Abstract Title: Design and evaluation of campus-wide professional development program in STEM
Abstract: Abstract. A North Dakota State University team of faculty is designing, implementing, and evaluating a sustainable campus-wide professional development program to help faculty maximize instructional effectiveness by building expertise in student-centered practices. As part of the program, we are developing a sequence of workshops that is helping create faculty learning communities and provide support for ongoing collaborations. A variety of instruments are being used to assess the effectiveness of our efforts. Pre-post- retrospective surveys are being used to probe how attitudes, subjective norms, and perceived self-efficacy predict faculty intentions to implement active learning pedagogy. Four repeated-measures ANOVAs are determining differences between each construct across the three time points. In addition, linear regression is being used to determine the ability of attitudes, norms, and self-efficacy to predict intentions. Preliminary results will be presented and implications for the design, implementation, and evaluation of professional development programs will be discussed.
