Abstract


Resumen 

Se analizan los estilos de aprendizaje (EA) en alumnos de educación superior y su relación con el aprendizaje auto-regulado (AR) visto como competencia para el aprovechamiento de los EA, mediante un enfoque mixto de investigación con 337 participantes. Se aplicó el LSI de Kolb y el CAAR (Cuestionario de aprendizaje auto-regulado). Se aplicaron encuestas y se realizaron entrevistas. No se encontró correlación entre EA y AR. Mediante análisis ANOVA, se encontró que el género influye significativamente en la dimensión de EA de observación reflexiva con una significancia de 0.017. La carrera influye significativamente en la preferencia de los alumnos de la dimensión de EA de experimentación activa con una significancia de 0.021. El estudio cualitativo arroja información que parece sugerir cómo es la relación de las diferentes formas de estudiar con la presencia o ausencia el AR. El instrumento CAAR es una de las aportaciones de este estudio.

SELF-REGULATED LEARNING AS COMPETITION FOR THE USE OF LEARNING STYLES IN COLLEGE STUDENTS 

Abstract 

Relationship between learning styles (LS) and self-regulated learning (SRL) as competence of higher education students is analyzed through mixed approach research. This study includes 337 participants. The LSI of KOLB and CAAR (Self-regulated Questionnaire) were applied. Also surveys and interviews were administrated. No correlation was found between EA and AR. By ANOVA analysis, we found that gender significantly influences the size of EA reflective observation with a significance of 0.017. The career significantly influences the preference of the students in the EA dimension active experimentation with a significance of 0.021. The qualitative study provides information that could suggest how the relationship of different ways to study is with the presence or absence of AR. The instrument CAAR is one of the contributions of this study.
