Telling the Second Half of the Story: Linking Academic Development to Student Experience of Learning
McAlpine, Lynn; Oviedo, Gloria Berdugo; Emrick, Andrea
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v33 n6 p661-673 Dec 2008
Common measures used by academic developers, e.g. lecturer satisfaction with workshops, are necessary but insufficient indicators of impact since they tell only the first half of the story. Documenting whether positive responses translate into teaching actions that influence students is the second half of the story. In this study, the project team undertook to document this second half: the influence of a workshop for lecturers on student experience of learning in courses designed during the workshop. This paper describes the results of the study and also examines the implications--the difficulties and value of reconciling the desirable with the do-able in undertaking studies such as this. (Contains 8 tables and 3 notes.)
