Policies That Enhance Learning And Teaching, Shannon M. Chance, Pamela L. Eddy, Gavin Duffy, Brian Bowe, Jen Harvey Jan 2017

Policies That Enhance Learning And Teaching, Shannon M. Chance, Pamela L. Eddy, Gavin Duffy, Brian Bowe, Jen Harvey

Pamela L. Eddy

Educational institutions often implement policies with the intention of influencing how learning and teaching occur. Generally, such policies are not as effective as their makers would like; changing the behavior of third-level teachers proves difficult. Nevertheless, a policy instituted in 2006 at the Dublin Institute of Technology has met with success: each newly hired faculty member must have a post-graduate qualification in “Learning and Teaching” or successfully complete one within the first two years of employment. The intention is to build teachers’ knowledge about student-centered pedagogies and their capacity to implement them. As a result of this policy (and associated ...

Learning Styles: A Tool For Faculty Development, Daniel W. Wheeler Feb 2012

Learning Styles: A Tool For Faculty Development, Daniel W. Wheeler

Daniel W. Wheeler

Grasha and Reichmann (1975) developed a questionnaire to assess student learning style. This instrument allows the student to identify preferred styles described as Independent, Dependent, Avoidant, Competitive, Collaborative and Participant. This material has been used in various faculty development programs. Kolb (1976, 1977) developed a self-report instrument, The Learning Style Inventory, to measure perceived learning styles. The instrument uses as its basis the experiential learning model with its origin in the work of Jung (1923) and Lewin (1945). The Learning Style Inventory has been used to assess individual preference for the four identified learning abilities as shown in Figure 1 ...

Going From Zero To Ninty In Faculty Research Productivity, Scott C. Hammond, Susan R. Madsen, James W. Fenton

Susan R. Madsen

I (Susan) am the chair of the Faculty Scholarship Committee in the School of Business and an assistant professor of management at Utah Valley State College. Scott is an active member of this committee (also an assistant professor of management) and Dr. Fenton is the Dean of the school. The three of us arrived at UVSC during the summer of 2002 and have (along with other committee members) worked hard to (1) analyze, design, develop, implement and evaluate a variety of change interventions related to increasing faculty research and publication in our school and (2) facilitate change in the faculty ...

Tracking Faculty Research Productivity: Analysis Of A Survey Instrument, Jeffrey E. Hoyt, Susan R. Madsen, Scott C. Hammond, James W. Fenton

Susan R. Madsen

Research and publication is an inherent value at all institutions of higher education. Regardless of the motivation, faculty research fulfils a vital need for new knowledge generation. The purpose of the current study is to pilot test a survey instrument to evaluate factors that have an affect on faculty research at one public comprehensive four-year institution. The Business School in cooperation with the Office of Institutional Research created an instrument to track changes in faculty motivation and research involvement over time, with an emphasis on submissions and publications as effective outcomes. The survey instrument consists of scales measuring research integration ...
