The Effect of Students' Cultural Values on their Student-Driven Learning Preference

By Patrick Foley and Ann Mitsis

Abstract

This study examined the relationship between business students' cultural orientation and Student-Driven learning styles of 364 higher education business students from Victoria University, Melbourne Australia. Two previously existing inventories were used: Robertson and Hoffman's (2000) Cultural Values Scale, derived from the work of Hofstede (1980, 1991a, 1998), and Honey and Mumford's (1992) Learning Style Questionnaire. One of the major findings of this study was that Student-Driven learning is characterised by students having high Masculinity, Confucian and Uncertainty Avoidance value ratings
