Do experienced college professors, experts in their fields, hold relatively similar epistemological beliefs, or do epistemological views vary regularly by academic discipline? College professors’ epistemological views and implicit theory of learning will impact their teaching practices. An educator will teach, assess, and provide feedback all through their views. What they define as success and student achievement might differ depending on their implicit beliefs of learning. To research and compare epistemological views, structured interviews will be conducted with professors from several disciplines and institutions, and these will be analyzed.
