    4. 4. www.helsinki.fi/yliopisto• There is a long history of research on studentlearning in higher education• Previous research has applied a number offrameworks when examining studying in university:‒ Student approaches to learning (SAL)e.g. Biggs 1987; Entwistle & Ramsden, 1983; Lonka &Lindblom-Ylänne, 1996; Marton & Säljö, 1976‒ Self-regulated learning (SRL)e.g. Boekaerts, 1997; Pintrich, 2000; Vermunt, 1998‒ Motivation (Cognitive and attributional startegies, SAQ)e.g. Cantor, 1990; Eronen, Nurmi, & Salmela-Aro, 1998;Jones & Berglas 1978; Martin, Marsh, & Debus, 2001;Norem, 1989; Nurmi, Aunola, Salmela-Aro, & Lindroos, 200315.5.2013 4Faculty of Behavioural Sciences / Ketonen et al. /EFYE Conference, May 14, 2013, Helsinki, FinlandIntroduction

    8. 8. www.helsinki.fi/yliopistoWe looked at relationships between• problems in studying (e.g. in self-regulation)• motivation (optimism vs. task avoidance)• experienced challenge and competence• study engagement• confidence of one’s career choiceamong first-year students from different domains15.5.2013 8Faculty of Behavioural Sciences / Ketonen et al. /EFYE Conference, May 14, 2013, Helsinki, FinlandAims

(same variables as in pre-study)2) Did these groups differ in terms of domain (faculty)3) How did these groups differ in terms of experiencedchallenge and competence, study engagement,career choice, invested self-study time and studysuccess?15.5.2013 9Faculty of Behavioural Sciences / Ketonen et al. /EFYE Conference, May 14, 2013, Helsinki, FinlandResearch questions

    19. 19. www.helsinki.fi/yliopisto• Experienced level of challenge and competence weredifferent  this supports the idea ofconstructive/destructive friction, where different groups ofstudents react in various ways:• Optimistic, functional students  highest sense ofcompetence, study engagement and confidence of careerchoice• Optimistic with problems  expressed highest challenge• Pessimistic, dysfunctional  lowest sense of competence,study engagement and confidence of career choice,invested least time in self-study and got lowest grades15.5.2013 19Faculty of Behavioural Sciences / Ketonen et al. /EFYE Conference, May 14, 2013, Helsinki, FinlandOur preliminary reflections
