Educational Developers' Experiences of Negative Faculty Attitudes towards Teaching and Development--An International Survey
Ekecrantz, Stefan; Schwieler, Elias
Journal of Faculty Development, v30 n3 p21-29 Fall 2016
In this article, results from an international survey on the experiences of educational developers' experiences of teachers' attitudes, emotions, and normative values in higher education are presented. Teacher-student relationships have a substantial impact on student learning and the general learning climate, but have still received relatively little attention in higher education research. In particular, an area that needs better understanding is negative attitudes regarding teaching and students. For this article, 110 veteran researchers/lecturers in eight countries currently working in educational development were asked to share their experiences of such attitudes, emotions, and normative values among staff. The results clearly suggest that educational developers need strategies to address such challenges.
