Purchase Options

Many new faculty lack confidence in their teaching abilities, struggle to gain student trust and establish a rapport with students, and may feel like an outsider among their colleagues in an academic environment. This is where a tailored mentoring program for new faculty can provide a transformative impact.

In this Magna Online Seminar, your presenters elaborate on their research published in the upcoming September issue of the Journal of Faculty Development on their work with the Peer Network program (PN) and the roles Centers for Teaching and Learning (CTL) play in providing peer mentorship for new faculty.

The pilot PN program aims to help new faculty foster a sense of belonging, deepen relationships with the CTL, support effective teaching, encourage empathy for students, celebrate successes, and affirm experiences. The positive research results demonstrate growth in community building, open communication, support for teaching, and increased engagement with the CTL.

Join the authors of this research as they emphasize the importance of tailored mentoring programs for first-year faculty to enhance engagement and involvement with the CTL.
