The purpose of this research was to investigate factors influencing learning outcomes and effects of self-directed learning ability and motivation on learning satisfaction of nursing students in blended learning environment. A survey was used, and the subjects were 140 undergraduate students participated in Adult Nursing lesson at D University. Data collected from 9 to 14 June, 2014. There were no significant differences among general characteristics. Self-directed learning ability and learning satisfaction had significant correlations with each other (r=.25, p=.003). Self-directed learning ability was significantly associated with learning satisfaction, explaining 22.1% of the variance (F=20.74, p<.001). The results suggest that further research is needed to consider self-directed learning ability of students and to test the advantages of blended learning in developing contents in blended learning.

본 연구는 간호대학생을 대상으로 학습효과를 향상시키기 위한 학습전략으로써 블렌디드 러닝을 적용하여 자기주도학습력, 학습동기, 학습만족도와의 상관관계를 확인하고 학습만족도에 어떠한 영향을 미치는지 규명하기 위해 시도된 조사연구이다. 연구대상자는 D대학교 성인간호학 수업에 참여하는 학생 140명으로 7주 동안 면대면 수업과 6주 이러닝 수업을 진행한 후 2014년 6월 9일부터 6월 14일까지 자료를 수집하였다. 연구결과, 일반적 특성에 따른 변수들의 차이는 없었으며, 학생들의 학습만족도는 자기주도학습력과 유의한 상관관계가 있었다(r=.25, p=.003). 자기주도학습력이 학습만족도에 영향을 미치는 관련 요인으로 설명력은 22.1%로 나타났다(F=20.74, p<.001). 본 연구를 통해 간호대학생의 학습만족도를 향상시키기 위해서는 자기주도학습력을 고려한 블렌디드 러닝 콘텐츠 개발이 요구되고 다양한 블렌디드 러닝 운영방법에 관한 연구가 필요하다고 본다.
