Abstract

Recently, the use of technology in learning has become more intensive. Students get access to different knowledge and skills quickly, using mobile phones, laptops, or tablets that connected to the internet. They can learn or read everywhere at any time. It seems that by using digital technologies, students can improve their ability to process information in meaningful way and to get more cognitively involved in their study. However, studies in recent years on students in several Asian countries showed the opposite, that in general students tend to process information in a surface way. This had become a trigger for us to conduct preliminary research to obtain a comprehensive view of undergraduate students’ learning strategy approaches. In addition, this study aimed to explore whether there are differences in learning strategy approaches for different fields of studies. There were 221 undergraduate students of Universitas HKBP Nommensen (UHN), who involved in this study. They studied in various domain of studies such as economics (n= 50), psychology (n = 103), and agriculture (68). The instrument used was an adaptation version of ASSIST (Approaches and Study Skills Inventory for Students) that can identify the main learning strategy approach used by students.
