The point of departure for this article is Chickering and Gamson's (1987) Seven Principles For Good Practice in Undergraduate Education. The author revisits these principles, draws out some examples of what they look like in practice, and then surveys academic staff and alumni on the importance of these examples, thus describing the relevance of these principles today. Not surprisingly all seven principles were rated as important. But the quantitative results don't really matter because (frustratingly) the sample size and selection are so inadequate. Still, it's an interesting discussion of some old theory that might maybe motivate someone to mount a similar study with a truly representative sample size.
