Resumen

ACEVEDO, Diofanor; TORRES, José D  y  TIRADO, Diego F. Analysis of the Study Habits and Motivation for Learning of Distance Education Systems Engineering Students of the University of Cartagena (Colombia). Form. Univ. [online]. 2015, vol.8, n.5, pp.59-66. ISSN 0718-5006.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-50062015000500007.

This paper presents and analyzes the study habits and motivation for learning of Distance Education Systems Engineering Students of the University of Cartagena in Colombia. A random sample of 64 students of the first to the fifth semester was considered in the study. The students were asked to answer, in person-to-person mode, a modified version of the questionnaire Study Habits and Motivation for Learning. Students indicated to have little planning of academic tasks, to suffer of emotional problems, to do inadequate allocation of time and employing incorrect methods of study. They also said to have few skills in searching information. Also, 84.4% revealed that they did not use bibliographic references, and 57.1% did not know the general structure of a scientific paper, which reflects little induction into scientific research in first semesters of the career. No statistically significant differences (p>0.05) between men and women surveyed were presented, so the study habits and motivation for learning are equal in both genders.

Palabras clave : study habits; motivation; learning; distance education; engineering education.
