Practical Tips to Aid New Faculty Members | Online Teaching Guest Blog | Blog

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?
