Eimers, Mardy T.
Thought & Action, v13 n2 p125-42 Fall 1997
A study of 20 highly selective liberal arts colleges explored how faculty's intrinsic enjoyment of work, satisfaction with extrinsic recognition from work, and satisfaction or dissatisfaction with job conditions contribute to both teaching and research effectiveness, and what job aspects help explain a faculty member's intrinsic enjoyment of teaching and research. The questionnaire used and resulting data summaries are appended. (MSE)
