Faculty engagement in teaching development activities, phase 1 : Participation du corps professoral dans le perfectionnement de l'enseignement, étape 1 : étude documentaire




A few universities in Canada offer teaching certificates to their graduate students, and there appears to be a trend toward more universities offering teacher training to graduate students. But the majority of faculty still learn how to teach in a fairly haphazard manner, simply learning as they actually engage in teaching. In order to develop appropriate program offerings to meet those training needs, it is important that teaching and learning units at universities better understand how faculty learn to teach. That is why the researchers involved in this study are all involved in the direction of teaching and learning units at their own institutions. The overall purpose of this project is to learn how faculty engage in teaching development activities. Phase 1 involves a review of the literature, and Phase 2 is an actual research project undertaken at six Ontario universities. This paper represents the results of the review of literature, and will help guide the development of an on-line survey that will comprise much of the actual research project.
