How Educational Practices Affect the Development of Life-Long Learning Orientations in Traditionally-Aged Undergraduate Students
Mayhew, Matthew J.; Wolniak, Gregory C.; Pascarella, Ernest T.
Research in Higher Education, v49 n4 p337-356 Jun 2008
We investigated curricular conditions and educational practices that influenced the development of life-long learning orientations among 405 undergraduate students. Results suggest that growth in life-long learning orientations was facilitated by instruction that included opportunities for reflection, active learning, and perspective-taking and that provided students with opportunities for positively interacting with diverse peers. Negative diverse peer interactions were found to stifle development. Implications for researchers and practitioners are discussed.
