Massification of Higher Education has resulted in a rapid increase in undergraduate populations, without an increase in the number of teaching staff. One consequence is that students are typically taught in larger classes. While the impact of class s...

Levelling the playing field: The effect of including widening participation in university league tables (2020)
Journal Article
Hubbard, K., Nattrass, S., & O'Neill, M. (in press). Levelling the playing field: The effect of including widening participation in university league tables. International Review of Education,

Universities are ranked in University League Tables (ULTs). Sustained academic criticism of the rationale and methodology of ULTs has not stopped these rankings exerting considerable pressure on the decisions of University managers. Widening Particip...

The Student Thesis Conference as a model for authentic and inclusive student research dissemination (2018)
Journal Article
Douglas, C., Yearsley, J., Scott, G. W., & Hubbard, K. E. (2018). The Student Thesis Conference as a model for authentic and inclusive student research dissemination. Higher Education Pedagogies, 3(1), 319-341. https://doi.org/10.1080/23752696.2018.1478675

Engaging in a final year project is required in most undergraduate degree programmes. However, the student research experience often differs from the academic experience due to a lack of opportunities for research dissemination. We present the Studen...

Circadian oscillations of cytosolic free calcium regulate the Arabidopsis circadian clock (2018)
Journal Article
Martí Ruiz, M. C., Hubbard, K. E., Gardner, M. J., Jung, H. J., Aubry, S., Hotta, C. T., …Webb, A. A. (2018). Circadian oscillations of cytosolic free calcium regulate the Arabidopsis circadian clock. Nature Plants, 4(9), 690-698. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41477-018-0224-8

In the last decade, the view of circadian oscillators has expanded from transcriptional feedback to incorporate post-transcriptional, post-translational, metabolic processes and ionic signalling. In plants and animals, there are circadian oscillation... Read More about Circadian oscillations of cytosolic free calcium regulate the Arabidopsis circadian clock.

Perceptions of scientific research literature and strategies for reading papers depend on academic career stage (2017)
Journal Article
Hubbard, K. E., & Dunbar, S. D. (2017). Perceptions of scientific research literature and strategies for reading papers depend on academic career stage. PloS one, 12(12), e0189753. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0189753

Reading primary research literature is an essential skill for all scientists and students on science degree programmes, however little is known about how researchers at different career stages interact with and interpret scientific papers. To explore... Read More about Perceptions of scientific research literature and strategies for reading papers depend on academic career stage.

Undergraduate students as co-producers in the creation of first-year practical class resources (2017)
Journal Article
Hubbard, K. E., Brown, R., Deans, S., García, M. P., Pruna, M., & Mason, M. J. (2017). Undergraduate students as co-producers in the creation of first-year practical class resources. Higher Education Pedagogies, 2(1), 58-78. https://doi.org/10.1080/23752696.2017.1338529

Undergraduate students are increasingly working with academic staff to evaluate and design teaching materials in Higher Education, thereby moving from being passive consumers of knowledge to genuine partners in their education. Here we describe a stu... Read More about Undergraduate students as co-producers in the creation of first-year practical class resources.
