The Research versus Teaching Debate: Untangling the Relationships.
Olsen, Deborah; Simmons, Ada
New Directions for Institutional Research, n90 p31-39 Sum 1996
A study at a research university on the relationship between faculty research productivity, specific instructional practices, and faculty-student contact found that faculty with strong research profiles did not avoid teaching low-level undergraduate courses, rely on lecture over active learning techniques, or use multiple-choice tests more often than others, but they also did not show better pedagogical skills.
