Distance education: A measurement of job satisfaction of full-time business faculty in Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs at accredited colleges of business

by Gould, Marie, Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2007, 164 pages; 3264278


This study had two purposes (a) to determine if there is a difference in the level of job satisfaction from teaching in a traditional classroom versus teaching an asynchronous distance education course, and (b) to determine whether job satisfaction among full-time faculty members in ACBSP-accredited colleges of business who teach asynchronous distance courses differs depending on certain characteristics. Data was collected via the Internet using the Job Descriptive Index, then compared to determine any significant difference in any of the categories. The paired sample test was used to complete this analysis. Descriptive statistics, independent t tests, and ANOVA were used to determine if there were significant differences among faculty members in different characteristic categories.
