Abstract

Many factors influence the effectiveness of educational programs and initiatives for engineering faculty, including job responsibilities, departmental and college culture, experience, and more. In the current study, we examine the results and implications of a survey assessing faculty priorities and needs for educational and instructional responsibilities, as well as for research and service responsibilities. The results from this study found variance between what faculty reported as their most important job responsibilities and the job responsibilities where they would like to receive more support. These variations were seen across teaching, research, and service responsibilities. Implications for academic developers are discussed.
