Verslag: Seminar Kansen voor een Inclusief Hoger onderwijs – 25 mei 2016, Onderzoeksgroep, Onderwijzen en Leren in Diversiteit, Onderzoekslijn Studiesucces. Informatie over onderzoek en studiesucces, zie website InHolland.nl.

Op 25 mei vond het seminar ‘Kansen voor een inclusief hoger onderwijs’ plaats op de Erasmus Universiteit in Rotterdam. Het doel van het seminar was om kennis te maken met concrete, inspirerende aanpakken die de grootstedelijke context in acht nemen en die bijdragen aan meer studiesucces voor alle studenten.
Het Seminar werd georganiseerd door ECHO, Expertisecentrum Diversiteitsbeleid in samenwerking met de Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam en het Ministerie van Onderwijs, Cultuur en Wetenschap. Read More →

Abstract
Learning analytics seeks to enhance the learning process through systematic measurements of learning related data, and informing learners and teachers of the results of these measurements, so as to support the control of the learning process. Learning analytics has various sources of information, two main types being intentional and learner activity related metadata [1]. This contribution aims to provide a practical application of Shum and Crick’s theoretical framework [1] of a learning analytics infrastructure that combines learning dispositions data with data extracted from computer-based, formative assessments. The latter data component is derived from one of the educational projects of ONBETWIST, part of the SURF program ‘Testing and Test Driven Learning’. Read More →

Een verkeerde studiehouding en gebrekkige studievaardigheden zijn belangrijke oorzaken voor uitval in de propedeuse. Veel studenten denken het te redden met de studiehouding die zij ook op de middelbare school hadden. De groepsgrootte is op de middelbare school nog vaak gering. Het onderwijsaanbod is redelijk gestructureerd: er zijn huiswerkopdrachten en contacturen. Als je slim bent, haal je met weinig moeite je havo/vwo-diploma. Read More →

The successful transition of students into higher education is now generally regarded as a longer, more complex process than ‘induction’. This has received some criticism (Longden 2006) but has also been found to be beneficial in, for example, the case of institutions recognised as performing well in the retention of students from lower socio-economic groups (Yorke and Thomas 2003). We have found it useful to define our terms so that ‘induction’ (‘first-contact’ during week one) forms part of the overall ‘transition’ strategy, which we see as the longer process of acclimatisation during the first year.

Article: Starting the Conversation: An Exploratory Study of Factors That Influence Student Office Hour Use. Griffin, W. et. al., (2014). Starting the conversation: An exploratory study of factors that influence student office hour use. College Teaching, 62 (3), 94-99.

As part of best practices for increasing faculty-student interaction, higher education institutions across the country require faculty members to hold office hours. Various studies have reported factors affecting student use of office hours; however, results are unclear at best and in some cases conflicting with respect to which factors matter most, as in the case of instructor approachability. We present results from a survey of undergraduate student perceptions at a large, mid-Atlantic public research university. Read More →
