This volume builds on a relatively new but already rich line of research about education for the professoriate. Several of the authors have previously contributed to the growing body of evidence that shows that the intense formal and informal focus on learning to conduct research in doctoral programs leaves future faculty insufficiently prepared for their roles as teachers, academic citizens, and scholars engaged in communities beyond academe. The themes that play across chapters and theoretical frameworks in this volume are discussed.
Descriptors: Doctoral Programs, Professional Education, Postdoctoral Education, Faculty, Teacher Role, Academic Rank (Professional)
