ELA’s Professional Development Series: Eric Hofmann (5/9/2023)

Please join us for the second ELA 2023 Professional Development Talk by Dean Eric Hofmann on Tuesday May 9, 2023 at 3:30pm.

  • Date: Tuesday, May 9, 2023
  • Time: 3:30pm
  • Title: The Role of Learning in Community College Academic Careers
  • Speaker: Eric Hofmann, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, LaGuardia Community College
  • Online (Zoom)
  • Abstract: In his presentation, Dean Hofmann will discuss a recent Action Research study that examined the experiences of full-time faculty at LaGuardia. The study included surveys and interviews that revealed challenges faculty have faced and the supports and strategies that helped them shape and deepen their scholarly identities. Cycle 2 data collection included the design, implementation, and evaluation of a digital portfolio intended to help faculty plan and integrate their work strategically. The study found that a scaffolded process that fosters faculty learning and is supported by colleagues may help new faculty identify ways to connect their classroom-facing activities with their other responsibilities.
