Abstract

Many universities undertake mixed learning to meet the required needs. Mixed learning is a blend of F2F classroom education and online learning education. The strength of mixed learning is that it supports student cognitive styles more than non-mixed learning. The right mix of mixed learning provides more constructive and conducive learning. Meanwhile, the programming language is the primary skill that students must master to create computer application programs. The question is: Is there an effect on student cognitive style and learning methods on mixed material 30% F2F and 70% asynchronous online and on the contrary mixture on student programming skills? Therefore, this study aims to determine the effect of reciprocal interaction between cognitive styles and mixed learning methods on programming skill achievement. This research method is experimental research. The study found that: Although there is no difference in the achievement of student learning skills based on tests on mixed learning methods, further test on student cognitive styles found that there are differences in the achievement of student learning skills in mixed learning methods; students with auditory and visual cognitive style who learn with mixed learning-2 have better programming skill achievement than students with auditory cognitive style who learn with mixed learning-2; students with kinesthetic and visual cognitive styles who learn with mixed learning-2 have superior programming skill achievement compared to students with kinesthetic cognitive styles who learn with mixed learning-1. The research novelty is: There has been no previous research on the reciprocal effect of cognitive styles and mixed learning methods with a mixture of 30% F2F and 70% online and vice versa.
