It is widely recognised that a country’s development, in terms of innovation and productivity, is greatly influenced by the character and intensity of interaction between the science and business communities. Despite this importance, there is still a lack of understanding regarding the underlying factors that drive the transfer of knowledge and technology. In particular, only a few empirical studies have addressed the issue of exploring the attitudes and behaviours of academic staff in this process. This paper aims to fill this research caveat. Its main objective is to investigate the influence of academic staff’s socio-demographic and educational characteristics on university-industry collaboration. According to our objectives and to test these hypotheses, we decided on a mixed method. At a first stage, we performed a quantitative study, based on data gathered from a questionnaire applied to the overall population of academic staff at Bragança Polytechnic Institute in Portugal. The empirical study was carried out in 2011 and covered the total population of academic staff at BPI. We received 123 valid questionnaires, yielding a response rate of 23.7%. For data analysis, we applied descriptive statistics and logistic regression. At a second stage...

An important constituent group and a key resource of higher education institutions (HEIs) is the faculty or academic staff. The centrality of the faculty role makes it a primary sculptor of institutional culture and has implications for the quality of the institution and therefore has a major role in achieving the objectives of the institution. Demand for academic staff in higher education has been increasing and may be expected to continue to increase. Moreover the performance of academic staff as teachers and researchers determines much of the student satisfaction and has an impact on student learning. There are many factors that serve to undermine the commitment of academics to their institutions and careers. Job satisfaction is important in revitalizing staff motivation and in keeping their enthusiasm alive. Well motivated academic staff can, with appropriate support, build a national and international reputation for themselves and the institution in the professional areas, in research and in publishing. This paper aims to identify the issues and their impacts on academic staff job satisfaction and motivation within Portuguese higher education institutions reporting an ongoing study financed by the European Union through the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology.

A project was carried out to obtain information on academic staffing in seven African universities, and to analyze the factors influencing academic staff to leave universities in Africa. The report provides detailed analysis and comment on the data, and makes suggestions and recommendations for improvement and policy interventions. The essential factors for improved staff capacity are identified as economic growth and revival, greater autonomy for universities, and the development of diversified sources of funding so as to remove the total dependence of universities on governments for funding. A wide range of staffing policy options are suggested, with the only viable way forward possibly being a "trade-off" between high, competitive salaries, or maintaining existing conditions which provide good leave and travel benefits (in practice as well as theory), a relaxed working environment, and a general lack of accountability. Strong leadership is essential, and reinforced and restructured university personnel offices and programs are crucial. The research environment is vital for viable academic staff recruitment and retention...

In 2002-03 the University of Adelaide funded a study into factors impacting on the adoption and use of web-supported teaching in this research intensive University. The University was committed to continuing face-to-face teaching, aided by websupported teaching. The study included the beliefs and values about web-supported teaching and learning among three groups of University of Adelaide teaching staff: • those who had never used web-supported teaching • those who had adopted the University centrally supported Learning Management System (MyUni) • those who had adopted other web-based learning systems or platforms The reflections of these groups on what would be required to develop their use of MyUni and, for users of other systems, to migrate their courses to MyUni, were encompassed. For those who had used web-supported teaching their observations in relation to the impact of web-supported teaching on their students and on their own teaching were canvassed. Interviews and a survey were conducted. The findings were that more staff valued computers in higher education than were using them, and more staff valued web-based learning in higher education than were adopting it. The principal reasons given were time and workload and staff conceptions of University teaching.; http://www.ascilite.org.au/conferences/adelaide03/program/conf_prog_index.htm

Purpose – The central aim of this study is to incorporate two core personality factors (neuroticism and extroversion) in the job demands-resources (JD-R) model. Design/methodology/approach – It was hypothesized that neuroticism would be most strongly related to the health impairment process, and that extroversion would be most strongly related to the motivational process. The hypotheses were tested in a sample of 3,753 Australian academics, who filled out a questionnaire including job demands and resources, personality, health indicators, and commitment. Findings – Results were generally in line with predictions. Structural equation modeling analyses showed that job demands predicted health impairment, while job resources predicted organizational commitment. Also, neuroticism predicted health impairment, both directly and indirectly through its effect on job demands, while extroversion predicted organizational commitment, both directly and indirectly through its effect on job resources. Research limitations/implications – These findings demonstrate the capacity of the JD-R model to integrate work environment and individual perspectives within a single model of occupational wellbeing. Practical implications – The study shows that working conditions are related to health and commitment...

The forces of globalisation and internationalisation are currently transforming the demographic of Australian universities. A significant feature of this is geographic mobility for both academic staff and students. However, while much of the research focuses on the experiences of international students, very little has been published on the academic staff who relocate from other cultures and countries to work in Australian universities. This paper reflects on the preliminary findings of a study undertaken at The University of Adelaide in South Australia which investigated the experiences of English as an Additional Language (EAL) academics. It considers the concept of cosmopolitanism in the context of the imagined community of the contemporary internationalised academy.; http://wuj.cgpublisher.com/product/pub.173/prod.157; Cally Guerin and Ian Green

PURPOSE: The purpose of this paper is to examine an aspect of the working lives of a group of Australian college of advanced education academic staff who worked at Bendigo College of Advanced Education, one of Australia’s oldest colleges, during the period 1965-1982. DESIGN/METHODOLOGY/ APPROACH: Using extended interviews that were conducted with academic staff in 1982 this paper examines these academic staff’s perspectives on the influence of their own tertiary education and previous employment on their then academic roles. FINDINGS: The academic staff in this study reported that their previous employment was more important in carrying out their academic roles than were other factors such as their tertiary education. Interestingly, current Australian university students, according to university commissioned research, by one research intensive Australian university, also attach more importance to the prior industrial and work experiences of university lecturers as opposed to their research excellence and productivity. ORIGINALITY/VALUE: Using the perspectives from these academic staff of almost 50 years ago, this paper questions the direction of current Australian higher education policies and practices with respect to university staffing and its directives and emphases. This paper provides an important insight into current academic careers and the tension in current academic roles as a result of current higher education policy and practice...

In the last two decades the increasingly globalised tertiary education system has witnessed academic staff and postgraduate students from other countries working and studying in Australian institutions, a situation which is not without its problems (Guilfoyle, 2006; Symons, 2001; Ingelton & Cadman, 2000). Language, isolation, teaching and learning, cultural shock and personal problems are being reported by international academics as factors affecting their work. This has necessitated a rethink of both curricula and assessment practices. Moreover, the diversity of academic staff in tertiary institutions evokes interesting patterns of interaction with other staff, students, learning material and context for learning. This mixed methodology research study explores how international academics from non-English speaking backgrounds at the University of Adelaide experience cultural change, language barriers, academic challenges and differing teaching styles and expectations. The experiences of respondents from diverse geographic, cultural, professional and educational backgrounds are documented. This research paper scrutinizes various types of international academic staff: lecturers, tutors, supervisors across a range of disciplines. Managing the workload and professional development of international academic staff has to take into account the wealth of experience...

Diese Arbeit möchte Lehrende an Hochschulen zu unterstützen, Schlüsselquali-fikationen als Lernziele zu konkretisieren, eine gezielte Auswahl für die eigene Veranstaltung zu treffen und die zur Erreichung der Lehr-/Lernziele notwendigen Inhalte und Methoden abzuleiten. Entwicklungsverantwortlichen kann gezeigt werden, dass die Förderung von Kompetenzen der Studierenden nicht allein in die Verantwortung der einzelnen Lehrpersonen gelegt werden darf, sondern entsprechende Kontexte umfassend zu gestalten sind. Entsprechend der Fragestellung: “Wie gehen Professorinnen mit der Erwartung, Schlüsselqualifikationen zu fördern um?“ konzentriert sich die Arbeit auf die entscheidenden Voraussetzungen bei Lehrenden, ob und in welcher Form ihnen Schlüsselqualifikationen bedeutsam erscheinen, was sie konkret unter diesem Konzept verstehen, welche Möglichkeiten der Förderung sie innerhalb der eigenen Fachveranstaltung sehen, wie sie die Rahmenbedingungen der Hochschule bewerten und wie sie mit Schwierigkeiten bei der Umsetzung umgehen. Es werden drei Typen von Lehrenden herausgearbeitet, die sich hinsichtlich ihrer Haltung gegenüber Schlüsselqualifikationen, ihrer Sichtweise von der eigenen beruflichen Rolle, ihrer Einschätzung der Rahmenbedingungen...

RESUMEN: Las "Tecnologías de la Información y la Comunicación" (TIC) llevan ya mucho tiempo en el "ambiente pedagógico" de la Formación Inicial del Profesorado (FIP) de la Facultad de Educación en la Universidad de Cantabria. Es por ello que en este TFM se ha indagado sobre su impacto didáctico en los procesos de enseñanza-aprendizaje en las materias que constituyen el Grado en Magisterio en Educación Primaria (GMEP), utilizando para ello una metodología cualitativa apoyada en el uso del análisis documental y la entrevista individual. Los resultados demuestran que aunque el profesorado tiene una predisposición positiva hacia su uso y muchos de ellos consideran que poseen suficientes conocimientos TIC para impartir docencia en la FIP, esa capacitación y dominio técnico sigue vertiéndose en un modelo didáctico sustancialmente herramentista bastante apegado todavía a la clase magistral.; ABSTRACT: Information technologies and communication (ITC) take a long time already in the "pedagogic environment" of the Initial Formation of the Academy Staff of the Faculty of Educación in the University Of Cantabria. It is for it that in this TFM learning in the matters that constitute the Degree in Magisterio in Primary Education has been investigated on your didactic impact in the processes of teaching...

Although Mobility is a trendy and an important keyword in education matters, it has been a knowledge tool since the beginning of times, namely the Classical Antiquity, when students were moving from place to place following the masters. Over the time, different types of academic mobility can be found and this tool has been taken both by the education and business sector as almost a compulsory process since the world has gone global. Mobility is, of course, not an end but a means. And as far as academic mobility is concerned it is above all a means to get knowledge, being it theoretical or practical. But why does it still make sense to move from one place to another to get knowledge if never as before we have heaps of information and experiences available around us, either through personal contacts, in books, journals, newspapers or online? With this paper we intend to discuss the purpose of international mobility in the global world of the 21st century as a means to the development of world citizens able to live, work and learn in different and unfamiliar contexts. Based on our own experience as International Coordinator in a Higher Education Institution (HEI) over the last 8 years, on the latest research on academic mobility and still on studies on employability we will show how and why academic mobility can develop skills either in students or in other academic staff that are hardly possible to build in a classroom...

El proceso de enseñanza/aprendizaje ejercido en la docencia universitaria, se pone a prueba cuando se convierte en realidad su práctica, siendo éste el principal motivador para realizar la propuesta pragmática de apalancamiento académico con el personal del Área de Prestaciones Sociales “ARPRE ” de la Secretaria General “SEGEN ” de la Dirección de la Policía Nacional “DIPON ”. Dicha propuesta nace de la necesidad de realizar la praxis del quehacer docente donde se materializa el rol y las competencias adquiridas a lo largo de la especialización en docencia universitaria, para aquellas personas que no se desempeñan laboralmente en el campo de la educación, pero que sí tienen la aspiración de ejercer su especialización, considerando de vital importancia la adquisición de experiencia y la realización práctica de la esencia del docente.; The teaching / learning practiced in university teaching, is tested when it becomes practical reality, which is the main motivator for the pragmatic approach of leveraging academic staff of the Department of Social Services "ARPRE " the secretary General " SEGEN " of the Directorate of the National " DIPON " Police.

En el presente artículo pretendemos realizar una reflexión acerca de los distintos elementos que, desde nuestro punto de vista, inciden y a la vez hacen que tengamos que concebir el cambio como un mecanismo necesario en las universidades. La reflexión se realiza a través de tres parámetros diferentes. El primer parámetro el Contextual que nos lleva a analizar los elementos externos a la propia universidad: los estudiantes de hoy no tienen el mismo perfil del de hace algunos años, las tecnologías de la información y de la comunicación aportan una nueva manera de entender el conocimiento y por último el proceso de convergencia europea que nos lleva a pensar en la universidad desde una perspectiva más amplia. La Institución desde el punto de vista de su organización es un segundo parámetro que no es ajeno a los procesos de cambio que en las universidades se dan. Y por último el propio Profesor que debe enfrentarse a un número cada vez más creciente de retos.; The present paper aims to show a new light on issues that, from our point of view, affect the university while, at the same time, makes us perceive changes as a necessary mechanism of evolution. Three different aspects are discussed: from a contextual point of view we analyze issues external to the University (modern student profiles...

This study examines the relationship between work-related basic need satisfaction and work engagement. Data were obtained from a total of 203 academics who are employed in various universities of Turkey. In this research Work-Related Basic Need Satisfaction Scale and The Turkish Form of Utrecht Work Engagement Scale were utilized. The data were analysed through multiple regression and Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient analysis methods. The findings revealed that the sub-dimensions of work-related basic need satisfaction significantly predicted work engagement. Upper management should improve work conditions of their personnel, which are related with competency, autonomy, and relatedness needs of academics. This way, academic staff will have better efficiency in terms of work engagement, which will also result in higher work adaptation and participation.
