The positive attitude approach for teaching in higher education: An untrodden path for policy and practice [link]Website  abstract   bibtex   
This article reports on a study in which a new conceptual framework for fostering a positive attitude towards teaching in higher education (PATTHE) was developed. The PATTHE framework builds on a holistic four-dimensional theoretical concept and is not limited by the specificity of teaching within a particular discipline or national higher education contexts. The four dimensions of PATTHE pertain to (1) emotional dimension, (2) professional development, (3) constructivist approaches to teaching, and (4) the teaching and research nexus ; all of which are relevant for empowering quality teaching at personal, institutional and/or national higher education policy levels. The purpose of our study was to test and analyse this conceptual framework. Creative qualitative research methods were used including identification of keywords, evoking participant opinions through visual materials, reactions to vignettes, and by documenting discussions regarding the proposed PATTHE conceptual framework. A purposive and critically informed approach was used for the selection of twelve higher education experts as research participants. Responses from the selected education developers were collected through an online protocol system. Research results revealed that participant reflections on a positive attitude towards teaching showed a high level of agreement with the proposed conceptual framework ; the proposed theoretical concept is thereby deemed well-constructed and acceptable with minimal extensions.
