QUOTE: Teaching effectiveness in higher education

A meta-analysis of the literature on teaching effectiveness in higher education has been undertaken. The study noted concerns from higher education, politicians and business people that higher education was failing to meet society's requirements for well-educated citizens. The study concluded that although faculty may aspire to develop students' thinking skills, in practice they tend to aim at facts and concepts in the disciplines, at the lowest cognitive levels, rather than development of intellect or values
