I worked as faculty at a four year college in the undergrad program. I left and now I am back as a lab coordinator. Since I have been gone(one semester), we have had a giant turn over in faculty or faculty teaching in their non specialty areas. I know it is hard to teach if you have no background in teaching(the college has no orientation program for new staff,however, program coordinators are good about communicating with each other). The students are VERY unhappy. They understand that faculty have left, however, they feel they are not getting the education they are paying for(faculty missing lectures, new faculty unsure of what they are teaching). I really love this college and would like to help in some way. Anything like this happen to anyone out there? If so, what did you do about it?
