An Innovative Partnership: Preparing Future Learning-Centered Community College Faculty
Haworth, Jennifer Grant; Carter, Kelly; Jozwiak, Jill; Wilkin, Denise
Journal of Faculty Development, v21 n1 p61-68 Jan 2007
During the next five to ten years, community colleges in Illinois will retire more than half of their tenured faculty members, reflecting a similar national trend. Many masters and doctoral students seeking the professorate may consider community colleges as an attractive teaching opportunity. While community colleges often regard themselves as "teaching colleges," several recent studies paint a different picture, raising concerns regarding the quality of learning and teaching in them. Anticipating the growing need for new community college faculty and recognizing the role that well-prepared teachers can play in enhancing the quality of student learning, Loyola University Chicago and the City Colleges of Chicago recently partnered to create the Community College Learning and Teaching (CCLT) program. As a nine-credit graduate-certificate program, CCLT is intentionally focused on providing new, tenure-track community college faculty and graduate students with the knowledge and skills to succeed as learning-centered faculty in our nation's most diverse colleges.
