Understanding student learning experiences in a lecture learning environment
Issue Date: 
Paper presented at the Asia-Pacific Education Research Association (APERA) Conference, Singapore, 26-28 November 2008.
Students in tertiary institutions normally learn mathematics through the lecture-tutorial system. They are expected to be independent and to follow-up on the lectures with self-study, including seeking larifications with their tutors during tutorial lessons. Much research has
been conducted about this system and ideas on the effectiveness of large group lectures to engage and maximise student learning have been expounded by educational researchers.
However, not much research has been conducted into student’s day-to-day learning
experiences. This paper is based on data collected for a doctoral study on learning
experiences engaged in by a group of Year 2 students when they studied an Engineering
Mathematics module at Singapore Polytechnic in 2007. Data were collected online, an
adaptation of the Experience Sampling Method developed by Csikszentmihalyi (1997). The
descriptive statistics of student feelings and perspectives of their learning experiences during lectures over a semester will be presented and discussed.
