Motivating Factors of Florida Community and State College Information Technology Faculty
Payne, Wendy Louise
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, The University of West Florida
In this study the core job characteristics that contribute to the internal motivational factors and job satisfaction of information technology faculty members working at a community or state college in Florida were investigated. Fifty-four information technology faculty members working at a community or state college in Florida completed the Job Diagnostic Survey. Analysis of the study results indicated there were significant relationships between the core job dimensions and the information technology faculty members' motivating potential score; however, there were no relationships between the information technology faculty member's demographics and their motivating potential score. The lack of a relationship between the demographics and the motivating potential score suggests that there are no prominent demographic factors for an ideal information technology faculty member. The significant relationship between the core job dimensions and the motivating potential score indicates the information technology faculty members' job contains the core job dimensions which can lead to high internal motivation. Therefore, it is critical that community and state college administrators, deans, and division chairs work with faculty to redesign faculty job characteristics, in order to increase retention and to improve recruiting efforts for new information technology faculty members.
