Abstract

Blended learning environment (BLE) is increasingly used in the world, especially in university degrees and it is based on integrating web-based learning and face-to-face (FTF) learning environments. Besides integrating different learning environments, BLE also addresses to students with different learning approaches. The 'learning approach' categorizes individuals as 'surface learners' and 'deep learners'. This study investigated whether the academic performance and the satisfaction levels of the pre-service English teachers varied in respect to their learning approaches in a blended learning environment.
