New Faculty Needing Help?

New faculty members need practical help to achieve lasting classroom success.

The average college professor knows his or her subject matter very well, but receives very little training in how to teach effectively. That’s because most graduate programs provide minimal instruction on classroom pedagogy.

It’s not surprising that many new faculty members struggle when they are first asked to lead their own classes. Bad habits picked up early in a teaching career can become self-defeating in the long term.

Often, new faculty members try to do too much and wind up overextending themselves, which diminishes their enthusiasm. This can lead to frustration and ineffectiveness. The best way to confront these problems is to provide new faculty members with practical guidance and seasoned advice early on.
