Promoting changes in learning styles and motivations on higher education students through collaborative activities in blended learning
This article reports the findings of a study of 80 students of higher education in Mexico to promote changes in their motivation and learning strategies through self-managed learning oriented activities and collaborative work on b-learning. The MSLQ instrument was applied pre- and post-treatment. Statistical data were analyzed. The results indicated that anxiety, extrinsic motivation and search for help can be modified, according to the ideas of Donolo et al. (2004). We analyze the relevance of the consideration of learning styles and motivation for teaching and distance learning in b-learning.
