Australian and Filipino Students’ Approaches to Learning, Conceptions of Learning, and Learner Self-Concepts: A Cross-Cultural Comparison
Barry C. DART, Hitendra PILLAY, & Paul C. BURNETT
This study investigated cross-cultural differences in approaches to learning, conceptions of learning and learner self-concepts. Three groups of secondary students participated in the study: Australian students attending school in Australia, Filipino students studying in Australia and Filipino students attending school in the Philippines. Few cultural differences were found when the correlations between the dependent variables were compared for the three groups. However, significant differences were found between most of the dependent variables particularly for the Australian and Filipino students.
