Effects of Active Learning on Students’ Performance in Higher Learning Institutions
Yüksek Öğrenim Kurumlarında Aktif Öğrenmenin Öğrencilerin Performansına Etkisi

Egemen HANIMOĞLU [1]


The study features analysis of the performance of 305 university students from Cukurova University at different grades. The study aims to establish how the memories and overall performance regarding different study materials of students from diverse grades differ from each other. Qualitative study design was employed with data collected from students in three different courses. Results were tabulated as per the various courses under study. Two tables, featuring five most remembered concepts in all courses, and all course recall outcomes were also included to offer a cross-sectional view. The results pointed to a correlation between teaching methods and remembrance patterns in all the participants. Depending on the grade and the content, enhanced understanding of the course material was found to depend on the forms of class presentations adopted by the tutor. It is therefore important that the tutor choose appropriate teaching methods and techniques that would deliver optimal experiences to all the students in the same class. Notably, there were higher average and mean scores for course materials taught through video presentation compared to the rest of the learning forms. 

Bu çalışma Çukurova Üniversitesi’nde farklı sınıflarda öğrenim gören 305 öğrencinin performans analizlerini sunmaktadır. Çalışma, öğrencilerin hafızalarının ve farklı çalışma materyallerine ilişkin genel performansının diğer sınıflarda öğrenim gören öğrencilerinkinden nasıl farklılaştığını tespit etmeyi amaçlamaktadır. Çalışmada nitel araştırma deseni kullanılmıştır ve veri üç farklı dersi alan öğrencilerden toplanmıştır. Sonuçlar, çalışmaya dahil edilen derslere göre tablolaştırılmıştır.  Kesitsel görünümü sunmak için bütün derslerden en çok hatırlanan beş kavramı ve tüm derslerdeki hatırlama sonuçlarını gösteren iki tabloya da yer verilmiştir. Sonuçlar, tüm katılımcılarda öğretim yöntemleri ve anma kalıpları arasında bir korelasyon olduğuna işaret etmektedir. Öğrenim seviyesi ve ders içeriğine bağlı olarak, ders materyalinin daha iyi anlaşılması öğretmen tarafından benimsenen sunum biçimine bağlıdır. Bu sebeple dersi veren kişinin sınıftaki bütün öğrencilere en iyi deneyimleri kazandıracak materyalleri seçmesi büyük önem taşımaktadır. Özellikle video sunumu yoluyla öğretilen ders materyallerinin diğer öğrenme biçimlerine kıyasla daha yüksek ortalama puanlarına sahip olduğu görülmüştür.
