Student behaviour in contemporary Higher Education is a key
issue in the UK and internationally. This SEDA Special explores how student
behaviour that encourages positive learner and institutional outcomes can be
developed through the creation of positive learning cultures. The Special
balances examples of practices from diverse institutions in UK Higher Education
with very practical guidance relevant to teaching staff and those who support

The introductory chapter summarises contextual issues and
key international literature, before four case studies describe examples of
effective practice and share practical guidance gained from the host institutions
for the day to day management of student behaviour. These case studies describe
positive cultures created through strategic use of data and learning analytics,
effective student engagement and partnership. Each case study takes a proactive
and preventative stance toward enabling student success through positive
cultures and the encouragement of effective learner behaviour and contains a
wealth of advice and experience for readers to use in their own programmes,
disciplines and institutions.
