Factors Contributing to Improved Teaching Performance
McGowan, Whitney Ransom; Graham, Charles R.
Innovative Higher Education, v34 n3 p161-171 Aug 2009
This article focuses upon the quality and scholarship of teaching as it pertains to educational and faculty development. We outline what more than 200 faculty members at one institution have done over a 3-year period to make significant and sustained improvements in their teaching, surprisingly with minimal effort. The top three factors leading to improvement were active/practical learning, teacher/student interactions, and clear expectations/learning outcomes. We provide practical applications for change and suggestions for future research.
