As Christine Harrington points out in this book-guided pathways is a massive movement aimed at improving student success, and faculty engagement is a key component to its success. Harrington explores the critical role of faculty within each guided pathways pillar and shares reflective questions that should be asked of faculty. This is a must-read for college leaders who seek to engage and support faculty in guide pathways. -- Linda Garcia, Executive Director, Center for Community College Student Engagement
Guided pathways will not substantially improve student outcomes unless faculty are able to expand their focus from learning in courses to learning across programs and from teaching skills and knowledge to teaching students how to become confident learners in a field. This book, based on Christine Harrington's extensive experience as a community college faculty member, researcher, and trainer, provides an excellent guide on how practically to help faculty rethink how they teach and promote student learning as part of their colleges' larger guided pathways reforms. -- Davis Jenkins, Senior Research Scholar, Community College Research Center, Teachers College Columbia University
Christine Harrington's Engaging Faculty in Guided Pathways: A Practical Resource for College Leader is an invaluable book for colleges that are in the midst of Guided Pathways implementation or are just in the beginning stages. This book provides a detailed guide of how to engage faculty at each stage of development in the Guided Pathways model. In addition to providing essential tasks, the book addresses how faculty expertise is to be incorporated. The book is a must-have for college leaders who are guiding institutions through the Guided Pathways transformational journey. -- Sam Hirsch, Vice President for Academic and Student Success, Community College of Philadelphia
Christine Harrington rightfully elevates the faculty role in the Guided Pathways movement in her important new book, Engaging Faculty in Guided Pathways: A Practical Resource for College Leaders. Throughout this thoughtful and erudite book, Harrington persuasively argues that teaching and learning are at the center of the Guided Pathways model. Filled with both sound theory and practical advice, Harrington's book highlights why faculty engagement with the planning and implementation of Guided Pathways-including a long-overdue discussion of the important role of part-time faculty-is critical to success. Whether a college is deep into implementation or just beginning to weigh the merits of Guided Pathways, Engaging Faculty in Guided Pathways: A Practical Resource for College Leaders should be a touchstone to this important work. -- Michael Sparrow, Dean, Enrollment Management and Retention at Northampton Community College
