PEGALAJAR-PALOMINO, María C.. Relationship between academic-personal motivation of freshman pedagogy students and individual learning strategies. Form. Univ. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.5, pp.257-268. ISSN 0718-5006.

The present study analyzes the relationship between academic and personal motivation of the novel university student and individual learning strategies developed in her/his initial training process. The research is based on a descriptive-correlational methodology, using the survey as a data collection technique through validated questionnaires. The sample is composed of first year students in the degree of early childhood and primary education from two Spanish universities. The results show that exam preparation and conceptualization strategies are the most developed by the students. Students enter higher education for personal reasons and because of the conditions in which they pursue their studies. Correlations between the variables studied included significant differences according to student’s age and university ownership. This study highlights the importance of exploring student profiles for developing an effective and improved quality learning process in higher education.
