Started Reading MUN 2010 report - Students' Perceptions of Effective Teaching in Higher Education

Yesterday I started reading the following 102 page MUN 2010 report:

Students’ Perceptions of Effective Teaching in Higher Education.
by Jerome Delaney, Albert Johnson, Trudi Johnson & Dennis Treslan
http://www.distance.mun.ca/survey/SPETHE_Final_Report.pdf

NOTE: I reformatted this info from the Abstract -
           I created the bullets from paragraph text.
QUOTE: 

Students identified nine behaviours that are characteristic of effective teaching in both on-campus and distance courses.

Instructors who are effective teachers are
  • respectful of students, 
  • knowledgeable,
  • approachable,
  • engaging,
  • communicative,
  • organized,
  • responsive,
  • professional, and
  • humorous.
Students indicated that the nine characteristics were consistent across modes of delivery.

Respondents to the distance portion of the survey, however, did place different emphasis from the on-campus responses on the significance of each characteristic.
