Faculty Do Matter: The Role of College Faculty in Student Learning and Engagement
Umbach, Paul D.; Wawrzynski, Matthew R.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Forum of the Association for Institutional Research (AIR) (44th, Boston, MA, May 28-Jun 2, 2004)
This study uses two national data sets to explore the relationship between faculty practices and student engagement. Our findings suggest that students report higher levels of engagement and learning at institutions where faculty members use active and collaborative learning techniques, engage students in experiences, emphasize higher-order cognitive activities in the classroom, interact with students, challenge students academically, and value enriching educational experiences. In general, faculty at liberal arts colleges are the most likely to engage their students. (Contains 7 tables and 1 appendix.)
