Practical Tips to Aid New Faculty Members | Online Teaching Guest Blog | Blog | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
When training and developing new faculty, words like best practices, pedagogy/andragogy, student engagement, and retention are bandied about quite a bit. While these things are important and certainly need to be addressed, I find new faculty also need to know more practical aspects of what it means to teach for any given college or university. No matter the subject matter taught, navigating various collegiate landscapes can become difficult and confusing, especially when adjuncting at a variety of institutions. So, what do new faculty need to know during this time of adjustment?
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

This article will help program directors build a safety net cradle the concerns of the online teaching staff. Great tips for managers!

Interactive Map: Understanding Teacher Shortages

Interactive Map: Understanding Teacher Shortages | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
This map highlights a number of key factors that reflect and influence teacher supply and attrition and signal whether states are likely to have an adequate supply of qualified teachers to fill their classrooms. Based on these data—which treat compensation, teacher turnover, working conditions, and qualifications—each state is assigned a “teaching attractiveness rating,” indicating how supportive it appears to be of teacher recruitment and retention and a “teacher equity rating,” indicating the extent to which students, in particular students of color, are assigned uncertified or inexperienced teachers. Ratings are on a 1-5 scale, with 1 (the lightest color) being the least desirable and 5 (the darkest color) being the most desirable.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Interesting way to look at complex data.  How does your state rate?
