Postsecondary Teaching and Learning Issues in Search of Researchers. A Working Paper.
Vogel, Carol D.; Stark, Joan S.
In this working paper on needed research issues, areas of inquiry are grouped in a way that parallels the programs of the National Center for Research in Postsecondary Teaching and Learning (NCRIPTAL); additional categories are also cited. The following topics are addressed: (1) issues of student learning (participation and involvement, intellectual development, attributes and learning styles, and assessing outcomes); (2) curricular issues (models and designs, general education versus specialization; liberal education versus vocational study; and teaching and learning across the curriculum); (3) studies of teaching and of the faculty (faculty career preparation and development, selection and assessment, knowledge and expertise); (4) the organizational context for teaching and learning (leadership, effectiveness, structures and management practices, institutional linkages, and external influences); (5) the technological information environment (general impact, impact on learning, and impact on access to information and literacy); and (6) general research issues (research frameworks; definitions, measures, and analysis of student characteristics and outcomes; and longitudinal studies and databases). Each topic section includes selected references for institutional leaders, and for researchers. (LB)
