What do staff new to teaching want/need from a teaching induction program?

As well as talking with program directors of teaching induction programs about their programs, it might be useful, if we could get permission to do so, to talk with some staff who have completed a teaching induction program recently to find out what they valued and what else they would have liked their program to cover.

I like the idea of having this input to consider when we develop our national LTIP.

While we could ask many questions, we aren't setting out to evaluate the teaching induction program that these staff have taken. We want to know what the intended audience of LTIP would value in such a program as we will build.

Below are just a couple of questions and I would be interested for your thoughts on if we should ask anything further and if so what.

Also, should we also interview some staff who are new to teaching and who haven't enrolled in a teaching induction program?




Demographic info - teaching experience, age, casual/contract/part time, research student/research and teaching/teaching only + clinical practitioners?

  1. Tell me about your experience of completing your university's teaching induction program?
  2. What were some of the strengths of the program? Or What did you find most valuable about the program?
  3. Tell me about a key moment for you in the program.
  4. Is there anything else that you would like to see covered in the program?
  5. Is there anything about the program that you would like to see changed?
  6. Was the program long enough? Too long?
