    Abstract

    This report develops and analyses the reliability and validity of a Swedish translation of the Trigwell and Prosser Approaches to Teaching Inventory (ATI) using data collected from academics in the Faculty of Technology and Natural Sciences at Uppsala University Sweden. The first part of the report describes the development and validation of a Swedish translation of the ATI. The Swedish instrument structure is analysed using factor analysis and a two factor model derived that confirms the structure reported earlier by Prosser and Trigwell. The constructs proposed by Prosser and Trigwell are also tested by computing cronbach alphas. We then stratify the data and perform statistical comparisons attempting to identify statistically significant differences in the subscales of the ATI based on gender, age, role in the organisation, and participation in courses in theory and practice of higher education.
