Taking the Lead in Faculty Development: Teacher Educators Changing the Culture of University Faculty Development through Collaboration
Adams, Susan R.; Mix, Elizabeth K.
AILACTE Journal, v11 n1 p37-56 Fall 2014
As pedagogy experts, teacher educators should lead the charge for improved teaching and learning, but are under-utilized pedagogy resources in liberal arts universities. In this paper, the collaborators, one a teacher education assistant professor and the other an associate professor of art history, identify critical friendship group approaches (Allen & Blythe, 2004; McDonald, Mohr, Dichter, & McDonald, 2007) which have the potential to create transformative learning opportunities for liberal arts educators. Cross-disciplinary faculty partnerships hold promise for a sustainable, innovative approach to faculty development, with the potential to improve teaching and learning in liberal arts universities.
