A Study on Self-directed Learning Strategy in Promoting the Action of Physical Activity for Body Weight Control Members ~ An Example of Members from the Faculty and Students of National Taiwan Normal University
body weight control members
total amount of physical activity
The main purpose of the subject was to discuss the effects of the “self- directed learning strategy” in promoting the action of physical activity for the body weight control members from the faculty and students of national Taiwan normal university. The impacts was analyzed from the points of perception of physical activity, perceived benefit for physical activity, perceived barrier for physical activity, self-efficiency for physical activity, body composition, and the amount of physical activity. The process of self-directed learning was also estimated by the faculty and students involved. The study targeted the members from the faculty and students of national Taiwan normal university who had the will to join our self-directed learning program for body weight control. 39 persons was enrolled by such the purposing sampling method. The course of self-directed learning lasted for about 2 months. It included 7 times classes of physical activity and every class had one hour learning. Members were asked to complete the questionnaire and accept the examination of body composition before, just after and 3-months follow-up after the course in order to realize the immediate and short-term effects after the intervention. From the pre-test analysis of parameters of member background, the score of perceived benefit for physical activity was higher in females than males. However, except for body fat ratio, the score in body composition was higher in males (including body weight, body mass index, waist circumference, and waist-to-hip ratio). Unmarried people had higher body composition score than married people in body weight, body mass index and waist circumference. Members living in home had less body weight than living outside. Older people had much more amount of physical activity especially in moderate to heavy physical activity on non-working days and 3-days amount of physical activity. The faculty was more physical active than students on non-working days and 3-days amount of physical activity. There was more moderate to heavy physical activity in high educated persons in working days. And unmarried people were less physical active in working days than unmarried. After the intervention of self-directed learning strategy in promoting the action of physical activity for the body weight control members, the members expressed positive effects on perception of physical activity, perceived benefit for physical activity, self-efficiency for physical activity, body composition (body weight, body mass index, waist circumference, hip circumference, and waist-to-hip ratio), and the amount of physical activity on working days. And they had reached statistically significant. They displayed such the education affected immediately. After 3 months follow-up after the course completed, perception of physical activity, perceived barrier for physical activity, body composition (body weight, body mass index, waist circumference, hip circumference, and waist-to-hip ratio), and the amount of physical activity on working days had statistically significant difference than before the intervention. They revealed the education course had short-term effect. The members involved all set up their own destination for body weight control. And after the education courses, they express they had got more benefits from the learning process, shared with positive suggestions, and thanked to our instructors, and workers of our health center. Besides, they were also satisfied moderately or very much with the time, location, teachers, the designation and workers of the education course. In conclusion, the self-directed learning method is an effective strategy to be applied to increase physical activity and to improve the related ability. Therefore, the researcher according to the process and the results of the study gives the conclusion and suggestions founded on this research, which serves as reference for the educational application and related researches.
