University Teachers' Experiences of Academic Leadership and Their Approaches to Teaching
Ramsden, Paul; Prosser, Michael; Trigwell, Keith; Martin, Elaine
Learning and Instruction, v17 n2 p140-155 Apr 2007
The study examined associations between university teachers' experiences of academic leadership, their perceptions of a specific academic context and their approaches to teaching in a particular subject that was taught in that context. The sample consisted of 439 lecturers in Australian universities in four fields of study. Lecturers completed surveys of their experiences and approaches. Structural equation models derived from student approaches to learning theory were developed and tested. The experience of leadership for teaching and a collegial commitment to enhancing student learning were found to be associated with the experience of the context of teaching and to lecturers' approaches to teaching.
