Faculty development yields benefits by increasing skills in instruction that translate into increased student success and retention. Tenure and non-tenure faculty have similar support needs, and developers can best aid all through being cognizant of the demands placed on them and employing approaches that respect faculty time. Proven helpful support services for non-tenure faculty include furnishing consultations, materials, special workshops, external services, retreats, and instruments such as knowledge surveys and structured focus groups.
