Establishing a Research Agenda of New Faculty.
Baker, Molly Herman; And Others
In this paper, a panel of four new faculty discuss the challenges they have faced and the lessons they have learned in attempting to create a research agenda for themselves. To provide a point of reference, brief biographical sketches are provided of the panel members and the responder. The panelists' comments are provided on several principal topics and recommendations that emerged: (1) build skills and one research focus through the dissertation; (2) choose an institution/environment that fits your interests; (3) at first, watch for research problems and resources as you deal with the onslaught of demands; (4) select research projects from these identified possibilities and resources; (5) seek out others to collaborate with on research projects; and (6) develop discipline for writing. Additional comments are included from one of the panelists on the social responsibility, politics, goals, methods, and practical steps that go with establishing a research agenda. (AEF)
