ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
The purpose of this quantitative correlational study was to investigate the relationship of sociodemographic and personality traits to faculty perceptions and motivations regarding the use of online instruction in radiologic and imaging sciences. A faculty perception and motivations survey of online instruction was administered online in order to gather responses from the target audience of radiologic and imaging science program directors, clinical coordinators, and clinical and/or didactic faculty in a southern state to identify specific perceptions and motivations toward the use of online instruction to expand the teaching of radiologic and imaging sciences. Correlation and regression analysis were done to analyze the responses gathered from the online survey using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) software program. Study results indicated that there is no significant relationship between (a) sociodemographic characteristics and faculty motivation regarding the use of online instruction, (b) personality traits and faculty motivation regarding the use of online instruction, (c) sociodemographic characteristics and faculty perception regarding the use of online instruction, and (d) personality traits and faculty perception regarding the use of online instruction. The fact that there is a limited amount of research focusing on demographic characteristics and personality traits influencing faculty perceptions and motivations regarding the use of online instruction in radiologic and imaging science, the insights gathered from this study could increase the understanding on the relationship between the stated variables.
