University Teacher Educators' Research Engagement: Perspectives from Saudi Arabia
Borg, Simon; Alshumaimeri, Yousif
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v28 n3 p347-356 Apr 2012
This paper examines university teacher educators' engagement with and in educational research. Survey results collected from eighty-two teacher educators at a leading university in Saudi Arabia pointed to modest levels of research activity and also suggested that these individuals held largely technical views of what research is. Their assessments of their institutional research culture also signalled a perceived gap between the research productivity expected of them and the support they received from their university. The implications of these findings for promoting research activity among university teacher educators, where this is considered desirable, are discussed. (Contains 2 figures and 9 tables.)
