Predicting How They Learn Online: Preliminary Study on Leading Indicators
Tuesday, June 25 3:50 PM-4:10 PM Location: Jordaan 1&2
Abstract: In this presentation, we focus on the relationship between learners’ awareness of their planning habits and e-learning activities in blended learning environments. Data from two courses held in flipped classrooms with a variety of participants were compared. Course A is an in-house training course and its participants were busy adult learners. Course B is a mandatory class for second year undergraduates of the Faculty of Education at a university. Results showed that we could not predict learning activities based on the presence or absence of study planning habits. However, clearly different learning tendencies were observed between the two courses and potentially some adult learners in this research took the active procrastination strategy which is characteristic of high performers.
