1. What we mean by talented students? 
All students have a talent for something. We focus on this page on talent development in special programmes in higher education, mostly called “honours programmes”. Do these students learn to perform more difficult tasks, solve complicated sums or analyse difficult texts?  Are these students now only get an A+? No! When we talk about talented students, we focus at the qualities of a student that can be further developed and can lead to exceptional results and outstanding performance. These qualities  can relate to many domains. In education, students can achieve good results in a particular domain, both in practical terms ( “they have golden hands”) and in theoretical subjects (“brains”). For example, they can learn to work very systematically or learn to recognize and use their creative potential, and also, to communicate clearly or they learn to cooperate well together. Sometimes students (in an honours programme) discover the importance of taking the initiative and seizing opportunities.

The Berkeley Student Learning Center gives in their website an interesting overview of different Study and Success Strategies. One of the strategies described is focused on the question How to counteract procrastination.
Procrastination (Wikipedia): ” is the avoidance of doing a task that needs to be accomplished.[1] It is the practice of doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, or carrying out less urgent tasks instead of more urgent ones, thus putting off impending tasks to a later time. Sometimes, procrastination takes place until the “last-minute” before a deadline. ” Read More →

In many universities, students are asked to evaluate the quality of the teacher and of some other aspects of courses they have followed. Recently, a meta- evaluation has been conducted focused on the question if students will learn more from ‘good’ teachers. The main conclusions from this research study were:

“Students do not learn more from professors with higher student evaluation of teaching (SET) ratings.” ……. .”Re-analyses of previous meta-analyses of multisection studies indicate that SET ratings explain at most 1% of variability in measures of student learning. New meta-analyses of multisection studies show that SET ratings are unrelated to student learning.” Read More →

B. P. Godor, published on September 5, 2016, Erasmus University Rotterdam. One of the most important things that students get from university is their grades. This quote from Aiken from the 1960’s still seems very valid today. But questioning the black box that surrounds grading and assessment almost amounts to colleagueal heresy. Read More →
