Teaching, Research, and Service: The Satisfiers of Education Faculty at Western Michigan University.
Serafin, Ana Gil
This report investigated a random sample of 54 (divided equally between male and female) full-time regular education faculty actively engaged in classroom activities at Western Michigan University in Venezuelan postsecondary education to learn: (1) their satisfaction levels with their role functions of teaching, research, and service; and (2) if there were differences between male and female respondents regarding teaching, research, and service. Data were collected using the English version of the Faculty Satisfaction Questionnaire. Two major hypotheses were tested using a correlation coefficient and the t-test for differences. Significant differences were found between female and male respondents when they were asked about their satisfaction with teaching with males expressing more satisfaction with their teaching role. No differences were detected regarding satisfaction with research and service in either group. Both males and females seemed equally satisfied with their research activities and with their service involvement. The correlations discovered support the literature in which positive and low correlations have been reported between teaching and research. Service remained undefined. Contains 18 references. (GLR)
