Beyond Mentoring: A Rationale for the Study of Higher Education in Pre-Service Faculty Development Programs. ASHE Annual Meeting Paper.
Arnold, David L.
A rationale for studying the history and organization of higher education in pre-service faculty development programs is presented. Faculty development has generally focused on the improvements of individual instructional skills and practice, becoming localized and isolated from the cosmopolitan world of higher educational institutions and disciplines. It is important that there be mechanisms by which students in doctoral programs receive deliberate orientation to institutional and career characteristics of higher education and faculty service. Programs in higher education should assemble a repertoire of export seminars addressing various aspects of the institutional environment of higher education. These programs could then be marketed to central administration and deans of colleges as components in the various intercollege seminars that characterize most doctoral programs. Attached are: a chart on degrees of program development; a chart explaining such a program; and examples of institutional factors for discussion. Contains 4 references. (SM)
