Description - Educating Integrated Professionals by TL (Teaching and Learning)

There is a need for doctoral students to broaden their perspective on their own education so that they value teaching and service (professional and community) equally with research. This volume explores two interrelated paths to that goal. The first path encourages doctoral students -- and their faculty mentors -- to take advantage of the synergies among their teaching, research, and community service roles. Involving students in research, conducting research about one's teaching, or collaborating with community partners and students to investigate and solve real-world problems can enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of academic work. The second path emphasizes connections between professional and academic aspects of faculty work. Faculty members who integrate their disciplinary and professional work become adept at recognizing and solving ill-defined problems, skilled at understanding and responding to ethical questions, and able to discover, teach, and apply knowledge with colleagues, students, and community partners.Topics discussed include: OL {list-style:disc}P:{margin-left 60px} Professional Identity Development Theory and Doctoral Education Applying Lessons from Professional Education to the Preparation of the Professoriate Graduate Education and Community Engagement Networking to Develop a Professional Identity: A Look at the First-Semester Experience of Doctoral Students in Business Lost in Translation: Learning Professional Roles Through the Situated Curriculum Strategies for Preparing Integrated Faculty: The Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning Career Preparation for Doctoral Students: The University of Kansas History Department The authors consider the successes and failures of their case studies in the light of theories of identity development, professionalization, apprenticeship, socialization, mentoring, social networks, situated curriculum, concurrent curricula, and academic planning. They illuminate some of the drawbacks of current education for the professoriate and at the same time point toward current programs and new possibilities for educating doctoral students who will begin their faculty careers ready to integrate teaching, research and service. This is the 113th volume of the Jossey-Bass higher education quarterly report series New Directions for Teaching and Learning , offering a comprehensive range of ideas and techniques for improving college teaching based on the experience of seasoned instructors and on the latest findings of educational and psychological researchers.
