A Role For Faculty in Contract Learning: Toward A Theory of Nontraditional Faculty Development.
Bradley, A. Paul, Jr.
Empire State College (ESC), a statewide college without a campus, requires Nontraditional concepts of faculty, since their role as mentor in a contractual learning situation is more diverse than that of a traditional faculty member. The ESC mentor role involves several activities: advisement, intellectual development, evaluation, college development, and personal career development. In the faculty's attempt to carry out those functions five stages of development generally evolve -- antitraditionalism, estrangement, confrontation, turnaround and commitment, and renewal. The importance of identifying these five stages of innovative faculty development is that in knowing about them steps can be taken to accelerate their completion. New and prospective mentors can profit from an understanding of these stages and of the problems they are likely to encounter. (Author/KE)
