Enfoques de aprendizaje, autorregulación y rendimiento en tres universidades europeas

El trabajo analiza la relación entre enfoques de aprendizaje, autorregulación y rendimiento en estudiantes universitarios de tres universidades públicas europeas: una británica (UWIC, Cardiff, UK) y dos españolas (Almería y Granada). Se utilizan dos medidas de autoinforme para la recogida de información, el cuestionario R-SPQ-2F y las escalas EIPEA. Los resultados indican relaciones de los enfoques con la autorregulación y el rendimiento académico. Según el tipo de rendimiento analizado (conceptual, procedimental, actitudinal) se producen relaciones diferentes con los enfoques, lo que puede dar explicación a las conclusiones dispares encontradas en otras investigaciones. A partir de las conclusiones se proponen nuevas líneas de investigación.

Learning approaches, self-regulation and achievement in three European universities. The current study seeks to analyze the relationship between learning approaches, self-regulation and performance. Data are gathered from three public European universities, one from the UK (University of Wales Institute, Cardiff) and two from Spain (Universities of Almeria and Granada). Two self-report measurements were used to collect information, the R-SPQ-2F questionnaire and the IATLP Scales. Results indicate that learning approaches are related to self-regulation and to academic performance. Different relationships with learning approaches are obtained depending on the type of performance analyzed (conceptual, procedural, attitudinal), which may account for divergent conclusions in other research studies. New lines of research are proposed based on the conclusions.
