Article
As decolonization of the curriculum in higher education (HE) gains traction, academics may question their positionality and role as actors in the field. The concept of decolonization is contentious, but primarily focuses on uncentering the Western filter through which the world is viewed both socially and academically. Just as Gavin Sanderson has a...

The aim of this study was to describe how teacher educators design and implement group learning activities (GLAs). We used the Group Learning Activities Instructional Design (GLAID) framework to analyse their descriptions. The GLAID framework includes eight components: (1) interaction, (2) learning objectives and outcomes, (3) assessment, (4) task...

Group Learning Activities (GLAs) are a key ingredient of course designs in higher education. Various approaches for designing GLAs have been developed, featuring different design components. However, this has not yet resulted in clear guidelines for teachers on how to design GLAs. The purpose of this thematic review is to synthesize insights from v...

The concept of Knowledge Triangle (KT) links together research, education and innovation and replaces the traditional ‘one way’ flow of knowledge, essentially from research to education, by a ‘both ways’ circular motion between all the corners of a triangle that, besides research and education, also includes innovation, the ‘poor relation’ of many...

Collaborative learning can, if designed and implemented properly, contribute to student learning outcomes and prepare them for teamwork. However, the design and implementation of collaborative learning in practice depend on beliefs of lecturers about teaching and learning in general, and collaborative learning in particular. One hundred and fifteen...

An important long-term aim of education about science and technology is to improve the overall image that people have of technology and to help them develop a well-informed attitude. Previous studies have shown that pupils in primary and secondary schools often have distorted and limited views on science and technology and that such views often go...

... The individual may feel that the risks perceived by others do not apply to him because he possesses specialised knowledge and personal resources, amounting to more outstanding entrepreneurial human capital (Janney and Dess 2006). Hensel et al. (2021) show how certain entrepreneurial qualities and business skills enhance the strategic decision-making process. Thus, the individual's ability to improve through training is taken for granted in being entrepreneurial (Kuratko and Hodgetts 1998). ...

... According to Brandon et al. (2021), intercultural learning supports students in obtaining skills that improve their employability and therefore, in the 21 st century, the provision of an opportunity for intercultural learning is essential in higher education. The international classroom provides an excellent opportunity to educate interculturally competent professionals and leaders of the future (de Hei et al., 2020). Interestingly, international encounters can occur between people of different cultural backgrounds across national borders or even within the same country (Hofstede et al., 2010). ...
... Furthermore, type 2 does not leave his or her domain and the already gained experiences in the domain might additionally supplement expertise development in the new tasks (Barnett & Koslowski, 1997;e.g., Boshuizen et al., 2020). Regarding the concepts of T-shaped expertise and the flexpert, the taxonomy differs mainly in the development from type 1 to type 3. Type 3 might actually develop expertise more quickly in the new domain since he or she already gained expertise which might be similar to the flexpert (Frie et al., 2018.). Additionally, although we did not encounter this in our sample, it cannot be ruled out that an individual develops into expertise type 3 and later goes back to being type 1. ...

With respect to research subjects, those who engage in innovative behavior include enterprise employees, 2 scientific researchers, 10 entrepreneurs, 11 teachers, 12 and students. 13 The key to innovation in colleges and universities depends upon students, and their innovative behavior determines the competitiveness of colleges and universities and even the country to a certain extent. ...
... Obviously, sometimes perceived learning outcomes are the more appropriate measure for a particular research context, and they can be an accurate representation of what students have achieved from online learning programs where complex involvement of different components is present. In addition, student self-report data also has the potential to provide useful information as learning outcomes perceived by students can also reveal their satisfaction (De Hei et al., 2018). ...
... The more levels each criterion uses, the less reliable the score will be (Jonsson & Svingby, 2007). Previous research on rubrics has shown that more reliable scores are produced with topic-specific rubrics rather than with unrestricted scores or generic rubrics (Song et al., 2016;van Helvoort et al., 2017). ...
... Pedagogical scenario for radiology education and cognitive engagement as a predictor for knowledge development In general, a scenario integrating in-class individual tasks with class-wide discussions is seen as a good alternative to lectures (Akcayir & Akcayir, 2018;De Hei, Sjoer, Admiraal, & Strijbos, 2016;Schmidt, Wagener, Smeets, Keemink, & van der Molen, 2015). An in-class pedagogical scenario was therefore developed for teaching the systematic viewing and image interpretation in undergraduate radiology education. ...
... It is worth giving more attention to the alignment of learning objectives, task characteristics, instructions and assessment with learner capacities for collaboration and cross-cultural engagement. Teachers can achieve more in creating these synergies when they investigate student profiles in advance, in order to know how much learning autonomy their course participants can handle and how complex their assignments should be in a cross-cultural environment (De Hei et al., 2016). This would help avoid situations where learners who used to work in homogeneous teams become stigmatized by the major shift to heterogeneous teamwork. ...
... As part of these expectations, policy institutions such as the European Commission and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) [European Commission, 2005;OECD, 2016a] have stressed the need to strengthen bilateral and trilateral ties between research, educational and innovation activity 1 , which they refer to as the Knowledge Triangle (KT). Although the value of linking research, education and innovation is well known, strengthening these ties has often proven challenging [Maassen, Stensaker, 2011;Sjoer et al., 2016], revealing tensions between the different tasks and institutional levels [Pinheiro et al., 2014]. These tensions are to some extent inevitable, as the logic behind, and the incentive systems of, universities' tasks differ: education is place-bound and localised in its practices and reward systems; research is primarily valued according to its contributions to the international community, whereas innovation takes many different forms, from the tangible to the tacit. ...
