The St Andrews Centre for Higher Education Research currently consists of staff across 17 Schools and six central University units. The Centre aims to facilitate cross-departmental collaboration in higher education research. CHER brings together staff interested in conducting evidence-based higher education research to inform local, national and international policy and practice, and to promote a reflective, analytical view of Higher Education activities.

  • Issues affecting Security Design Pattern engineering 

    de Muijnck-Hughes, Jan; Duncan, Ishbel Mary Macdonald (Oxford Brookes University, 2013-07-09) - Conference item
    Security Design Patterns present the tried and tested design decisions made by security engineers within a well documented format. Patterns allow for complex security concepts, and mechanisms, to be expressed such that non ...
  • Security pattern evaluation 

    Duncan, Ishbel Mary Macdonald; de Muijnck-Hughes, Jan (IEEE, 2014-04) - Conference item
    Current Security Pattern evaluation techniques are demonstrated to be incomplete with respect to quantitative measurement and comparison. A proposal for a dynamic testbed system is presented as a potential mechanism for ...
  • Improving visual representations of code 

    Burd, Liz; Chan, P.S.; Duncan, Ishbel Mary Macdonald; Munro, Malcolm; Young, Peter (Durham University, 1997) - Working or discussion paper
    The contents of this paper describe the work carried out by the Visual Research Group in the Centre for Software Maintenance at the University of Durham.
  • An efficient acoustic density estimation method with human detectors applied to gibbons in Cambodia 

    Kidney, Darren; Rawson, Benjamin M.; Borchers, David Louis; Stevenson, Ben; Marques, Tiago A.; Thomas, Len (2016-05-19) - Journal article
    Some animal species are hard to see but easy to hear. Standard visual methods for estimating population density for such species are often ineffective or inefficient, but methods based on passive acoustics show more promise. ...
  • Safe Drive Stay Alive : exploring effectiveness of a real-world driving intervention for pre-drivers and the utility of the health action process approach 

    Dale, Hannah Louise; Ozakinci, Gozde; Scott, C. (2016-05-13) - Journal article
    Young drivers are greatly overrepresented in road traffic collisions (RTCs) worldwide. Interventions attempt to change driving-related behaviours to reduce injuries and deaths from RTCs. The current study evaluated the ...
