This study explored whether university students' perceptions of the social environment are influenced by professors' classroom teaching innovations. Data from 559 university students in 13 innovative disciplines within 11 schools at the University of Seville, Spain, were used. First, factor analytic procedures with varimax rotation were used to generate a seven-factor solution that accounted for 59% of the variance. Second, using hierarchical linear modeling, it was found that the average student's perception of interest is also influenced by prior knowledge. Implications for further research on university teaching and innovation assessment are discussed. Two appendixes contain sample questionnaires. (SLD)
