Principles of Andragogy in Collegiate Faculty Development.
Moore, Janet R.
The faculty development program of a department at a predominantly black university in the South Atlantic region of the United States (identified by the pseudonym Reed University) was studied. The purpose was to identify the extent to which the principles and practices of adult education are applied within the faculty development effort; to describe the knowledge of, attitudes toward, and experience with the principles and practices of adult education; to identify the problems and issues surrounding their implementation; and to make recommendations concerning the use of principles and practices of andragogy within the context of higher education faculty development. Six data collection methods were used (literature review, interview, critical incidents, observations, documentary review, and program data inventory). Based on study findings, several recommendations are made, including the following: (1) collegiate faculty development programs should implement and pay close attention to a specific set of principles and practices; (2) there should be a clear description of faculty development effort; (3) faculty development should include dialogic learning; and (4) faculty development programs should provide opportunities for administrative development. Indications are that the collegiate workplace could be enhanced if concepts of adult education were more fully implemented. Contains 27 references. (Author/SM)
