Conference Paper
Developing pedagogical skills of teachers is an essential objective in teacher education. Although feedback from workplace supervisors is considered crucial for encouraging these skills in the first stages of teachers’ careers, delivering effective and just-in-time feedback is under pressure due to a teacher shortage in secondary education. Recent...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Previous studies emphasize that feedback is essential for acquiring presentation skills. However, it remains unknown whether computer-mediated delayed feedback, provided in Virtual Reality (VR) without the intervention of the teacher, impacts students’ public speaking skills. Recent technological developments allowed to convert quantitative informa...

The COVID19-Pandemic has forced educators to transform their lessons into online versions in a short period of time. This study compares teachers’ perception regarding their online teaching expectations (prior to the transition to remote teaching) and experiences (after a month of online teaching). Two surveys were completed by 200 Dutch teachers....

Feedback plays a central role in learning. Crucial to this is the nature and timing of the feedback. This experimental study explores the efficacy of immediate computer‐mediated feedback within a virtual reality environment designed to facilitate the development of pre‐university students' presentation skills. Two conditions were established to ass...

While previous studies in educational sciences emphasized the essence of feedback on developing students’ oral presentation competence, it remains questionable how innovative technologies can successfully deliver high-quality feedback on such a competence. Recent experimental studies in this field revealed the effectiveness of virtual reality (VR)...
Article
Full-text available
Although scholars emphasised the essence of feedback delivered on virtual reality-based tasks, it remains unclear whether the acquisition of students’ oral presentation skills can be enhanced by the timing of feedback. An exploratory study, recently conducted in a Dutch university, explores the potential differential impact of immediate versus dela...
Article
While previous studies have stressed the importance of feedback delivered by experts, it is unclear whether students' oral presentation competence can be fostered through innovative technology for delivering feedback. This experimental study examined the effectiveness of a virtual reality-based task, in which first-year undergraduate students pract...

Whilst the importance of online peer feedback and writing argumentative essays for students in higher education is unquestionable, there is a need for further research into whether and the extent to which female and male students differ with regard to their argumentative feedback, essay writing, and content learning in online settings. The current...

Honors programs are frequently regarded as inspiring for redesigning curricula in higher education that incorporate 21st century skills. This explorative study focuses on eliciting students’ perceptions regarding their learning gains related to these skills in honors programs. Results demonstrated high learning gains. Moreover, based on students’ i...

Purpose The purpose of this paper is to design a rubric instrument for assessing oral presentation performance in higher education and to test its validity with an expert group. Design/methodology/approach This study, using mixed methods, focuses on (1) designing a rubric by identifying assessment instruments in previous presentation research an...

Previous research revealed significant differences in the effectiveness of various feedback sources for encouraging students’ oral presentation performance. While former studies emphasised the superiority of teacher feedback, it remains unclear whether the quality of feedback actually differs between commonly used sources in higher education. There...

While previous research in higher education emphasized the essence of feedback by the teacher, the peer or the self, it remains unclear whether the acquisition of students' oral presentation competence differs depending on the feedback source. This quasi-experimental study examines the effectiveness of the feedback source on 144 first-year undergra...

Pursuit of Excellence in a Networked Society: Theoretical and Practical Approaches
Article
Full-text available
In honours programmes students and teachers often form a contact network that makes an important contribution to the development of the students. These ‘honours communities’ encourage productive interactions among students and between students, teachers and other professionals within and outside the honours programme. In the literature, little info...

Research has shown that honors programs often provide active networks of students that contribute to the development of the students’ talents (De Boer & van Eijl; van Eijl, Pilot & Wolfensberger). These contact networks are also described as “learning communities” (Wilson et al.) and “honors communities” (van Eijl, Pilot & Wolfensberger). Such comm...

In Europe, there is a growing interest in honors education, not only in the bachelor’s but also in the master’s degree. The Dutch government, for instance, is actively promoting excellence in both bachelor’s and master’s degrees through honors programs (Siriusteam). Most Dutch universities have honors programs at the bachelor’s level or are develop...

Het thema van de conferentie in 2011 is ‘Over culturen’. Culturen kennen maatschappelijk, maar zeker ook in het hoger onderwijs, vele invalshoeken. Op een diversiteit van manieren proberen we onderwijs te maken dat inspeelt op verschillende culturen in de studentengroep, dat excellentie stimuleert, dat kwaliteit heeft.

Een honoursmaster is dus een speciaal ontwikkeld programma in de masterfase voor studenten die meer kunnen en willen dan het regulier programma hun biedt. Uit een eerdere inventarisatie van Nederlandse honoursprogramma’s uit de bachelorfase in 2003 (Van Eijl et al, 2003) bleek dat de inhoud, lengte en zwaarte van de trajecten opmerkelijk divers was...

Project
The outcomes of this research project aim to support, educate and advice HE faculty (including librarians) in designing a learning environment that (effectively) fosters students’ IPS competence. The main goal is to create a pedagogically‐sound IPS teaching framework for the HE environment that (effectively) supports IPS teaching and learning. This framework will fit the new role of students as a consumer and producer of information (like in the metaliteracy model [Mackey and Jacobson, 2014, 2015]). The second goal is to develop effective interventions for developing IPS competence that can be integrated into existing HE learning environments. These interventions can concern one or more of the tree main aspects of the learning environment: learning outcomes, teaching activities, and assessment tasks. The designed interventions should align with the iterative and complex nature of the IPS process, and at least help both teacher and student to get insight into and give feedback on the whole IPS process and not only the final outcome or product. Finally, this study hopes to offer insights into the potential use of digital technologies to support IPS instruction in higher education.

Beste Bert Smeets, ik werk momenteel met anderen aan het zichtbaar maken van de relatie van honoursonderwijs en 21ste eeuwse vaardigheden. Op de Windesheim honours conference 2017 geven we een workshop: Honours programmes as a forerunner for 21st century skills. Waar bent u mee bezig? Vr. Gr. Pierre van Eijl
