Abstract

The purpose of this study was to gain insight into the nature of faculty development in relations to teaching at Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN). The study, through an ethnographic case study approach, focused on the perceptions and attitudes that a select number of faculty members and administrators at MUN have about the role of faculty development in relation to teaching at the university. Attention was paid in the study to how the university administration works with faculty to promote and support faculty development activities in the area of teaching; to how the academic culture at MUN encourages faculty development in teaching; and finally, to the professional development activities devoted to teaching enrichment that are currently carried out. Recommendations are made as to those professional development activities which might be put in place at MUN. The results of the study may be helpful in planning for the professional developmental needs of faculty teaching at MUN.
