Affinity Disciplines and the Use of Principles of Good Practice for Undergraduate Education.
Braxton, John M.; Olsen, Deborah; Simmons, Ada
Research in Higher Education, v39 n3 p299-318 Jun 1998
Academic disciplines with soft paradigmatic development have greater affinity for practices designed to improve undergraduate education than do hard paradigmatic disciplines. A study extends this hypothesis to the seven principles of good practice, garnering empirical support for four principles: encouragement of faculty-student contact; encouragement of active learning; communication of high expectations; respect for diverse talents and ways of knowing.
