The Determination of a Set of Characteristics to Be Used in the Selection of New Engineering Technology Faculty Members at the Southern Technical Institute. College Governance.
Bannerman, James W.; Shilser, Clifford
Characteristics and qualifications of an effective educator in engineering and liberal arts colleges have been examined. Engineering technology colleges are unique in their purpose and methods and require unique faculty. Through a survey of students, alumni, faculty, and administrators, this study identifies six characteristics indicative of an effective educator in an engineering technology environment. They are: enthusiasm, practicability, leadership, communications skills, industrial experience, and education. The findings have been passed to the faculty screening committees at the Southern Technical Institute with the recommendation that applications for teaching positions be subjectively evaluated against the criteria.
