Implementing Research in Professional Higher Education: Factors That Influence Lecturers' Perceptions
Griffioen, Didi M. E.; de Jong, Uulkje
Educational Management Administration & Leadership, v43 n4 p626-645 Jul 2015
Higher professional education in Europe has changed from teaching-only institutes to hybrids of teaching and research. The purpose of this study was to examine factors that influence the judgements of lecturers about new organisational goals and perceptions of their new research-related competencies. Lecturers' judgements of new organisational goals and self-efficacy related to newly expected competencies were modelled in a bio-ecological model. Findings show that lecturers' perceptions of self-efficacy can be influenced by an open organisational culture, while lecturers' judgements of new organisational goals can be influenced by decision-making systems. The professional development of lecturers through formal education and participation in research influences both self-efficacy and judgements. Hence, direct executive managers have three steering mechanisms by which they can influence lecturers' perceptions during the implementation of new organisational activities: a) Educational Policy, b) Management Policy and c) Developmental Policy. Implications are discussed.
