The development of an instrument to assess the impact of media use and active learning on faculty performance

Abstract

1. ABSTRACT The competition fostered in today’s environment is demanding increased accountability of collegiate instructors and reevaluation of traditional teaching methods. Without reliabIe and valid instructional measurement systems, it is virtually impossible to benchmark new techniques or identify effective instructors. In addition, these measures need to be comprehensive, covering new advances in teaching methods, advances in concepts like active learning, as well as the effect of technologies or media on education. This research describes the development of a faculty evaluation instrument that incorporates the increasingly important contacts of active learning and media use. Structural equation modeling is used to assess reliability and construct and discriminant validity. The results confirm the importance of five historically strong components of teaching, as well as support the importance of media use and active learning within an academic environment.
