Roeger, Elizabeth Bradford
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Much has been written about the value of passionate teaching and about passionate teachers. This qualitative phenomenological study examines how community college students perceive passionate teaching. The research results identify qualities of learning intimacy: caring, quality of instruction, zest, and discipline expertise and passionate commitment to love of self, academics, and career. Chapters 1-3 describe the value of studying teacher passion and its effects on learning, previous literature, and the methodology for the study. Chapter 4 describes the results and implications for future research and faculty development. Appendix H-K give thick descriptions of the data stories for the students and their passionate teachers.
