The development of rulebound strategies for manipulating seriated cups: A parallel between action and grammar
Abstract Systematic observation of American children from 11 to 36 months of age playing with seriated nesting cups established the existence of a developmental sequence of rulebound or consistent… Expand
Student engagement in the educational interface: understanding the mechanisms of student success
ABSTRACT Student success and retention continue to be of concern for higher education institutions. Wider participation, combined with lower completion rates for non-traditional students, highlights… Expand
Student interest as a key driver of engagement for first year students.
Much has been written about the challenges faced by first year students at university. This paper adds to that literature by exploring student interest, known to be associated with persistence and… Expand
