higher GPA and employment rate than non-accredited students, and this can be traced to the curricula provided under the accreditation system having a positive effect on improving communication,...

  17. In Search of Reusable Educational Resources in the Web

    Steinberger, Claudia
    [EN] Nowadays there is a high demand from teachers to precisely find online learning resources that are free from copyright restrictions or publicly licensed to use, adapt and redistribute in their own courses. This paper investigates the state of the art to support teachers in this search process. Repository based strategies for dissemination of educational resources are discussed and critiqued and the added value of a semantic web approach is shown. The ontology schema.org and its suitability for semantic annotation of educational resources is introduced. Current ways and weaknesses to discover educational resources based on appropriate semantic data are presented....

  18. Autonomy-supportive learning with VaKE (Values and Knowledge Education) in teacher education. Fostering empathy and cognitive complexity.

    Weinberger, Alfred; Patry, Jean-Luc; Weyringer, Sieglinde
    [EN] The aim of this study is to examine enhanced autonomy-supportive teaching with VaKE (Values and Knowledge Education) in teacher education. VaKE is a constructivist teaching and learning approach which combines values and knowledge education, providing possibilities for autonomous learning. A quasi-experiment was applied with N = 43 pre-service teachers in an Austrian university of teacher education. The standard VaKE was compared with VaKE focusing on enhanced autonomy-supportive teaching by providing option choices. Dependent variables were the capacity to take the perspective of others (empathy) and the capacity to deal adequately with multiple sources of knowledge (cognitive complexity). The results...

  19. Freshman African engineering student perceptions on academic feedback – A case study from Digital Systems 1

    Kuriakose, Rangith
    [EN] Providing effective and quality feedback to students in higher education has been identified as an integral part of quality teaching by many researchers in the field of education. However, student perceptions vary drastically as to what they perceive academic feedback to really be. Therefore, this paper aims to present freshman engineering student perceptions of academic feedback from an African perspective. The reason for targeting this group is due to their high dropout rate in higher education in South Africa (around 60%). Quantitative data was collected from freshman engineering students enrolled for a module termed Digital Systems 1 at the...
