College Instructors' Sense of Teaching and Collective Efficacy
Fives, Helenrose; Looney, Lisa
International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, v20 n2 p182-191 2009
The purpose of this study was to provide an exploratory investigation of college-level instructors' sense of teaching and collective efficacy. We investigated the relations of teacher- and collective-efficacy with a series of variables: experience, professional level, age, gender, academic domain (for teacher-efficacy only), and academic department (for collective-efficacy only) as well as the relationship between collective- and teacher-efficacy. Data from 117 graduate students, lecturers, and faculty were analyzed. Differences in teacher-efficacy were found with respect to gender and academic domain. Differences in collective-efficacy were not found across departments, experience levels, or professional levels. Teacher-efficacy was significantly correlated with collective-efficacy.
