Summary

Perceptions of Indiana University teachers of noncredit courses for adults and implications for faculty development programming were assessed. Of the 26 randomly selected instructors from the nine regional campuses, 73 percent identified their full-time occupation as being business-related, 19 percent were part- or full-time faculty, and 8 percent taught on the elementary or secondary level. Respondents provided information concerning: the names of the courses they were teaching; previous teaching experience; their selection as course instructors; perceived reasons students chose the courses; the general background of students (age, educational background, occupation); teaching methods employed; student roles/activities; perceived teaching strengths and weaknesses; and the effectiveness of the university in meeting their needs as noncredit teachers. It was found that the diverse backgrounds of adult learners provided the greatest challenge to the noncredit instructor. Recommendations include that: noncredit instructors should be provided information on the characteristics of adult learners; communication between teachers and administrators should be improved; and the university should better promote noncredit programs and recruit students.
