Selmer, Jan; Jonasson, Charlotte; Lauring, Jakob – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2014
In educational studies much attention has been directed to engagement as a precondition for positive student outcomes. Very few studies, however, have focused on the engagement of the faculty members. This is a regrettable omission because engagement has been argued to lead to more satisfied, more productive and healthier faculty members. In this…
