Goal Orientation, Deep Learning, and Sustainable Feedback in Higher Business Education
Geitz, Gerry; Brinke, Desirée Joosten-ten; Kirschner, Paul A.
Journal of Teaching in International Business, v26 n4 p273-292 2015
Relations between and changeability of goal orientation and learning behavior have been studied in several domains and contexts. To alter the adopted goal orientation into a mastery orientation and increase a concomitant deep learning in international business students, a sustainable feedback intervention study was carried out. Sustainable feedback implies acknowledgment of students' need to be actively involved in their own feedback process. First, relations between and changeability of the concepts found in previous research were validated. Second, the effects of the sustainable feedback intervention were analyzed. Although sustainable feedback helped mastery-oriented learners maintain deep learning, it did not directly influence their goal orientations.
