Science & Education News Digest: July 2017

Welcome to Learning Science’s News Digest for July 2017.

This month we learned about potential new changes to TEF and the pay-packets of vice-chancellors, and the finalists of the Global Higher Education Excellence Awards.

We cover a study on the thinking processes of chemistry students, and a report on how students feel before uni vs during or after. There is news, although it’s not entirely new, that the proportion first-class degrees is greatly increasing at some institutions.

In science, it appears that frogs benefited greatly from the event that killed off the non-avian dinosaurs, and we discover a “charming” new particle.
