Characteristics of Effective Teachers: A Descriptive Study of Perceptions of Faculty and Deaf College Students.
Lang, Harry G.; And Others
The goal of the study described here is to develop a research agenda for more in-depth analyses of the relation certain teaching characteristics may have to student outcomes. Rating and ranking scales were designed and administered to examine perceptions about teaching characteristics held by administrators, academic department chairpeople responsible for evaluating teaching, instructional faculty, and deaf college students. The differences in perceptions between supervisors and teachers about characteristics of effective teaching indicate a need for ongoing dialogue, particularly prior to and following classroom observations. In addition, teachers and deaf college students are found to differ in their views of the importance of certain characteristics; discussion with students about these perceptions is suggested. Additional research on particular characteristics of effective teaching based on the findings of this study are recommended. A reference list and five data tables are appended. (Author/LL)
