Do Psychology Students Enjoy Lectures in Class? Relationship with Basic Psychological Needs Satisfaction (Competence, Relatedness, and Autonomy)

Abstract

Flow is an experience of pleasure and enjoyment in doing an activity, characterized by total absorption which entangles awareness and action. Flow is an important asset for college students in carrying out their academic activities. When students experience a flow condition, they will enjoy and get an optimal learning experience. Student motivation also increases and affects better learning outcomes, and prevents students from boredom and academic stress. In fact, not all learners can get a flow experience. An effort that can be made to build flow in the classroom is to allow for autonomy, giving freedom and control to the learner. Autonomy is one of three components of the Basic Psychological Needs (BPN's) that need to be satisfied so individuals can function and grow optimally. This study aims to determine the relationship between flow in the academic and satisfaction with BPN's (competence, relatedness, and autonomy) in college students. Subjects were 292 undergraduate students in the faculty of Psychology, Airlangga University. The data was collected online right before the pandemic using the Basic Psychological Needs Satisfaction at Work Scale and The Flow Inventory for Students. Analysis using spearman's rho shows a positive relationship between satisfaction with BPN's and flow in the academic, with an all significance level 0.000 (p<0.05). The correlation coefficient of the three basic needs were 0.480 (competence), 0.310 (relatedness), and 0.416 (autonomy). Thus, the higher student satisfaction with BPN's followed by higher flow in the academic.
