A Study of the Predictive Relationships between Faculty Engagement, Learner Satisfaction and Outcomes in Multiple Learning Delivery Modes
IJDET Volume 10, Number 1, ISSN 1539-3100 Publisher: IGI Global
This study assessed the predictive relationships between faculty engagement, learner satisfaction, and outcomes across multiple learning delivery modes (LDMs). Participants were enrolled in courses with the options of three learning delivery modes: face-to-face, satellite broadcasting, and live video-streaming. The predictive relationship between faculty engagement and student satisfaction remained constant across the three learning delivery mode groups. In addition, faculty engagement was an effective predictor for learner satisfaction, regardless of LDM. Similarly, the predictive relationship between faculty engagement and learning outcomes as measured by final grades remained constant. The results also suggested that an increase in the faculty engagement score was accompanied by an increased probability of obtaining a better course final grade. Overall, findings from the study supported the importance of faculty engagement in student learning outcomes and satisfaction regardless of the LDM. (Contains 5 tables.)
