18 SES 03 A, Professional Learning in Physical Education and Sport Coaching
The development of basic skills in students is one of the basic purposes of the university, where future professionals are trained who must be prepared to meet the demands of society (Macías, Rodríguez-Sánchez, Aguilera & Gil-Fernández, 2017). These are intended to develop a professional profile different from the traditional one where learning becomes active, constructivist, they seek to provide students with greater autonomy in their learning process (Ramírez, Gónzalez & Salcines, 2017), that is, the student, passes, from Be a passive agent to be the protagonist of your learning process and the builder of your personal learning environment (Khün, 2017), so you must introduce participatory strategies that facilitate this objective. The student’s role in constructivist learning is active and the teacher’s role is that of a planner, facilitator and guide who supports the student by monitoring their progress (Lluch & Portillo, 2018; Martímez, 2015; Svinicki & Schallert, 2016).
Among the basic professional and personal skills that university students must acquire throughout their initial training, there is the learning ability that will allow them to continue studying autonomously. From the socio-constructivist vision of teaching and learning the competence of learning to learn is born, from this thought, learning is understood as a process of construction of meaning and attribution of meaning (LIuch & Portillo, 2018). The competence of learning to learn is considered fundamental in the process of lifelong learning that occurs throughout life. It is thought that a key component to developing the competence to learn to learn is the self-regulation of learning (Salmerón & Gutiérrez, 2012) since it is one of the cross-selling elements found in all subjects in the field University (Hortigüela & Pérez-Pueyo, 2016). This is conceived as a process by which students, in an autonomous and motivated way, organize their activity in order to achieve the objectives that are imposed or proposed (Hernández & Camargo, 2017). Self-regulation of learning is based on the active collaboration of the student in the personal process of their learning from the motivational, metacognitive and behavioural point of view (Zimmerman, 1989; Zimmerman, 2013). Specifically, self-regulated students use specific processes that transform their pre-existing skill into behaviour related to various areas of functioning (Zimmerman, 2013).
Bandura (1977). In his socio-cognitive theory, refers to self-regulated learning as a process where a student proposes his learning goals, monitors, regulates and controls the acquisition of knowledge. In this same sense, Bandura (1986), requires three threads of regulation: self-observation (focus, check), self- evaluation and self- reaction. For the development of this competence, it is essential that students develop the ability to think and act on their own, guiding these attitudes towards achieving their own goals. To achieve self-regulation, students must discern the deficiencies in their initial approach, find ways to correct them strategically and make the necessary effort to succeed in the future (Zimmerman 2013). In this way, the self- regulation of learning becomes an important part of the teaching-learning process, since it basically consists of organizing behavioural and environmental cognitive activities by students and leading to the success of learning.
As for the initial training of the students of Physical Activity and Sports Sciences, the specific needs of the degree, require the training to face and respond to the challenges that society demands, being one of these the constant professional update. For this, you must have the possibility to continue learning, formally through courses or through self-learning, once your higher education is finished.
The purpose of this study has been to know and analyse the strategies of self-regulation of student learning in their last year of training in the degree of Physical Activity and Sports Sciences.
The design of this research is exploratory in nature, where a quantitative, non-experimental methodology is used, whit a descriptive statistic, where the self-regulation of student learning at the University of Alicante is referred to and analyzed. The sample consisted of 77 students belonging to the last year of the Physical Activity Sports Sciences degree (18 women, 59 men), of the academic year 2018-2019. The instrument to collect the quantitative data was the Self-Regulation Learning Strategy Inventory -Self-Report (SRSI-SR) adapted and validated by Hernández & Camacho (2017), which consists of 18 items of Likert scale of four points (1 = never, 2 = almost never, 3 = almost always, 4 = always). Likewise, the aforementioned questionnaire contemplates four factors to be assessed: inadequate regulation habits, organization of the environment, a search of information, and organization of the task. The procedure followed was firstly, to select a questionnaire that evaluated the self-regulation of university student learning. In the second place, the questionnaire was provided for this research, using the Google Drive form to be completed online by the students of the last year Physical Activity and Sports Science course. In this process, students were informed of the confidentiality and anonymity of the answers. The quantitative data were structured and analyzed using the statistical package SPSS version 23 for Windows, using descriptive statistics, means, standard deviation, and cross tables. For the comparison of means, the t statistic was used.
Factor I. Inappropriate habits. Regarding the results obtained from the investigations related to the inappropriate regulation habits factor, we observed in a first descriptive analysis that in general terms they have an adequate habit of regulating their learning, ask the teacher when they do not understand a topic, they are not easily distracted When they are studying, they do not give up easily when they do not understand the subject, and they do not ignore subjects that are difficult to understand. Factor II. Organization of the environment. This factor refers to studying in quiet places without distractions or interruptions, we observe that students in general terms create a favorable environment for their learning. Factor III. Find information. In the items related to the search for bibliographic references and the search for complementary material, students show less acquired competence. The same does not happen with the item that refers to the investigation when an assigned task is not understood. Factor IV. Organization of the task. Students generally have a habit of the proper organization (they order the sequence of tasks, coordinate study time, organize a study schedule, use a method to organize study material, and finally think of the best way to study). As Salmerón and Gutiérrez (2012) mention, students still come from an educational system, characterized by the hierarchy where the student continues to reproduce the academic discourse, this fact does not adapt to the new current curricular or social demands that promote a more independent work of the students. Finally, this is of interest to be able to implement specific intervention strategies that promote the development of study techniques and autonomous learning, as referred to in the educational policies of the European Union.
