Faculty Development Curriculum: What Informs It?
Elliott, Robert W.
Journal of Faculty Development, v28 n3 p35-45 Sep 2014
With the current milieu of current legislation and continued budget reductions for higher education, institutions are faced with being more creative in their efforts to reduce spending while achieving their stated mission. The purpose of this paper is to inform college administrators and faculty about the sources used to inform faculty development initiatives and curriculum at postsecondary institutions. This review of literature examined information from a mix of quantitative and qualitative case studies that focus on the experiences of faculty to improve student learning, thus it reveals underlying themes that emerged from the analyses of the studies' findings.
