New Faculty Issues: Fitting in and Figuring It Out
Eddy, Pamela L.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n152 p15-24 Win 2010
This chapter provides a portrait of faculty development in community colleges, highlighting different issues facing faculty based on location and including a review of the impact of socialization on how faculty approach their roles. The research reported in this chapter draws from two sources: data from a qualitative case study, which provides the underpinnings for understanding the impacts of how faculty prepared for their teaching positions, and data from a national study on faculty development, which highlights different faculty needs based on institutional size and location. Key findings from this research include a lack of intentional planning for a career as a community college faculty member, connections to the regional university, and links to practice. Findings indicate that changing classrooms require a different type of faculty preparation and that links with regional universities are critical. (Contains 1 table.)
