Faculty Readiness for Innovation: A Case Study.
Hill, Malcolm D.; And Others
This study of facutlty readiness for innovative goals and practices measured and evaluated faculty acceptance of non-traditional institutional practices believed necessary to meet community and student learning needs. Two objectives were: (1) to develop a profile of attitudes toward conditions suggesting departure from tradition and readiness for innovation; and (2) to identify faculty characteristics related to flexibility and acceptance of innovation. Results were anticipated to be of administrative benefit in: (1) recruiting faculty members with professional expectations consistent with the mission of the community college; (2) planning and implementing programs for in-service development of existing faculty; and (3) developing strategies for introducing innovation in programs, services, and institutional structure.
