Gijbels, David; Donche, Vincent; Richardson, John T.E. & Vermunt, Jan D. (Eds.). Learning Patterns in Higher Education: Dimensions and research perspectives. London/New York: Routledge. 2014. Pages: 320
The focal questions that are discussed and analysed in this edition are how students and adults learn, how to measure the differences in learning in a valid and reliable way, and how to enhance the quality of student learning. The texts in the book are divided in two parts: the first one deals with more conceptual and psychological matters while the second one focuses on more empirical issues such as how learning develops and how it can be measured.
The book offers several perspectives on the topic of student learning and measurement: cultural influences on learning patterns, predicting learning outcomes, student-centred learning environments and self-directed learning, and mathematics learning.Routledge
