Mature Students in Higher Education: I. A Literature Survey on Approaches to Studying.
Richardson, John T. E.
Studies in Higher Education, v19 n3 p309-25 1994
Research suggests mature college students use more desirable approaches to academic learning, adopting a deep approach (meaning orientation) more often and a surface approach less often than younger students. Explanations include motivation by intrinsic goals; acquisition of a surface approach by younger students in secondary education; and effects of life experience. (Author/MSE)
