  • The creation of a nudging protocol to support online student engagement in
           higher education

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Alice Brown, Jill Lawrence, Marita Basson, Megan Axelsen, Petrea Redmond, Joanna Turner, Suzanne Maloney, Linda Galligan
      Abstract: Active Learning in Higher Education, Ahead of Print.
      Combining nudge theory with learning analytics, ‘nudge analytics’, is a relatively recent phenomenon in the educational context. Used, for example, to address such issues as concerns with student (dis)engagement, nudging students to take certain action or to change a behaviour towards active learning, can make a difference. However, knowing who to nudge, how to nudge or when to nudge can be a challenge. Providing students with strategic, sensitive nudges that help to move them forward is almost an art form. It requires not only technical skills to use appropriate software and interpret data, but careful consideration of what to say and how to say it. In this article a nudge protocol is presented that can be used in online courses to encourage student engagement with key course resources that are integral to supporting their learning.

  • Students’ perception of written, audio, video and face-to-face
           reflective approaches for holistic competency development

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Cecilia KY Chan, Hannah YH Wong
      Abstract: Active Learning in Higher Education, Ahead of Print.
      Reflection has been increasingly used to enhance student development in higher education, in both undergraduate and postgraduate studies. Learner autonomy is essential on reflection, particularly on how learners interpret their learning experiences. The learner has to take initiatives in making meaning of their learning by examining their experiences, and purposefully exploring their learning. Reflection is a key component in active learning as students actively engage in the process of thinking about what they have learnt or experienced. Mezirow highlighted how reflection can mean many things, including awareness of a perception, thought, feeling, intention and action, taking something into consideration or simply imagining alternatives. And there are also multiple approaches to embracing reflection today, such as reflective essays, videos and online blogs, where reflective processes and approaches may differ particularly in relation to technological adoption. In a learning environment, reflective approaches are adopted with the aim for learners to transfer knowledge and experiences to practice. However, there is scarce literature on student perception of the different reflective approaches. The present paper therefore examines student perspectives on four different reflective approaches and how these different approaches are applied within the context of higher education. The four approaches chosen are written, audio, video and face-to-face based on current literature on how reflection is documented or presented in education) and the integration of the concept of multimodality.

  • Helping higher education students succeed: An examination of student
           attributes and academic grade performance

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jacalyn M Flom, Karen Y Green, Steven Wallace
      Abstract: Active Learning in Higher Education, Ahead of Print.
      Academic grade performance can be influenced by individual attributes, including motivation, attitudes, and beliefs. These attributes can be manifested by current events, such as technology or world events. Through a survey-based study using validated measures coupled with student grade performance at three instances during their tenure in higher education, we document that attributes common to current students influence academic grade performance differently for higher versus lower performers. Among other findings, we identify that higher performing students’ grade performance is positively affected by the attributes: fear of punishment and distributive justice; while lower performing students’ grades were not affected by those attributes. We provide practical recommendations for faculty to help influence attributes in order to potentially improve academic grade performance. Indeed, this study has important implications for those involved in fostering student success.

  • Self-assessment and what happens over time: Student and staff
           perspectives, expectations and outcomes

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Shane McIver, Berni Murphy
      Abstract: Active Learning in Higher Education, Ahead of Print.
      Multiple benefits have been attributed to self-assessment and its ability to help develop evaluative judgement among learners. However, student and staff perceptions and what to expect throughout the self-assessment process deserves further scrutiny, particularly at the postgraduate level. To understand how students engage with self-assessment as a new skill, this study examined the experiential observations among postgraduate students and the teaching staff who implemented a self-assessment intervention designed to improve assessment and feedback procedures. Students were invited to self-assess their own written assignments prior to submission. Markers subsequently graded the work, and to provide a useful comparison, incorporated comments regarding the students’ own self-assessment within the feedback. Students from two postgraduate units subsequently completed an online survey (n = 42) describing their impressions and insights regarding the self-assessment process. To expand upon survey findings, six (n = 6) were randomly selected to participate in in-depths interviews. Teaching staff were invited to participate in separate interviews (n = 5). Self-assessment triggered critical thinking and reflection among students and staff alike in different and specific ways. Inductive thematic analysis identified key domains relevant to both cohorts with multiple sub-themes. These related to (a) the ways self-assessment challenged habitual approaches to assessment tasks, (b) the capacity for providing and receiving increasingly meaningful feedback and (c) the need for initial teaching support and resources for ongoing guidance. Educators considering embedding self-assessment will find insights arising from the results useful for unit planning and future assessment design.

  • Online learning in the time of the COVID-19 crisis: Implications for the
           self-regulated learning of university design students

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Tsai-Yun Mou
      Abstract: Active Learning in Higher Education, Ahead of Print.
      This study investigated the intervention of a weekly learning diary on design students’ self-regulated learning in an online learning environment. A total of 54 undergraduate students from an intermediate and an advanced course respectively participated in this study. In a 7-week period of online learning, the students had to complete a course project on their own. Synchronous online learning with the Microsoft Teams program was adopted for students to have real-time learning as well as recordings for after-class reviewing. The results revealed that the structured weekly diary was helpful for the students’ goal setting, time management, self-monitoring, and self-evaluation. Students with clear strategies of time management mostly had better performance. The students had an upward trend of self-monitoring and self-evaluation. Regarding their self-efficacy, the freshman class did not change greatly over time but the senior class steadily built up confidence in online learning and self-regulated learning. Nevertheless, the process and experiences of online self-regulated learning with the intervention of the learning diary influenced the design students to a certain degree.

  • The impact of team-based learning on students’ perceptions of
           classroom community

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Christopher W Parrish, Sarah K Guffey, David S Williams
      Abstract: Active Learning in Higher Education, Ahead of Print.
      Developing a sense of classroom community is important in promoting course satisfaction and in helping students overcome feelings of disconnectedness, especially in online courses. When considering the various strategies identified as contributing to a sense of classroom community, instructors likely need support in which strategies and technology tools to select, as well as how to implement those strategies. This support may be especially needed for instructors seeking to translate community building practices in face-to-face settings to their online courses. Team-based learning might be used to foster a sense of classroom community among students in both face-to-face and online courses. An embedded mixed methods design was used to determine if and how students’ perceptions of classroom community varied between method of course delivery (face-to-face or online) and course format (non-TBL or TBL). The results showed whether students in face-to-face courses (non-TBL and TBL) reported a stronger sense of classroom community than those students in online courses (non-TBL and TBL). The results also revealed how students in TBL courses (face-to-face and online) described their sense of connectedness to their instructor and peers compared to those in non-TBL courses.

  • To cheat or not to cheat' An investigation into the ethical behaviors
           of generation Z

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jacalyn Flom, Karen Green, Steven Wallace
      Abstract: Active Learning in Higher Education, Ahead of Print.
      Cheating in higher education has numerous negative implications, including degrading program reputations, inflating student retention rates, and cultivating poor ethical practices, all of which have implications for what students do in the workplace after graduation. Therefore, by understanding the current student population, Generation Z, it is argued that faculty are better equipped to combat cheating behaviors. Grounded in the Theory of Planned Behavior and Deterrence Theory, this study examines factors that faculty can influence, in particular, assignment controls to deter cheating and types of assignments given. Generation Z students indicated that their perceptions of faculty’s use of assignment controls increased their perception of getting caught, which, in turn, decreased cheating intentions. Students were more likely to cheat on coursework over written assignments and examinations. Furthermore, assignment controls create the greatest decrease in coursework cheating. This study has important implications for those involved in minimizing cheating opportunities.

      Authors: Slaviša Radović, Olga Firssova, Hans GK Hummel, Marjan Vermeulen
      Abstract: Active Learning in Higher Education, Ahead of Print.
      The importance of reflection during learning process is widely recognized. Drawing on the literature, this article presents a study where students were stimulated to reflect during experiential learning, in order to both re- and de- contextualize their knowledge. We describe how different levels of prompted reflection can be related to academic performance and perceptions of the learning process. We found positive relationships between prompting reflection and the academic performance. It is therefore argued that prompting reflection leads to higher levels of reflection and better performance in writing. The results also show that higher levels of reflection do not have to diminish students’ motivation, perception of usefulness, interest and enjoyment during learning. Finally, the results reveal needs for encouraging more collaborative reflection during learning.

  • Communities of practice or communicative rationality' A study of
           autonomous peer assisted learning

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Chitra Jayathilake, Mark Huxham
      Abstract: Active Learning in Higher Education, Ahead of Print.
      Defined as ‘networks of learning relationships among students and significant others’, peer assisted learning takes a bewildering array of forms in higher education. A useful way to conceptualise these is to draw from ideas of communities of practice and communicative rationality, with the degree of student autonomy a third key element. We illustrate this approach with a study of Kuppi, an example of peer assisted learning initiated and organised entirely by students. We interviewed undergraduate participants from six state universities in Sri Lanka and found strong support for this model of peer assisted learning from student learners and student tutors. These classes are characterised by informality and discussion, flexibility in timing and location and a focus on assessments. Students determine the content and who teaches, whilst tutors give their time without payment, out of fraternity and to improve their own learning and skills. The theory of communicative rationality helped explain much of the attraction of this form of peer assisted learning. There was evidence for a strong community of practice; however apart from peer tutors aspiring to become academics, this involved mostly reinforcement of student identity rather than transformation into emerging roles. The high levels of engagement and student autonomy shown by Kuppi challenge suggestions that peer assisted learning must be organised by tutors if it is to be effective.

      Authors: Eseta Tualaulelei, Katie Burke, Melissa Fanshawe, Cathy Cameron
      Abstract: Active Learning in Higher Education, Ahead of Print.
      Online learning has been widely adopted in higher education but there is a need to better understand the nature of student engagement with online courses. For example, there are questions about whether students engage with courses as educators intend and what features of online courses engage students to enhance learning. Bringing together student and educator perspectives, this article reports on a study that identified ‘pedagogical touchpoints’ – opportunities within online courses for student engagement – to ascertain whether a better understanding of these could improve online course design and student engagement. Data were collected across three undergraduate online courses. Data analysis produced three key findings: mapping pedagogical touchpoints against dimensions of engagement reveals patterns that may inform enhanced course design, students’ engagement with pedagogical touchpoints varies according to their learning needs and desires, and mapping pedagogical touchpoints can inform course design at both conceptual and practical levels. Discussion of the findings highlights that purposeful design of online courses, including strategic planning for pedagogical touchpoints, can maximise the potential for student engagement and consequent learning.

      Abstract: Active Learning in Higher Education, Ahead of Print.
      Within higher education, students and institutions are increasingly moving towards blended components and fully online learning coursework. Best practice online pedagogy is understood to be student-centred with a strong emphasis on social learning through collaboration. The social aspect supports frequency of engagement while collaborative activity supports cognitive engagement. Research that guides online pedagogy draws substantially from studies identifying type and frequency of students’ cognitive engagement, usually along a continuum but without the nuance of social learning. To build on that and to identify profiles of cognitive-social engagement, this study examined the content of 3,855 student posts from one course within a chat-based platform. The findings suggested six student engagement types: lurk, superficial, task, respond, expand, create. These types were then further examined along two continuums of complexity and intensity of engagement. The results present a new typology of cognitive-social learning engagement defined by four profiles: bench sitter, hustler, striker, champion. The typology was purposely fashioned using team-play acronyms to build a useable language for educators to recognise student engagement profiles and to guide learning design in social spaces online.

      Abstract: Active Learning in Higher Education, Ahead of Print.
      Constructive alignment is often promoted as a principle to enhance the quality of learning but the student perspective has often been neglected when exploring its influence on student learning. There is therefore a need to further explore how students’ experiences of the different elements of constructive alignment influence the approach to learning they adopt. Student perceptions and their approaches to learning were analysed. The results show that different elements of constructive alignment had a clear role in guiding student learning. The teaching and assessment related factors appeared to play a crucial role in guiding student learning and studying. Teaching and assessment that required students’ active involvement clearly encouraged students to adopt a deep approach to learning whereas the opposite was true for more traditionally organised courses. The intended learning outcomes did not seem to influence student learning much. The results also imply that the key is to find an optimal level of challenge to support student learning and studying. The study deepens our understanding of the importance and influence of constructively aligned teaching to students’ learning processes.
