What to expect as a Walden contributing faculty member:
Faculty members educate Walden University students by effectively using online technology and resources to create leverage for their knowledge and experience providing an engaging student experience. Faculty members are expected to share their expert knowledge and give actionable feedback in carefully formulated, timely communication to students. This is accomplished in a student-centric environment that is respectful, collaborative, and follows Walden University and program-specific guidelines.
All new Faculty Members receive specific orientation and training from Walden University to best practices in online learning facilitation. They also receive socialization into the Walden University culture of quality, integrity, and learning-centeredness. They receive orientation in the assessment of academic integrity of student work; and the specific policies, procedures and degree programs of the School in which they are going to teach.
Faculty Members are assigned courses, which are taught using the Blackboard LMS. Faculty are responsible for interacting with students within the platform. In the course-based format, faculty members are expected to engage with students within the asynchronous discussion board areas a minimum of 4 days per week, and to respond to student questions within 48 hours. All engagement within the course must be completed in a timely manner in accordance with the Walden Faculty Handbook or other criteria established by Walden University. Faculty Members are required to verify the academic integrity of student postings and submissions and to provide grades and actionable, supportive feedback to students through Blackboard. In addition, Faculty members will publish their availability and a brief biography to students within the course. A university best practice is regular and predictable availability, such as online office hours or regular online chats.
Faculty may also be assigned to the Tempo© competency-based areas of expertise as a subject matter expert. Tempo utilizes the Brightspace LMS and has its own set of requirements as set forth in the Walden Faculty Handbook. Separate, unique training is required for all faculty members who participate in the competency-based program.
