Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to report the views of UK marketing educators about critical issues in teaching and learning of university-level marketing education, and to compare these views with the views of other stakeholder groups. Design/methodology/approach – An online survey was administered to members of the UK Academy of Marketing; 51 completed, usable questionnaires were returned. Findings – Respondents believe that teaching international students, plagiarism and providing feedback to students are the three top-priority issues in teaching and learning. Perhaps surprisingly, e-learning and the use of virtual learning environments are considered to be relatively low-priority issues. Research limitations/implications – The low-response rate is a limitation of the study. The study detected some interesting similarities and differences of opinion between marketing academics and deans of business schools, between pre- and post-1992 universities, and between professors/readers and those in lecturing positions. Notably, the lack of agreement between marketing educators and deans over the importance of relating research to teaching (educators allocate this greater importance) and e-learning (deans allocate this greater importance) suggests areas for careful consideration in the development of teaching and learning policies. Originality/value – The paper is unique in examining the views of university-level marketing educators about teaching and learning issues. University marketing educators are an important stakeholder in the marketing education process.
