Egan, Kathryn Smoot
A study considered women in broadcast communications academe who achieve their own purposes to have one of two epistemological perspectives: constructivist or proceduralist (non-constructivist). Women in broadcast academe were surveyed (N=428) and interviewed in depth (N=14) to measure epistemological perspectives and mentoring experiences. The women studied, most of whom were mentored, believe they can succeed in academe on their own terms, according to their dreams and self images. They tend to be constructivists, or proceduralists guided by womeone they trust to identify their personal reward system, within academe. (Two tables of data are included. Contains 19 references.)
