Faculty Development in Community Colleges: Surveying the Present, Preparing for the Future
Eddy, Pamela L.
Journal of Faculty Development, v20 n3 p143-152 Nov 2005
Faculty development research historically reported details on the types of programming available and the format of delivery. This research instead sought to uncover the underpinnings of the goals behind development efforts at community colleges. Findings indicate that teaching and learning issues remain central, with faculty interests serving as the prime influence on programming decisions. New directions identified as areas of foci included program assessment, training of part-time adjunct faculty, and unit/program evaluation. The greatest challenges facing faculty included assessment of student learning and teaching underprepared students. Institutional challenges also concerned assessment of student learning and teaching underprepared students, as well as part-time/adjunct faculty training. (Contains 3 tables.)
