ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Arkansas State University
A study was conducted to investigate the teaching methods valued and used by faculty in Arkansas public higher education institutions at the freshman and sophomore levels. The participants were 336 teachers who responded to a 21 item survey distributed to college teachers in Arkansas. The study sought to collect relevant demographic data and to compare value and implementation of teaching strategies identified in Joyce, Weil, and Calhoun's "Models of Teaching," (7th ed.). Two instruments were used where participants were asked on one survey to rate the value they placed on selected teaching strategies. On a second survey, a different set of participants were asked to rate their day-to-day implementation of the same teaching strategies. Statistical methods were used to determine if significant differences existed between the two-year and four-year teachers in terms of their use and value of teaching strategies. Value mean scores were higher than implementation mean scores; and, research indicated that there was one statistically significant difference to which teachers of freshmen and sophomores in two-year and four-year institutions in Arkansas with and without experience teaching in a P-12 setting value various teaching strategies. One statistically significant difference was also revealed in the implementation of the various teaching strategies when teachers with and without a P-12 teaching experience was a factor.
