Mentoring is an efficient teaching and coaching strategy used in higher education to transfer the particular knowledge and skills of the academy to a new faculty member (Lucas & Murry, 2002). In higher education, many new faculty members have difficulties in adjusting and meeting the requirements and expectations of their departments (Lucas & Murry, 2002). New faculty members also lack the preparation in course development, instructional techniques, and research (Solem & Foote, 2004). Ambrose, Huston, and Norman (2005) point to three areas in which mentoring is important for the survival of new faculty members, namely, “mentoring in intellectual activities, professional/career development and department politics” (p. 815). The first few years are crucial to career growth and success of new faculty members; thus, they often need assistance from a mentor to be successful in their university roles. This study investigated new faculty members’ early career patterns in-depth, in order to determine how factors such as mentoring may predispose new faculty to gain tenure at HBCUs. The methodology used for this study was a qualitative case study.

Success and Part-time Faculty: Can Mentoring Help?

6090 руб.
Recent data suggests that 75% of classes taught in post-secondary institutions are taught by part-time, non-tenure track faculty. This ever-growing reliance (or over-reliance as some powerful unions suggest), on a part-time labor force has caused tenured faculty, administrators, and accrediting bodies to wrestle with questions and concerns related to the use of part-time faculty and the quality of their teaching. Many part-time faculty members describe themselves as second class citizens and are often left alone to sink or swim without the collegiate support of full-time, tenured faculty and administrators. How can community colleges and universities include these marginalized members of the scholarly community and, thereby, improve instruction? The findings from this study suggests that part-time faculty members, who receive mentoring, experience a greater degree of instructor confidence and report a greater degree of loyalty to their institutions. This book offers suggestions on how institutions can design, implement, and evaluate a quality and effective mentoring program.

This study examined the relationships between the attachment styles of mentors and proteges, mentoring as measured by psychosocial support and career support, job satisfaction, organizational commitment, and intent to turnover. A survey was administered to the participants of a formal faculty mentoring program. Hypotheses were tested through correlational and hierarchical regression analytic procedures. For mentors and proteges, the variables attachment and mentoring were significantly associated with each of the outcome variables job satisfaction, organizational commitment, and intent to turnover. Furthermore, in the case of mentors, attachment and mentoring specifically psychosocial mentoring predicted unique variance in job satisfaction, organizational commitment, and intent to turnover. For proteges, while secure attachment and mentoring predicted unique variance in job satisfaction, only secure attachment predicted unique variance in organizational commitment, and intent to turnover. The study informs faculty mentoring researchers and practitioners by linking faculty job satisfaction, organizational commitment, and turnover intentions to attachment styles and mentoring.

Revision with unchanged content. Are closer interactions between universities and the private industry negatively affecting the core missions of the universities? This study proposes that this is not necessarily the case, at least regarding the educational and mentoring responsibilities of university scientists. Based on a data from a national survey of tenured and tenure-track scientists in the research extensive universities in the US, this research shows that mentoring, supporting, and collaborating with students not only can co-exist with university scientists' interactions with industry, but can actually stimulate and intensify such interactions. The proposed explanation is that, among other things, students constitute an important dimension of scientists' scientific and technical human capital, particularly suitable for the kinds of tasks and challenges likely to be found in the context of university-industry relations.

As enrollment of minority students and recruitment of minority faculty in higher education increase, opportunities for students to interact with racially and ethnically different faculty will become more frequent and pronounced. Also, there may be expectations that these interactions will produce greater educational gains and sensitivity to racial issues. A quantitative research methodology was employed to measure the nature of the student-faculty interactions across race and to explore factors that influence undergraduate students’ GPA and multicultural perceptions in order to identify ways in which student-faculty interactions might better serve the students.Data collection consisted of surveying students and faculty members via email. The researcher found that only the quality of student-faculty interactions, which belongs to the quality of interactions, had a positive impact on students’ GPA (.06) and their multicultural perceptions (.18). A better understanding of factors influencing students’ GPA and multicultural perceptions would be beneficial for both teachers and undergraduate students at VCU.

Over the long years of our school education so many of us have keenly felt the enduring impact of our most respected or favorite teachers or instructors in our lives. And we know that they are an integral part of quality at all educational levels. However, instead of adopting the traditional case study of successful teachers the author of this book chooses to look at what is here dubbed as mentoring behaviors and mechanisms that are believed to be beneficial to the proteges receiving such behaviors. It is also the author's hope that the examination of master's degree students' informal mentoring experience and dynamics in the academic, career and professional as well as pyschosocial dimensions as presented in this book will fill in a gap in the mentoring literature in education, thus shedding light on the study of students' true needs as well as factors that contribute to successful mentoring relationships.

This Book is helpful because it investigates how educators perceive educational standards as a common trend in the education field. Several studies were conducted to examine educators’ knowledge and familiarity about either new or exciting educational standards, but none was about the Saudi faculty members’ familiarity and perceptions of the CAEP standards. Some of these studies were investigating graduate students’ perceptions about the concepts of standards and accreditation. Others were about teachers’ perceptions of standards and their awareness and ability to implement national standards. These studies were conducted in different places and under different circumstances. Other studies were conducted in the United States with different participants using different methods of data collection. However, no study has been conducted specifically examining faculty members’ perceptions of educational standards. The participants of the studies in the literature were either graduate students, pre-service teachers, or teachers. This study contributes to the literature by conducting the study in the Middle East, specifically in Saudi Arabia.

What's Morale like at your Workplace?

What are the most telling factors that determine the morale of faculty in a university or college? Does the size of the institution make faculty more vulnerable/immune to morale issues? Are work conditions, salary packages and tenure issues major determinants of faculty morale? What impact does the leadership style of senior administrators have on the morale of faculty? Is the morale of faculty more likely to be higher in Church-run tertiary institutions than those run by other bodies, both public and private? If the tertiary institutions are owned and run by the Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) Church, if they all happen to be in the South Pacific region, and if they are all small institutions, do these factors make a difference in the morale of faculty? What part does faculty members’ commitment to their Church – and to God – have in the morale equation? These questions, and more, are explored in this study of faculty morale in the four tertiary institutions owned and run by the SDA Church in the South Pacific – Avondale College of Higher Education, NSW; Pacific Adventist University, PNG; Fulton College, Fiji; and Sonoma College, PNG.

Research Mentorship in Counselor Education

Revision with unchanged content. In higher education, new faculty members experience many stressors, including isolation, overwork, and role confusion. Mentorship, particularly related to research, publication, tenure and promotion may alleviate these stressors and increase job satisfaction and performance for new faculty. Though research mentorship can benefit all, special consideration must be given to faculty women. Because women cite lack of publications as a primary stressor during the pre-tenure years, having a senior faculty person in a research mentor role may alleviate anxiety and stress. This book provides both historical and contemporary overviews of mentor relationships through traditional and feminist lenses. It also defines and clarifies research mentorship. Finally, it outlines a quantitative research study examining the experiences of male and female pre-tenured counselor educators with research mentorship. Implications for counselor educators are discussed. This book is written for both tenured and pre-tenured counselor educators, mentorship scholars and practitioners, and anyone in higher education committed to the recruitment and retention of quality faculty members.

Despite the explosion of online instruction, there few comparable studies of adaptation by higher education faculty to online instruction. The intent of this study is to better understand the complex faculty adaptation experiences that many faculty go through. Such information in turn will help institutions of higher education to understand the new roles and responsibilities they ask faculty to assume. With a better understanding of faculty perceptions of online instruction, those who provide training to faculty will be able to communicate more adequately to faculty what to expect of teaching online in relation to: changes in their roles; the time needed for course planning and course management; psychological and social support of students; appropriate teaching strategies; and the rhythms, flows and anticipated cycles for assignments. The audience for this study includes university personnel interested in establishing similar programs to support their faculty in teaching online. In addition, persons who want to establish or expand professional development programs for on-campus faculty may find this study of interest.

Nearly half of the nation's college students attend community colleges. With increasing emphasis on graduation and transfer rates in higher education, the importance of micro-level interactions that shape student aspiration has been neglected. This study examines the potential of faculty at the community college to positively influence, or “heat up,” student aspirations. This study attempts to bridge the “cooling out” and “heating up” literature in the context of the modern community college by recognizing the role of the individual academic program and faculty. This book applies organizational theory and systems perspective to examine the potential at the community college to "heat up" student aspiration at the institutional, program, and faculty levels. This analysis would be useful to faculty and administrators at community colleges, as well as policy makers or researchers in the field of higher education.

Developmental mentoring is one of two dominant approaches to mentoring; the other being sponsorship mentoring. (Sometimes described as relational v instrumental mentoring). As one of the pioneers of developmental mentoring, David Clutterbuck set out to explore what occurred with this kind of learning relationship, using a longitudinal research design that involved three stages of questionnaires to both mentors and mentees, in their dyads, within formal mentoring programmes and over a 12 month period. Because all the existing measurement instruments were based on sponsorship mentoring, it was necessary to design and validate new measures for most of the constructs. The data analysis demonstrated that sponsorship mentoring and developmental mentoring were indeed separate constructs and identified relationships between goal alignment, behaviours by mentor and mentee, perceived quality of relationship and outcomes for both mentor and mentee. The validated questionnaires and database have subsequently been used in other research into developmental mentoring.

State- vs. community-led land tenure regularization in Tanzania

Land tenure security for the poor residents of informal settlements is a critical factor in facilitating access to housing and livelihood opportunities. In Dar es Salaam, many households live in informal settlements, where their land rights are not recognized by the state. Tenure regularization offers one possible solution to the problem. However, regularization presents unique challenges. This study analyses efforts by both state and community agents in undertaking tenure regularization within the framework of recent land law reforms in Tanzania. The study reveals that the objectives pursued under the state-sponsored projects through the award of ‘Residential Licenses’ fail to recognize the perceptions of tenure security prevailing among residents, and may instead beset household efforts at settlement improvement owing to the limited benefits bestowed by the licenses awarded under the 1999 Land Act. On the other hand, community-led regularization schemes present residents with the promise of higher levels of tenure security and more benefits compared to the licenses, but suffer from unclear policy guidelines and direction from the state.

In this book, I present critical facts about Land Tenure Systems and Poverty Reduction processes in Mafela Resettlement community. I focus mainly on the Post-Fast Track Land Reform (2004 – 2011) period and the interactive processes in this new resettlement area. The book - premised on the rights approach - presents land tenure rights systems and poverty reduction mechanisms seen by the Mafela community to be improving their livelihoods; it also seeks to show evidence linking tenure rights to poverty reduction and how land tenure rights governance systems affect their livelihoods. Suffice to say in both the animal kingdom and human world, territorial space and integrity, its demarcation as well as how resources are used within the space, given the area - calls for a - defined system of rights by the residents themselves. Whilst it is true that there is no one story about Zimbabwe’s land reform (Scoones et al 2011), the contribution of this book towards insights emanating from the newly resettled farmers adds another invaluable contribution in the realm of rural development issues. The oft rigidified perceptions about the land reform in Zimbabwe finds critical analysis in this book.

The purpose of this study was to explore the mentoring process, specifically the interactions between mentor and mentee in the context of an adolescent mentor program. Adolescent programs, conducted at several high schools, were included in the study. The findings indicated that what occurs during the process of mentoring is multi factorial, complex and diverse. Mentoring takes place in a reciprocal way that is impacted by layered contexts. Implications for professionals wishing to work as mentors or wishing to implement mentoring programs are examined in this study. These include the need to recognize and comprehend mentor qualities and styles vis a vis various theoretical constructs such as role modelling, identification and inter subjectivity. Little research has been identified that brings the narratives of both mentor and mentee together in one study comparatively analysing them. In this regard the present study can be seen as unique and contributing something new to the literature on mentoring.

In a traditional society like Ethiopia, where system of governance is highly dependent on the nature of land tenure, historians and other researchers gave priority to the study. Many scholars in the field assumed various general theoretical and conceptual frameworks to analyze the existing tenurial structures. However, many times it fell to represent the historical facts at local levels. In this regard, my study is one of its kinds that show the peculiar features of land tenure in Qajjima sub-district of Ada’a, Ethiopia. It discusses the evolution of the tenure and the sociopolitical and economic structures from 1880s to 1991 in relation to the superstructure. Furthermore, it incorporates the study of emergence and development of the capital of the sub-district, Dukam Town, concomitant with the influence of the political economy of the Imperial and Darg regimes.

Mentoring

Mentoring is a process by which a mentor, who usually is a more senior person, gives supports to a protege, who usually is less in seniority. A mentor provides a protege with eleven mentoring tasks, which can be categorized into three kinds of mentoring functions - (1) career related, (2) role model, and (3) psychosocial supports. Mentoring can be described, by the nature of relationship initiation, as informal and formal mentoring. While informal mentoring occurs spontaneously, formal mentoring needs a facilitator to match mentor-protege pair and to encourage the relationship.

What's in Academic Literacy Mentoring

7790 руб.
Although the term 'mentoring' originates from Greek mythology, others place the origins of its use in the practice of mentoring much earlier, and suggest that its roots lie in the earliest cave-dwelling days of mankind. Furthermore, the phenomenon of mentoring developed not only in western culture, but also has a long history in many other cultures including the Chinese and the Native American Indian. This thesis examines mentoring of academic literacy from a humanistic-caring-moral viewpoint as a pedagogy that relates to the student as a unique individual, working on his cognitive-academic literacy development. The significance of the study is located in the perception that literacy in general and in higher education in particular, has high importance at many levels – individual, academic, social and economic. Still, in academia the prevalent opinion today is that students worldwide do not know how to write. The lack of literacy knowledge is also evident in the world of economics. Thus, mentoring of academic literacy can be a pedagogical approach which might show itself as a way to obtain better results of performing academic literacy.

The purpose of this phenomenological study was to understand the socialization experiences of part-time doctoral students as a result of peer mentorship. Part-time doctoral students are identified as students who are maintaining full-time employment or obligations outside of the university. The 21 participants in this study were all enrolled in a large university at the time of the study. A composite description including themes of collegiality and isolation in the participants’ experiences with peer mentorship are developed. Participants experienced collegiality through nurturing mentoring, educative mentoring, dyadic co-mentoring with peers, workplace colleagues and personal friends who provided efficacious experiences as they negotiated their scholarly identity. Isolation includes feelings of being second-tier doctoral students and life getting in the way combined with feelings of negative self-efficacy. Interrelationships between the themes and subthemes are delineated. Suggestions are provided for both part-time doctoral students and their faculty in order to facilitate the process of socialization to the academy through peer mentorship.

Research shows cheating in colleges across the world is on the rise. If this dishonesty is carried into the workplace, this will be especially problematic for the accounting profession by endangering the economic success of businesses & resulting in potential legal consequences. The very credibility of the profession could be at stake. The definition of cheating needs to be uniformly clarified. A discrepancy exists between students & faculty perceptions on cheating. Professors must clearly define what cheating is in their syllabi & lectures, as well as set forth policies & penalties that will be enforced against cheating. Technology has given rise to new ways to cheat, faculty must also use it to combat cheating in all types of courses. To deter cheating, professors must rigorously enforce existing university standards. The complexity of reporting & difficulty of proving cheating has led to the failure of some faculty to penalize cheaters. The key to begin solving this problem is instilling fear that the chance of being caught is high. Business programs need to increase their emphasis on ethics education. The implication here is that past behavior predicts future actions!

Public colleges and universities have come to increasingly rely on private fundraising to fill gaps left by governmental belt tightening. To a substantial degree, these funds result from capital campaigns and annual fundraising. Traditionally annual campaigns sought donations from alumni, friends, parents, and others who were asked to consider 'giving something back' to an institution. At the turn of the century, institutions enlisted support from their own employees--faculty and staff. The purpose of this study was to obtain information about faculty and staff giving practices at public institutions of higher education in the United States at the beginning of the 21st century. The results revealed that faculty and staff giving differed significantly according to institutional size and Carnegie classification. Both faculty and staff were more likely to give restricted rather than unrestricted gifts.
