Marshall, Delia; Summers, Mike; Woolnough, Brian
Higher Education, v38 n3 p291-309 Oct 1999
Reports a phenomenographic interview study of 13 British engineering students which identified five conceptions of learning, including: (1) learning as memorizing definitions, equations, and procedures; (2) learning as applying equations and procedures; (3) learning as making sense of physical concepts and procedures; (4) learning as seeing phenomena in a new way; and (5) learning as personal change.
