Palpable Possibilities: Experience of New Faculty in the CCOE
Barbour, Ann; Chinn, Frances Kuwahara; Chee, Anna; Land, Robert
Online Yearbook of Urban Learning, Teaching, and Research, p57-64 2004
This article examines the experiences of new faculty entering the Charter College of Education (CCOE) at California State University. As new faculty members, the authors describe how they were welcomed into the CCOE, how they were invited into projects, how easy it was to make connections with other faculty, how much they felt valued and welcomed, how needed and valued their voices were, and what made the acclimation process easier or more difficult. The authors discovered that although there were similar experiences offered to them as new faculty members, each of them evaluated their usefulness in different ways. When asked to describe their experiences, the authors listed many events (e.g., advising students, supervising preservice teachers, developing syllabi, teaching courses, creating retention, tenure, promotion (RTP) portfolios, etc.). They then categorized these events into five categories: (1) Description of Experiences; (2) Mentors in the CCOE; (3) Differences in Lower and Higher Education; (4) Challenges of Being New Professors in the CCOE; and (5) Benefits of the Cohort of New Professors.
