This book does a good job of framing faculty development. The reason it didn't get the full 5 stars is because what I regard as the most difficult problem--connecting multicultural ed. to STEM subjects via faculty development--was just covered theoretically. Given the scope of the book, this isn't necessarily a problem, but given the non-specific coverage of an important topic, I couldn't come away fully illuminated. Overall, the book represents a good value and will be helpful for anyone trying to get an understating of the principles and practices of faculty development.

Adult learning theory integrated with faculty development. If you are a faculty developer then this is a book you show read.
