The Phenomenology of Change: How Do Individual Faculty Manage the Instructional Change Process?
Bender, David S.; Weimer, Maryellen
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (Montreal, Canada, Apr 2005)
Very little empirical research or literature in higher education addresses the issues involved when individual faculty implement changes in their instructional policies, practices and behaviors. This paper explains five dimensions of the instructional change process when individual faculty act as change agents. Results of a faculty survey about the change process are presented with respect to five key themes: (1) How do faculty orient to change? (2) What motivates change? (3) How do faculty make change choices? (4) How are changes implemented? and (5) How do faculty assess and sustain change?
