Randall Lavender: 2007-08 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

I received a Faculty Development grant in Fall 2007 to assist with data handling related to a research project I conducted into aspects of student socio-cognitive makeup, its potential impact on teaching methodology, and ways to improve teaching of college art and design based on qualitative and quantitative findings.

The grant funds helped me conduct IRB-approved survey research using student subjects by affording part-time clerical support to score and enter data at three stages during the 2007-08 academic year. The results of this study are incorporated into an academic journal article, titled Teaching the Whole Student: Perceived Academic Control in College Art Instruction. This article, chronicling the first study of perceived academic control and its impact on first-year art student success, is pending publication. [Updated: Article was published, see citation below]
