Perceptions of Nontraditional Students, Teaching and Learning Held by Faculty and Students.
Raven, Marieluise Frei; Jimmerson, Ronald M.
Continuing Higher Education Review, v56 n3 p137-54 Fall 1992
Responses from 153 faculty and 146 undergraduates (including 35 nontraditional students) indicated that faculty viewed nontraditional students as different and better learners. Although faculty said critical thinking/problem solving were top goals, students felt instructors used lecture and emphasized subject matter. Students, especially nontraditionals, rated their curiosity, motivation, and confidence much higher than faculty did. (SK)
