Changing learning preferences when preparing for exams

Aktivität: VortragWissenschaftlicher Vortrag (Science-to-Science)


Blended learning increases students' selection of learning materials because it combines the offers of online and face-to-face courses. Clearly, these learning materials do not have the same importance to all students because students have their own ways of learning and therefore, they use different learning materials. However, research indicates that learning preferences can be adapted. Hence, the study at hand investigates if students adjust their learning behaviour according to the exam they have to pass and if engaged learners show a different adaption process than disengaged students. Results show that all students adapt their learning behaviour regardless of their learning style and their effort. This means that the exam drives the usage of the materials more than the perceived importance of those materials and students' efforts which allows some recommendation for educators
