Public Trust, Research Activity, and the Ideal of Service to Students as Clients of Teaching.
Braxton, John M.; Berger, Joseph B.
New Directions for Institutional Research, n90 p79-91 Sum 1996
A summary of articles on the relationship between faculty research and college teaching finds that faculty scholarship does not adversely affect teaching norms, teacher effectiveness, student cognitive development, or currency of course content. However, research activity affects two teaching dimensions detrimentally: rigor of course examinations and prompt feedback to students. Implications for administrators, institutional researchers, and scholars are considered. (MSE)
