A Comparison of Learning Experiences of Undergraduates between University and Institute of Technology
The study examined and compared the learning experiences of college students between university and institute of technology. The results reveal that there are a few significant differences between the two groups of teachers in teaching methods and learning evaluations. With regard to teaching methods， university teachers only make more use of “lecture” rather than technical college teachers， “problem solving” are more frequently used by technical college teachers. In respect of learning evaluations， university teachers choose “writing exams” more often， however， technical college teachers take “oral and practical exams” more. No significant difference is found between the two groups of students in effective instructional methods. In addition， the correlation between teaching methods of teachers and student preferences is low. Lecture is the most commonly used teaching method by both groups of teachers， however， is the lowest one correlated with student learning preferences. Written tests and attendance are two commonly used evaluation methods by two groups of teachers. In general， the learning involvement of college students in both groups is not good， technical college students skip less classes than university students. Two groups of students don’t perceive any significant differences in their major dimensions.
