The promotion of students’ mobility in the EU has had a huge impact in recent years in Lithuania, which has now become one of the countries with more students going abroad on an Erasmus programme. Students from different cultures come together to study in host countries bringing with them different levels of language skills as well as expectations and beliefs of how they should be taught together. In other words, they contribute to the whole with their own academic, cultural and linguistic input. Rapid changes in the technological area challenge educational traditions in teaching. ICT application for teaching/learning purposes is becoming one of the major issues of contemporary education. Information technologies provide with a variety of opportunities and forms of learning; therefore it is a highly important factor, influencing learning.
The authors of the article aim to present Erasmus Exchange students’ experience and attitudes to types of study techniques applied in different educational institutions of host countries. The teachers’ considerations and observations are based on the research findings obtained through the questionnaire survey. The conducted research focuses on Erasmus Exchange Students’ self-evaluation of their study techniques, ICT application and reflections about the challenges they have encountered in study process. For collection of data the qualitative research method was applied. The paper also addresses a very important issue of interrelation between study techniques and their educational aims to motivate students in study process.
