Examining effective faculty practice: Teaching clarity and student engagement


To Improve the Academy: Resources for Faculty, Instructional, and Organizational Development

About This Project

This study explores the frequency of student exposure to teaching clarity behaviors and the extent to which these behaviors relate to student engagement, deep approaches to learning, and students’ self-reports of gains in college. We found that students exposed to more clear teaching behaviors, such as explaining course goals and requirements, had positive relationships with engagement outcomes. For instance, there were particularly strong relationships between students’ exposure to clear teaching behaviors and students’ sense of campus support and self-reports of gains.
