Faculty Development Constituent Committee
This is a work in progress paper that describes an effort to support faculty development and mentorship. The current faculty development literature indicates that faculty members who receive adequate mentoring are more productive leading to greater overall objective career success. Despite these findings, minimal research in engineering education has investigated the impact of faculty development and mentoring programs. Evaluating faculty development and mentoring programs can elicit information that can help inform the development of an evidenced-based approach to designing such programs. The Engineering Faculty Impact Collaborative (EFIC) seeks to address this need by building a collaborative among institutions and faculty that will: (1) instigate broad interest in and awareness of entrepreneurial mindset (EM)-based engineering faculty mentorship and development, (2) contribute to the knowledge base around engineering faculty development or mentorship, and (3) connect engineering faculty members who wish to engage in EM-based faculty development. This paper shares the process of developing a strategic plan for EFIC and details from the resulting strategic plan that emerged. It is preferred that the WIP paper is presented in a technical session.
