Michel, Jessica Ostrow; Chadi, Diana; Jimenez, Marisol; Campbell, Corbin M. – Innovative Higher Education, 2018
The American professoriate is shifting its majority makeup from tenure track to non-tenure track faculty members. Less known, though, is what the implications of this shift are for students' course experiences. We sought to examine the extent to which the teaching practices, with regard to academic rigor and cognitively responsive teaching, differ…

O'Connell, Marcia L.; Morrison, Janet A. – Innovative Higher Education, 2018
At many primarily undergraduate institutions, biology faculty members mentor student research collaborators. If publication is required for tenure and promotion, this research is expected to result in periodic publications; and publication rates are a common metric used to assess faculty productivity. However, we have uncovered a highly…

Lai, Kwok-Wing; Smith, Lee A. – Innovative Higher Education, 2018
Little research has been conducted in higher education settings that focuses on how tertiary educators understand informal learning or on their role in fostering students' informal learning to facilitate formal learning. In this article we partially fill this knowledge gap by reporting findings from a case study exploring how 30 New Zealand…
