The Learning Barometer: learning environment and learning approaches

The Learning Barometer is a survey which is conducted by the Ministry of Higher Education and Science. The survey is conducted among students at all continuing education institutions in a cooperation between the Ministry and the individual educational institution. The survey was conducted in 2018 for the first time and will be conducted every second year from now on.

The results of the survey will be used to enable each of the institutions to develop their programmes based on the input they receive from their students.

In the Learning Barometer, a proportion of the questions are based on the research-based questionnaire ‘LEARN’, which was developed and is used by researchers from Finland. LEARN asks about the students’ own approach to learning, as well as the students’ experience of their programme and learning environment in precisely their educational programme.

You will find more about the Learning Barometer and LEARN on the Ministry of Higher Education and Science’s website. You can also find the questionnaire that is sent to the students here (in Danish only).
