Experiences of new faculty implementing research-based instructional strategies 

written by Melissa H. Dancy and Charles R. Henderson

As part of an ongoing study to better understand and improve the diffusion of research-based pedagogies, we are following 15 faculty for 5 semesters after attending the Physics and Astronomy New Faculty Workshop. In this paper we report on the experiences of these faculty the first semester after the workshop. Faculty were interviewed both before and after the semester. Instructional artifacts and course outcome data were also collected. We discuss how the New Faculty Workshop experience impacted these faculty, the concerns and challenges the faculty encountered and how these faculty report spending their time. Implications for the diffusion of innovations are discussed.
