The Impact of Explicit Instruction about the Nature of Personal Learning Style on First-Year Students' Perceptions of Successful Learning
Nickles, David A.
Journal of General Education, v52 n2 p108-144 2003
This research examines how first-year students' conceptualizations of personal learning theories changed as a result of instruction on learning styles. Students drew concept maps to organize their perceptions related to being successful learners. After completing learning inventories, students completed another concept map using the original prompt. Data analysis reveals that students developed more sophisticated and complex understandings of themselves as learners. (Contains 2 tables.)
