Why Learner-Centered New Faculty Orientations Matter: Organizational Culture and Faculty Retention
Scott, Whitney; Lemus, Daisy; Knotts, Greg; Oh, Janet
Journal of Faculty Development, v30 n1 p15-22 Jan 2016
A learner-centered New Faculty Orientation (NFO) can be a powerful way to immediately engage new faculty and develop their organizational identification to the institution and its values. Unfortunately, some NFOs do not model a learner-centered philosophy and miss opportunities to establish a collaborative and celebratory tone. In this paper, we share recommendations for creating a learner-centered NFO and offer concrete strategies creating a dynamic orientation that helps socialize faculty to the organizational culture and supports overall faculty retention.
