Seasoned faculty members offer advice to new faculty on surviving culture shock, time management, mentoring, tenure and promotion, teaching and research, writing, relations with the church, claiming institutional voice, and building community.
Dramatic changes are transforming the way theological school faculties pursue both teaching and scholarship. The expansion of educational technologies, rising administrative expectations, and growing pressure to facilitate student formation are demanding more of faculty than ever before. ATS programs and resources for faculty at all stages of their careers are guided by three primary goals:
- to support the vocation of theological educators,
- to address dramatic changes in faculty roles and work, and
- to help faculty develop as leaders in their institutions.
