Strengthening the Role of Part-Time Faculty in Community Colleges. Focus Group Toolkit
Center for Community College Student Engagement
The Center for Community College Student Engagement encourages colleges to hold focus groups with part-time and full-time faculty to learn about differences in the faculty and their experience at their college and to complement survey data. Survey responses tell the "what" about faculty's experiences; through conducting focus groups, colleges will learn the "why." In addition to gathering specific details about faculty perceptions and experiences, these structured discussions will also help uncover possible strategies to consider for strengthening the role of part-time faculty at the college. Provided in this toolkit are materials for organizing focus groups and sample focus group discussion guides for faculty. In addition, sample quantitative response sheets are provided to gather basic demographic information, as well as information to complement findings from discussions. [This toolkit was produced as part of the Center initiative Strengthening the Role of Part-Time Faculty in Community Colleges, supported by MetLife Foundation.]
