The Teaching and Learning Transaction in Higher Education: A Study of Excellent Professors and Their Students.
Andrews, J.; And Others
Teaching in Higher Education, v1 n1 p81-103 1996
A four-phase study identified factors in teaching excellence, compared the teaching strategies of university faculty across disciplines, and compared these with the learning processes of students in their first and third years. Results suggest excellent professors prefer a deep approach to teaching, incongruent with students' more common surface approach. Variables affecting this discrepancy are considered. (Author/MSE)
