Peer Coaching: Professional Development for Experienced Faculty
Huston, Therese; Weaver, Carol L.
Innovative Higher Education, v33 n1 p5-20 Jun 2008
The professoriate, as a whole, is growing older and more experienced; yet institutions often overlook the professional development needs of mid-career and senior faculty. This article, based on a review of the literature and the development of a peer coaching project, examines peer coaching as a professional development opportunity for experienced faculty that meets many of their immediate needs and offers a variety of longer-term benefits to their institution. Six recommendations for creating a peer coaching program emerge from the literature and the authors' experience.
