A Handbook for Faculty Development. Volume 3.
Bergquist, William H.; Phillips, Steven R.
The exercises and role playing activities in this third and final volume on faculty development are intended to assist college faculty in instructional, personal, organizational, and career development. The first section contains an introductory chapter that describes the three theoretical domains that provide a framework for the volume: collegiate instruction; institutional development; and faculty development. A role playing situation is provided to elicit participants' personally held assumptions about faculty development issues. Six case studies of approaches to faculty development are presented for discussion purposes. In the second section, which concerns instructional development, three general instruction methods are described: content-based; student-based, and interaction-based. The chapters on student-based and interaction-based methods include handout materials containing guidelines and techniques for improving instruction. A chapter on instructional consultation with faculty members describes an instructional problem solving process. The chapters in Section Three deal with personal, organizational, and career development. Group exercises are provided for each topic along with the source of the exercise, general description of purpose, and instructions for use. Section Four addresses the present and future status of faculty development. Fundraising efforts are noted, and the more efficient use of information about faculty is advocated. A faculty activity survey is suggested to assess faculty members' estimated, as compared to preferred, time allotment per task. An index to all three volumes in this series is included. (FG)
