Abstract

Review of literature documented the role of learning approach in improving students learning outcome. It is also belief that students approach to learning is influence by the learning environment. The purpose of this study is to explore the relationship between learning environment and learning approaches among engineering students. A total of 527 final semester engineering students at technical institute in Malaysia were involved in this study. Data were collected using two sets of questionnaire namely: 1) Course Experience Questionnaire (CEQ) to measure learning environment and ii) Revised Two-Factor Study Process Questionnaire (RSPQ-2F) to measure learning approach. Data were analyzed using multiple regression to predict learning environment factors that are hypothesized to influence learning approaches among engineering students. The implication of learning environment in the promotion of deep approach will be discussed.
