ARIZA, Tania; QUEVEDO-BLASCO, Raúl  and  BUELA-CASAL, Gualberto. Satisfaction of Social and Legal Sciences teachers with the introduction of the European Higher Education Area. The European Journal of Psychology Applied to Legal Context [online]. 2014, vol.6, n.1, pp.9-16. ISSN 1989-4007.

University teachers are one of the main figures in the European convergence process, but their attitude towards the reform of Spanish university studies is unknown. Therefore, the objective of this study is to evaluate the satisfaction of Social and Legal Sciences teachers towards the introduction of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). The sample was made up of 3,068 teachers from Spanish public universities, who teach in the said field. An online questionnaire was created for this purpose, with questions relating to the EHEA, teacher tasks and training, as well as aspects related to methodology and the teaching and learning process, amongst others. Cronbach's alpha coefficient was .81. It is a population-based, descriptive study using a cross-sectional survey with a probability sample. In the results it can be observed that only 9.3% of teachers are satisfied with the adaptation of higher education to the EHEA. Finally, the limitations faced by teaching staff in consolidating this process will be discussed.
