Keywords:technology use, academic performance, research practice, graduate students, re-search training program
This study aims to examine graduate students’ academic experiences in conducting scientific research activities at graduate schools, which have been impacted by the use of information and communication technologies. They advance their experiences by taking courses, conducting research, assisting in the research of their advisors, and teaching through the adoption of digital technologies. The data were collected from graduate students who enrolled at five universities in metropolitan areas of South Korea. The results of the quantitative analysis in this study are based on the answers of 188 graduate students who responded via an online survey regarding their individual research activities and use of technology. Our results revealed that graduate students who engaged in research projects, courses involving research methods, and courses based on integrated technology use had significantly higher mean scores for the use of technology in scientific research activities.
