Newly-hired faculty and their needs have been studied in various arenas in higher education. However, there is limited research documenting current newly-hired faculty programming in Canadian institutions of higher education. The present study is the second in a series that attempts to capture the various types of professional development programs for newly-hired faculty at Canadian universities. An overview of 53 Canadian institutions' newly-hired faculty programming specifically short courses, teaching and mentoring programs are explored. These findings provide guidance for institutions looking to develop new short courses, teaching and mentoring programs for newly-hired faculty, for current programs wishing to know what other institutions are doing for their newly-hired faculty, and for those who are "blazing the trail" to be encouraged in the trends they have established in supporting newly-hired faculty. The ultimate goal is to provide a national perspective of what is currently being offered to support our newly-hired faculty. As a second part in a series, this article focuses on the current overview of short courses, teaching and mentoring programs. (Contains 7 tables.)
