Talvio, Markus; Berg, Minna; Ketonen, Elina; Komulainen, Erkki; Lonka, Kirsti – Journal of Education and Training Studies, 2015
Modern learning psychology places an emphasis on the ability of teachers to promote their students' social and emotional learning (SEL) and living a good life. Research on precisely how teachers promote SEL and well-being among their students, however, remains scarce. This study focused on evaluating the Lions Quest teaching workshop (LQ), which…

Haarala-Muhonen, Anne; Ruohoniemi, Mirja; Parpala, Anna; Komulainen, Erkki; Lindblom-Ylänne, Sari – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2017
The relationship between study success and the nature of 550 first-year law students' study processes was investigated using a modified version of the Approaches to Learning and Studying Inventory. The students were classified into four study profiles according to their approaches to learning, indicating the nature of their study processes. In…

Parpala, Anna; Lindblom-Ylanne, Sari; Komulainen, Erkki; Entwistle, Noel – Learning Environments Research, 2013
The study examined the use of the modified Experiences of Teaching and Learning Questionnaire (ETLQ) in the Finnish context by focusing on its factor structures and comparing them with those for British data. A total of 2,509 Finnish and 2,710 British students completed the questionnaire. The comparison of the factor structures were conducted…

Talvio, Markus; Lonka, Kirsti; Komulainen, Erkki; Kuusela, Marjo; Lintunen, Taru – Electronic Journal of Research in Educational Psychology, 2013
Introduction: This study explored the development of teachers' social and emotional learning (SEL) skills by using "Teacher Effectiveness Training (TET)" (Gordon Training International) as an intervention with two groups of teachers. Further Gordon's model was approached from the perspective of modern educational psychology. The effects…

Hailikari, Telle; Nevgi, Anne; Komulainen, Erkki – Educational Psychology, 2008
The aim of this study was to explore the relationships between prior knowledge, academic self-beliefs, and previous study success in predicting the achievement of 139 students on a university mathematics course. Structural equation modelling was used to explore the interplay of these variables in predicting student achievement. The results…

Parpala, Anna; Lindblom-Ylanne, Sari; Komulainen, Erkki; Litmanen, Topi; Hirsto, Laura – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2010
Background: There is evidence of disciplinary variation in students' approaches to learning. Furthermore, previous research has shown that students' approaches are related to their perceptions of the learning environment. Aim: The overall objective of the study was to analyse combinations of approaches to learning among undergraduates in different…

Huurre, Taina; Aro, Hillevi; Rahkonen, Ossi; Komulainen, Erkki – Educational Research, 2006
Background: Education fundamentally shapes an individual's life chances and social status. Duration and level of education are associated with people's incomes, socio-economic status, living standard, lifestyle and the respect and esteem they enjoy. Failure to fulfil educational potential may have long-term consequences for later occupational and…

Komulainen, Erkki – 1971
This study examines quantification of the instructional process through the use of Markov chaining, and by considering the transition probabilities within a framework provided by the taxonomy used, attempts to obtain information about behavior sequences common to all lessons. (Author/DLG)

Komulainen, Erkki – 1973
The Instructional Process Analysis Project (IPA) is a study jointly undertaken by the Nordic countries in 1967. The present study discusses a methodological problem area of very narrow scope within the IPA project. The general aim of the study is to examine the factor-analytical method of sequence analysis and to produce variables that measure the…

Komulainen, Erkki – 1970
The reliability of coding problems associated with observation studies is discussed. The purpose is two-fold: a) to examine coding reliability by applying the profile method to two coding occasions separated by a lengthy time interval with the object of determining both within-occasion reliability (agreement) and between-occasion reliability…

Komulainen, Erkki – 1971
This paper examines interaction in a school class through the factor-analytical P-technique, considers the behavior of the factor scores in combination with certain other variables included in the interaction matrix, explores the formation of homogeneous groups of lessons in a grouping analysis based on the factor scores, and compares this latter…

Koskenniemi, Matti; Komulainen, Erkki – 1974
The research reported in this document represents efforts to search for the structure and dynamics of the instructional process itself. Without reliable knowledge of these basic facts, improvement of teacher education and the guidance of teachers would remain based on unsystematic experiences and speculation. In order to penetrate the structure…
