ABSTRACT

The purpose of the present study was to determine the motivating reasons of the students studying at the Department of Physical Education and Sports in Bingöl University in the year 2017 in nature sports classes and in participating trekking. The questionnaire that was used in the study was applied to a total of 87 people 30 of whom were male and 57 were female who were selected with random sampling method among 260 students in 2017-2018 Academic Year in Bingöl. After the literature review for the scale to be used in the study, it was decided that the Participation in Hiking Motivation Scale (PHMS), whose validity and reliability study was conducted by Ekinci, E. in 2012, was used. To analyze the data obtained, the SSPS 22.0 Statistical Package Program was used and the data were classified. The frequency and percentage distributions were carried out with Anova and t-test. According to the results of the t-test analysis made for the data obtained from the students of Bingöl University Physical Education and Sports School, no significant differences were detected between the students in the 5 dimensions that motivated the participation of the students from teaching, training and management departments of the Bingöl University, Physical Education and Sports High School to nature sports classes and trekking activities in terms of gender. No significant differences were found between the environment where the students grew up and economic status variables (p>0.05). As a result, it was determined that there were no significant differences between the social, time, education, observation and health sub-dimensions in motivating the participation of the students of the Physical Education and Sports High School of Bingöl University; it is possible to argue that social, time, education, observation and health sub-dimensions are not an important factor in motivating the participation the students to nature classes and nature sports. Applicable trainings may be included more in curricula to raise awareness on nature sports and on the environment with recreation education system and discipline to motivate students to participate in nature classes.
