Does the Teacher Make a Difference? A Study on the Correlation between Learners' Perceptions of Their Teachers and Their Reactions to the Topics Covered during the Course.
Kubrusly, M. Helena
A study of the relationship of the student-teacher interaction and student reactions to course content found that the student perceptions of the enjoyment, difficulty, and usefulness of the different course components were positively correlated with their perceptions of the different tutors teaching those components. The students' reactions to course content were measured on a pre- and post-course questionnaire, and their perceptions of the teachers were measured with a repertory grid technique eliciting comparisons of constructs as they related to the three teachers and six other students. The use of this research method was not found to present any new problems. (MSE)
