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 them. 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.
