Gore, Jonathan; Sweet, Charlie; Blythe, Hal; Carpenter, Russell; Tichenor, Damon – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2019
The purpose of this study was to examine differences in student perceptions of instructor and course characteristics for courses that students deemed to be high in learning versus high in enjoyment. Realizing that students differ from faculty in how they view the traits of a highly effective instructor, the authors created a survey of student…

Lovvorn, Al S.; Timmerman, John E. – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2019
The flipped classroom, based on constructivist theory, focuses on acquiring strengths within a discipline rather than knowledge transmission. While the process of flipping the classroom has been extensively explored, little discussion has followed concerning how to effectively evaluate student learning in this new teaching paradigm. The authors…

Allendoerfer, Cheryl; Veilleux, Nanette; Floyd-Smith, Tamara; Plett, Melani; Wilson, Denise; Bates, Rebecca; Jones, Diane Carlson – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2019
This study examines student-faculty relationships at a small women's college where STEM students rely almost exclusively on faculty members for academic support. Students at comparison schools, including two of similar size, rely primarily on peer study groups. To understand this difference, students and faculty interviews, classroom observations,…

Claussen, Stephanie A.; Radhakrishnan, Dhinesh; Haney, Casey L.; Kimani, Sally N.; Wairimu, Esther; Kimutai, Wesley; DeBoer, Jennifer – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2019
Engineering has a history rife with community-based projects in which the engineers prioritize their own interests and outcomes over those of the community with which they work, at great detriment to the community. Short-term engineering study abroad trips, especially those which take place in low- or middle-income countries and have a clear…

Pai, Grace; Wilson, Katie – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2019
The literature on assessing education abroad is dominated by studies using pre-/post-survey instruments to measure student growth across broad dimensions like global perspectives or intercultural competencies. Most studies also focus on study abroad programs in private, four-year or graduate schools. There is limited research assessing programs in…

Jones, Daniel C.; Campbell, Michelle M.; Acheson, Kris – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2019
Evidence suggests that facilitated interventions in study abroad enhance gains in intercultural development, but many recent studies are not generalizable due to small numbers and lack of experimental design. In this study, subjects received individual or small-group interventions online in a course with trained intercultural mentors. The authors…

Wright, Mary C.; Wiley, Sandra; Van Gent, Elona; Huerta, Monica – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2019
Although the number of international experience requirements (IER) for college students is growing, there is limited research on their impact. The authors present a four-year study of the impact on an IER at the University of Michigan's Penny W. Stamps School of Art and Design, comparing outcomes for required and non-required cohorts. Evaluation…

Butler, Paige E. – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2019
The author argues that models of culture shock present a crisis response to cultural encounters and neglect key theories of student development. Drawing from interdisciplinary research, she presents a new model, the Cultural Transitions Model (CTM), to better support students as they encounter cultural transitions during study abroad. The CTM…

Strassle, Carla G.; Verrecchia, P.J. – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2019
Much of the research on uncivil behavior in the college/university classroom has focused on individual academic fields of study and been conducted at one, typically public, institution. This study examined perceptions of classroom incivility of faculty members (N = 166) from both public and private two- and four year institutions. The authors…

Tassoni, John Paul – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2019
This article describes a studio approach to faculty development in a First-Year Seminar (FYS) program. The studio concept helps structure and theorize faculty development efforts in the program. Meeting for regular in-term reflections on their FYSs, instructors collectively generate responses to teaching challenges specific to the program as well…
