1. Levine-Sauberman, Monica Heather. A case study of faculty development in a community college's teaching and learning center.

Degree: EdD, School of Education, 2014, Northeastern University

Many professors come to the college environment with a strong understanding of their discipline but lack teaching skills. To address the issue of faculty development, many colleges use Boyer's Scholarship of Engagement to guide the development of faculty in teaching and learning centers, but little is known about how community colleges develop faculty through the growing use of centralized services. The purpose of this study was to examine how a Teaching and Learning Center at a community college located in the northeast of the United States develops faculty. The qualitative case study included inductive analysis of 11 semi-structured in-depth interviews, observations, field notes, and documents. Observations were conducted on a wide range of offerings of the Center for Teaching and Learning. Participants were purposeively sampled, ring a different college departments, levels and gender. Study results indicated that the CTL develops faculty by aligning with the mission of the college, building relationships by maintaining a visible presence on campus, scannning the environment to meet faculty needs, leveling departmental and hierachical boundaries to promote idea sharing and helping faculty integrate innovations into the classroom. From these findings, three salient conclusions were drawn. First, the director's role and behavior in the CTL is integral for overcoming politicial resistance in fostering faculty development. Second, the CTL promotes sharing best teaching practices across disciplines and levels of hierarchy. Last, the changing nature of technology is a major driving force in faculty development.
