At Prof360, We surveyed 232 academic administrators (deans, program/department chairs, program/department directors) and asked, “What one piece of information about your adjunct or full-time faculty do you wish you had more readily available?” The top five results.
Here are the top five responses:
32% of the top five respondents wanted to be able to easily access faculty expertise and current research.
28% expressed an interest in understanding the faculty members' pedagogical approaches and how ithey evolve over time.
24% wanted to have teaching evaluations more accessible.
12% wanted quick access to the faculty members' contact information when they need it.
4% of the respondents wondered how the faculty were using social media in their research and in the classroom.
22% of responses fell outside the top 5 responses and most only had 1 - 3 similar responses. A few of those outlying responses included:
• "What consulting or outside work they are doing?"
• "What hobbies do they have?"
• "What is their favorite movie or book?"
• "Are they living their passion?"
