  • Business students’ perceptions of their readiness for higher education  studies and its correlation to academic outcome
  • 2020
  • Ingår i: Journal for advancing business education. - 2638-8065. ; 2:1, s. 74-92
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This longitudinal study explores the link between students’ ex ante (n=184) and ex post (n=113) appraisals of readiness and outcomes in a business program. Results indicate that perceived readiness does not predict outcome. GPA is the strongest predictor for native Swedish speakers but not for non-native speakers in this sample. All students felt well prepared for HE studies, whereas academic outcome in nominal time indicated many were not. One implication is that teachers need to be aware of student overconfidence and early on show what is expected of them performance wise. This is especially important for underprivileged groups.

  • Do personality traits matter? : a comparative study of student preferences for TLAs and assessment modes in two different majors
  • 2019
  • Ingår i: Teaching & Learning Inquiry. ; 7:1, s. 78-102
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • What, then, do we need to know about our students to better provide for more equitable outcomes? Who will succeed depend on many factors, and student personality traits is one factor less discussed in the engagement and First year experience literature. The aim of this study is to add to the teaching in higher education discussion by exploring how student differ regarding personality traits profile (IPIP-NEO-PI test; Goldberg, 1999), approaches to learning (R-SPQ-2F test; Biggs, Kember & Leung, 2001), and preference for teaching and learning activites and assessment modes. The on-line survey study was carried out in a small, teaching intensive Swedish university on students in a Business (n=144) and Pre-school teacher education program (n=179). Findings were that there seem to be systematic differences between the types of modes preferred, and also significant differences between the two majors regarding learning approach, motive and strategy. Findings are discussed in relation to Jarvis’ (2010) model of learning and disjuncture, Biesta’s (2005) discussion on educational relationships and risk, and Trowler’s (2008) concept of teaching and learning regimes (TLRs). There are two clear risks that teachers and curriculum developers face. First, teachers who are new or come from a different TLR may face the risk of alienating students and exposing them to extreme anxiety if using TLAs and assessment modes students are uncomfortable with and unused to. Second, teachers and curriculum developers run the risk of not challenging students enough, thus depriving them of valuable learning experiences.

  • Do personality traits matter? A comparative study of student preferences for teaching and learning activities and assessment modes in two different majors
  • 2019
  • Ingår i: Teaching and Learning Inquiry. - : Indiana University Press. - 2167-4779. ; 7:1, s. 78-102
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • What do we need to know about our students to better provide for more equitable outcomes? Who will succeed depends on many factors, and student personality traits constitute one factor that has received less attention in the engagement and teaching literature. The aim of the present study is to add to discussions on teaching in higher education by exploring how students differ on personality trait profiles (IPIP-NEO-PI test), approaches to learning (R-SPQ-2F test), and preferences for teaching and learning activities and assessment modes. The online survey study was carried out at a Swedish teaching university on students in a business (n=144) and preschool teacher education program (n=179). The findings revealed systematic differences between the types of assessment modes preferred and significant differences between the two majors regarding learning approaches, motives, and strategies. The findings are examined in relation to models of learning and disjuncture, discussions of educational relationships and risk, and concepts of teaching and learning regimes. Teachers and curriculum developers face two issues. First, teachers who are new or come from a different teaching and learning regime may run the risk of alienating students and causing them extreme anxiety if they use teaching and learning activities and assessment modes students are uncomfortable and unfamiliar with. Second, teachers and curriculum developers run the risk of not challenging students enough, thus depriving them of valuable learning experiences.

  • A guide for teachers and students in a cross-cultural context
  • 2014
  • Rapport (populärvet., debatt m.m.)abstract
    • A Guide for Teachers and Students in a Cross-cultural Context addresses important aspects of cross-cultural education primarily in relation to China and Sweden though much of what is written here also applies to other nationalities. Our observations are based in part on our experience of teaching Chinese students both in China and in Sweden and on six workshops held at Linnaeus University, Sweden, Kristianstad University, Sweden, and Beijing Normal University, China.Our handbook is divided into three sections: practical information; oral interaction in the cross-cultural classroom; and writing in the cross-cultural classroom. The three sections point to potential problems and misunderstandings between China and Sweden and provide practical advice and tips for students and teachers.We welcome Chinese and other international students to Kristianstad University. They enrich our classrooms and stimulate new thinking as well as new teaching practices. It is our hope that readers of our handbook will contact us, providing comments and suggesting additions to the three sections. All comments and suggestions can be sent by e-mail to the contributors.
