The Known Unknowns: Some Best Practices for Onboarding and Training New Full-Time Faculty

Each year, community college administrators and Human Resources departments are busy hiring new full-time faculty members. These new faculty members then experience the transition from their previous place of employment, whether from an academic institution or industry, to their new campus home. In order to make this transition easier and enable each faculty member to learn a new set of policies, procedures, and best practices, colleges should provide a comprehensive onboarding and learning experience. Attend this webinar to learn about the structure of one college’s model to help new faculty grow and flourish from the moment they step on campus as “freshman” in a new environment.

Sean J. Glassberg, Director, Faculty Development, Horry Georgetown Technical College (HGTC) in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, has nearly 25 years of academic and professional experience, ranging from teaching English at community colleges and universities to training industry and technical professionals to become educators. In 2003, he developed the first iteration of a New Faculty Orientation program at HGTC. Over the years, through constant evaluation and new faculty surveys, this program has evolved into a comprehensive course required of all new full-time faculty hires at the college. The course consists of class meetings, assignments, quizzes, webinars, an online resource center, and guest facilitators, all of which enable faculty to immerse themselves in an environment where they can learn about teaching at their new academic home. Sean enjoys sharing what he does and learning what others do to help new faculty at their own colleges.
