Indicators of College and University Faculty Members' Willingness to Participate in Faculty Development Activities.
Wick, Margaret
Characteristics of faculty members and institutions were examined that would be predictive of faculty members' willingness to participate in faculty development activities. Of 325 institutions surveyed, 70 provided institutional data and a list of full-time faculty members. Of the 1,000 faculty members surveyed, usable responses were received from 585. A questionnaire investigated the orientation of faculty members toward their profession and organization for which they worked, the way in which Faculty members spend their time, and demographic characteristics of faculty members. None of the variables studied were predictive of faculty members' willingness to participate in faculty development activities. Among the tentative conclusions are that faculty members are most willing to participate in faculty development activities related to their professional career; teaching activities are second, and other institutional activities are least favored. Four recommendations are offered. (SW)
