Abstract


Faculty members’ perceptions of teaching efficacy have a positive influence on teaching performance and students’ learning achievement. Even less is known about university faculty teaching efficacy in the countries like Vietnam. This study was to investigate university faculties’ perceptions of teaching efficacy in Vietnamese higher education and their relation to faculty members’ demography. A questionnaire measuring 27 items of six factors of teaching efficacy was distributed to 124 university faculty members in Vietnam. The results showed that the most faculty members were highly measured with their teaching efficacy. Different factors of demography have different influences towards teaching efficacy. Almost demography factors, except length of employment factor, of gender, marital status, age groups, academic rank, and educational attainment were significant differences in faculty teaching efficacy. The study’s implications for university management are also discussed.
