self-learning; didactics of institution of higher education
The New Educational Review, Vol. 55 (2019), s. 112-120
The article presents research on students’ independent self-learning. The
applied method was an analysis of intentionally prepared documents. While
conducting the research, an attempt was made to recognise: the manner of the
understanding the notion of “learning” by the students; the manner of learning
which they apply as well as evaluation of their own effectiveness in this scope.
The participants in the research identify learning mainly as mnemonic acquisition
of new knowledge in the situations related to the process of studying. In the
majority of cases, they work unsystematically, applying ineffective techniques of
learning and express negative judgements on their own learning effectiveness.
