Creating a Culture of Integrative Faculty Development
Bloss, Adrienne; Hanstedt, Paul; Kirby, Susan
Liberal Education, v96 n4 p12-17 Fall 2010
In a professional setting where promotion requirements insist on the maintenance of the laser-like focus developed by graduate school training, how can one prepare faculty to teach courses that incorporate broad skills and make connections across disciplinary boundaries? This article presents one liberal arts college's answer to this question--a successful faculty development model from Roanoke College that addresses the challenges of preparing faculty to teach courses that incorporate broad skills and make connections across disciplinary boundaries. While the solutions Roanoke College developed to address these issues are by no means perfect, they can, at the very least, provide a valuable framework for further discussion. (Contains 1 note.)
