Abstract [en]

Previous studies have successfully demonstrated that there are variations in attitudes towards blended synchronous learning among students in higher education, but few have studied underlying factors. In an attempt to fill this gap, this study aims to investigate the relationship between personality traits and attitudes among students in blended synchronous learning environments.

The research question asked in this paper was:

What type of relationships are there between personality traits and students’ attitudes towards their education in blended synchronous learning environments? This was done by deploying a web based survey to 352 students at Mid Sweden University in Sweden which in the end had a response rate of 25%. Further, a quantitative approach was chosen as the most suitable way to test these relationships and both bivariate and multivariate regressions was used.

The findings in the study indicates that personality traits are linked to a different set of attitudes among the students. The conclusions were that there exist significant relationships between

Conscientiousness and Neuroticism and students estimated study achievement. There was also a positive significant correlation between Extraversion and that students prefer to study in groups and significant correlations between Extraversion and Conscientiousness and that students prefer to study independently was also found. Finally, there exist significant relationships between Conscientiousness and Neuroticism and students' perceived learning ability through blended synchronous learning environments.

Abstract [sv]

Undervisningsmetoderna har förändrats de senaste åren och att universitet och högskolor erbjuder distansundervisning blir allt vanligare i Sverige såväl som globalt. Hybrida lärmiljöer syftar till kombinationen av klassrumsundervisning och distansutbildning i realtid. Studenters attityder i dessa lärmiljöer har tidigare studerats, men få studier har undersökt bakomliggande faktorer. Studenters attityder i hybrida lärmiljöer är viktiga att undersöka då exempelvis en viss personlighetstyp kan korrelera med en viss attityd, vilket i sin tur skulle kunna skapa klyftor och olika syn på utbildningen och undervisningsmetoden.

Denna studie har besvarat forskningsfrågan:

Vilka samband finns mellan personlighetsdrag och studenters attityder till sin utbildning i hybrida lärmiljöer? Forskningsfrågan besvarades utifrån en kvantitativ ansats där en enkätundersökning användes som forskningsstrategi och datainsamlingsmetod. Ett webbaserat frågeformulär distribuerades till 352 studenter som studerade i en hybrid lärmiljö vid Mittuniversitetet. Svarsfrekvensen uppgick till 25% och för att analysera resultatet användes bivariata och multivariata regressioner.

Resultaten indikerade på att personlighetsdrag i vissa fall var kopplade till attityder hos studenterna. De slutsatser som denna

studie resulterade i tyder på att det fanns signifikanta samband mellan

Samvetsgrannhet samt Neuroticism och studenternas uppskattade studieprestation. Det fanns även ett positivt signifikant samband mellan Extraversion och att studenterna föredrar att studera i grupp och det fanns även signifikanta samband mellan Extraversion samt Samvetsgrannhet och att studenterna föredrar att studera självständigt. Avslutningsvis fanns det även signifikanta samband mellan Samvetsgrannhet samt Neuroticism och studenternas upplevda inlärningsförmåga via hybrida lärmiljöer.
