Concepts are discussed within the frame of educational development literature and research on student learning. Conceptions of learning, approaches to learning and studying derived from Marton and Säljö’s (1976, 1997) ideas on learning and on Entwistle and Ramsden (1983) descriptions of approaches to learning. An extensive body of quantitative and qualitative research focused on understanding learning from the student perspective. The results have suggested that students tend to adopt qualitatively different ways of learning and of studying, which, at a certain extent, may represent a reaction to their perceptions of the teaching-learning environments (Biggs, 2003; Entwistle, 2000; Prosser & Trigwell, 1999; Ramsden, 1997).
