Improving undergraduate education through faculty development by Kenneth E Eble( Book )

9 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faculty development programs in different types of colleges are considered, along with support of faculty development by private foundations, including the Bush Foundation's Faculty Development Program. The evolution of faculty development in institutions in the United States is traced, with emphasis on efforts in the last 15 years. A literature review covers various developmental activities (instructional, curricular, and organizational). Descriptions are provided of faculty development programs at 18 private and 12 public colleges and universities; 2 small and 3 medium-sized liberal arts colleges; 2 selective and church-related liberal arts colleges; and 2 large public universities. The effectiveness of faculty development programs is analyzed from a number of perspectives. Faculty members are examined across the sample of institutions using a questionnaire circulated to a random sample of the entire faculty cohort. Evaluation methods are described in detail, and difficulties encountered in program evaluation are identified. A step-by-step evaluation of a faculty leave program is provided as an example. Trends in faculty development and ways to build programs constructively in the future are addressed, with attention to improving undergraduate education. The faculty questionnaire is appended. (Sw)

Undergraduate curricula in psychology; report of the Michigan conference supported by the National Science Foundation by University of Michigan( Book )

4 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In organizing the report, we have first described what the current curricula in psychology are, as far as we were able to discover by a questionnaire survey and catalog analysis. We have then discussed several kinds of pressures impinging on those who may be responsible for a curriculum, following this with a more detailed exposition of our position with respect to one such pressure: that for preprofessional and vocational training. Two specialized topics are next treated--the beginning course, and the experimental-statistical area. As soon as we had some closure on the problems of the beginning course, experimental psychology, and statistics, we felt more comfortable about discussing the general nature of the curriculum for the psychology major. We became convinced of the necessity, and possibly even the desirability, of allowing for different curricular patterns in different settings. Accordingly, in Chapter Seven we have proposed three types of general outlines for curricula and tried to indicate what considerations might lead to the adoption of each. Finally, in Chapter Eight, we have suggested some directions for research, growing largely out of the deficiencies we encountered when we looked for data to help us answer some of the questions that formed the nucleus of our concerns"--Introduction.

Improving teaching effectiveness by Wilbert James McKeachie( Book )

4 editions published between 1970 and 1971 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This prep package attempts to provide answers to some basic questions on teaching. The topics considered are class size, lectures versus discussions, student versus instructor-centered teaching, student versus teacher-led discussions, print material and programmed learning, independent study, simulation, and student characteristics of intelligence, cognitive style, authoritarianism, sociability, affiliation, anxiety, and sex. The conclusions indicate that small classes are probably more effective than large, discussions more effective than lectures, and student-centered discussions more effective than instructor-centered discussions for the goals of retention, application, problem solving, attitude change, and motivation for further learning. There is also some evidence that different teaching methods work well for differing types of students. One implication of the findings is that there should be a variety of teaching methods used within a college, and teachers should develop a repertoire of skills. Students should be offered various options within a course to maximize their motivation and learning. There is also a bibliography of 254 items. (Mbm)
Research on the characteristics of effective college teaching by Wilbert James McKeachie( Book )

5 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effects of differing teacher characteristics and of various student characteristics upon learning in college were measured by an instrument called the "criteria test," which contained subtests for measuring several levels of cognitive course outcomes as functions of interactions among methods of teaching, teacher personality, and student personality. Sixteen objectives of an undergraduate, general psychology course were to be used in this evaluation. Only nine of these, however, proved to be of significant importance after opinions were gathered from psychology instructors throughout the united states. Available data were also collected on some specific teaching methods and the achievement motivation, affiliation motivation, and anxiety of students who were exposed to them. In addition, personality measures were administered to teachers and students, and observations were made of students' and teachers' responses in the classroom. All of these factors were used in the makeup and administration of the "criteria test." After evaluating all test information the investigator found no single variable or combination of variables to be as powerful as intellectual ability in accounting for student achievement in college. Student ratings of teacher characteristics, too, were suggested as excellent measures for teacher effectiveness and, thus, student performance. Personality compatibilities were also significantly related to positive student attitudes and achievement. (Jh)

Designed to present some of the current research on student motivation, cognition, and learning, this book serves as a festschrift for Wilbert J. McKeachie who has been a leading figure in college teaching and learning. The contributions to this volume were written by former students, colleagues and friends. A common focus on a general or social cognitive view of learning is shared throughout the volume, but there are significant differences in the perspectives the researchers bring to bear on the issues. They provide an excellent cross-section of current thinking and research on gen
