Decrypting the Learners’ Retention Factors in Massive Open Online CoursesPant, H. V., Lohani, M. C., & Pande, J. - 2022 - Journal of Learning for Development, 9(1), 37–54
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have recently become attractive at most universities, and the number of MOOCs has risen significantly, particularly in India. Despite their popularity, previous research has revealed a low course completion rate and a scarcity of research on the factors that influences learners’ retention in MOOCs. Therefore, it is a good idea to investigate previous research to understand the factors behind the learners’ retention so that an ideal learning model can be...
Comparative Advantages of Offline Digital Technology for Remote Indigenous Classrooms in Guatemala (2019-2020)Wiebe, A., Crisostomo, L. J., Perez, R. F., & Anderson, T. - 2022 - Journal of Learning for Development, 9(1), 55–72
Technology has been viewed as a means to improve the quality of education for children globally, particularly in remote and marginal communities. This study examines the comparative advantages of the use of appropriate technology (off-line servers with digital libraries connected to a classroom set of laptops) in ten intervention schools in Indigenous communities in Guatemala for one school year. The study was too short (due to pandemic restrictions) to demonstrate statistically significant...

Mixed-methods approaches to learning strategies and self-regulation in Physical Education: a literature reviewKermarrec, G., Regaieg, G., & Clayton, R. - 2022 - Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 27(2), 172–185
Introduction Students’ learning strategies and self-regulation processes are considered highly important in academic and Physical Education contexts. Educational researchers have called for mixed-method designs to investigate how students learn and not only what they learn. The aim of this literature review was to analyze the use of mixed-method designs in self-regulated learning research in a physical education setting.Methods The following databases were searched for relevant articles:...

Student Learning Outcomes Assessment in Higher Education and in Academic Libraries: A Review of the LiteratureGoss, H. - 2022 - The Journal of Academic Librarianship, 48(2), 102485
Conducting effective assessment toward evaluating student learning outcomes (SLO) is a difficult and complex process for all higher education professionals. University-level conversations are increasingly centered on student learning outcomes as they pertain to issues such as students' skills competence, continuous improvement, retention, etc. In response to the increasing demand for units on campus (including academic libraries) to contribute to these conversations, an understanding of how...
A systematic mapping review of augmented reality applications to support STEM learning in higher educationMystakidis, S., Christopoulos, A., & Pellas, N. - 2022 - Education and Information Technologies, 27(2), 1883–1927
While there is an increasing interest in Augmented Reality (AR) technologies in Primary and Secondary (K-12) Education, its application in Higher Education (HE) is still an emerging trend. This study reports findings from a systematic mapping review, based on a total of forty-five (n = 45) articles published in international peer-reviewed journals from 2010 to 2020, after evaluating the use of AR applications that support Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects’...
Management Accounting and Control in Higher Education Institutions: A Systematic Literature ReviewVale, J., Amaral, J., Abrantes, L., … Silva, R. - 2022 - Administrative Sciences, 12(1), 14
The new public management reforms have led to significant changes in higher education institutions (HEIs) regarding the management accounting and control (MAC) of these organizations. Therefore, this paper provides an overview of the main studies on MAC in these types of organizations through a systematic literature review (SLR). The PRISMA guidelines were followed, and data were collected from the Web of Science and Scopus databases. The final sample encompassed 50 articles, published...
Cross-Border Higher Education and Quality Assurance. Results from a Systematic Literature ReviewCarvalho, N., Rosa, M. J., & Amaral, A. - 2022 - Journal of Studies in International Education, 10283153221076900
Internationalisation has gained prominence in debates on higher education and can be analysed from different perspectives, including cross-border higher education. Cross-border higher education entails relevant challenges, namely regarding its quality. This paper intends to discuss, based on a literature review, the link between cross-border higher education and quality assurance, namely the role quality assurance may have in contributing to a quality cross-border educational offer. 79...
Improv Theater and Whiteness in Education: A Systematic Literature ReviewTanner, S. J., & McCloskey, A. - 2022 - Review of Educational Research, 00346543221076885
Improv theater has expanded beyond a popular American form of entertainment into an educational experience for students and teachers. It may be difficult to imagine that an interactive, joyful, and collaborative improv workshop might be harmful, but our own experiences as professional improvisers led us to observe that even well-intentioned, antiracist improv theater interventions tend to reflect Whiteness more than democratic values. We investigate this observation through a systematic...
College-Level Sex Education Courses: A Systematic Literature ReviewManning-Ouellette, A., & Shikongo-Asino, J. - 2022 - American Journal of Sexuality Education, 0(0), 1–26
Understanding college-level sex education can help campus stakeholders understand student knowledge, inform policies, and influences on culture. Although there is a large amount of research on sexual health programming, little is known about the types of sex education curriculum on college campuses. This systematic literature review evaluates the breadth of postsecondary sex education research over the last 10 years. Three sex education course themes indicate research spans the following...

A systematic literature review to identify evidence-based principles to improve online environmental educationMerritt, E. G., Stern, M. J., Powell, R. B., & Frensley, B. T. - 2022 - Environmental Education Research, 0(0), 1–21
Many environmental educators shifted to online programs in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. We conducted a systematic literature review to identify program characteristics from digital environmental education experiences that are associated with one or more elements of environmental literacy. After reviewing 153 candidate articles, 32 articles that evaluated 47 diverse programs met our selection criteria. For each of these programs, we systematically coded the articles to identify guiding...

The effects of ventilation and temperature on sleep quality and next-day work performance: pilot measurements in a climate chamberFan, X., Shao, H., Sakamoto, M., … Wargocki, P. - 2022 - Building and Environment, 209, 108666
Ten healthy young adults slept one by one in a specially designed and constructed sleep capsule located in a climate chamber at two temperatures (24 °C and 28 °C) and two ventilation rates that ensured that the resulting CO2 concentrations were 800 and 1700 ppm. Subjectively rated sleep quality was reduced at 28 °C and reduced ventilation, while sleep onset latency was longer under these conditions. Sleep efficiency was lower at 28 °C. Subjectively rated fatigue and sleepiness decreased...

Wheels of Change: Transforming Girls’ Lives with Bicycles (No. 15076; IZA Discussion Papers)Fiala, N., Garcia-Hernandez, A., Narula, K., & Prakash, N. - 2022 - Institute of Labor Economics (IZA)
Reducing the gender gap in education is a primary goal for many countries. Two major challenges for many girls are the distance to school and their safety when commuting to school. In Zambia, we studied the impact of providing a bicycle to a school-going girl who lives more than 3 km from the school. We randomized whether a girl received a bicycle with a small cost to her family to cover replacement parts, a bicycle where these costs are covered by the program, and therefore is zero cost to...
