MetadataShow full item record
The views of the emotional experiences of 32 University of Zimbabwe lecturers are explored in this paper with a view to finding out the root causes of brain-drain in Zimbabwe. Interviews based on the lecturers’ emotional experiences and centred around the themes reflecting the extent to which the lecturers found their working environment filled with experiences of distress or of pleasure and the extent to which they felt their professional development was affected by their emotions were conducted. Suggestions on how professional development could address the issues arising in order to allow lecturers to contribute to a fuller emotional commitment to education are made.
