Abstract

PCF10 Sub-theme: Building Resilience // The purpose of present study is to examine the association of classroom learning environment in terms of Student Cohesiveness, Teacher Support, Involvement, Investigation, Task Orientation, Cooperation and Equity with resilience among Indian undergraduates. Random sampling technique will be used to collect data from undergraduates. Ex-Post facto research design will be used. Connor Richardson short form scale (Connor & Davidson, 2003) and What is happening in this class questionnaire (Fraser, Fisher & McRobbie, 1996) will be used to measure resilience and learning environment respectively. Pearson correlation will be computed to gauge the relationship between learning environment and resilience among undergraduates. t-test will also be employed to explore gender differences in (i) resilience level among undergraduates and (ii) learning environment and its associated components among Indian undergraduates. Statistical analysis of the data revealed that there exists no gender differences in learning environment, its subscales and resilience among Indian Undergraduates. Correlational analysis suggested that learning environment and its sub-scales i.e. Student Cohesiveness, Teacher Support, Involvement, Investigation, Task Orientation, Cooperation and Equity are positively and significantly correlated with resilience among Indian undergraduates. Education implications for the educators and policy makers were discussed. // Paper ID 0309
