Teaching is a profession in which the newly appointed teachers learn different methods of teaching skills, pedagogies of teaching and conducting research and should know the role and responsibilities of different academic leaders.
The Faculty Induction Program (FIP) includes all these components.
This article aims to study the perceptions of the newly appointed assistant professors or early-career faculty (ECF) regarding FIP, conducted by the Faculty Development Center (FDC) of Mizoram University, India.
Out of 202 participants, 100 were selected by simple random sampling procedure.
A self-constructed questionnaire was used for the collection of data.
Focus group discussion was also conducted.
The findings revealed that FIP conducted by the FDC was well organized.
The participants benefitted by learning micro-teaching and its uses, the development of teaching-learning material, comprehensive and effective lesson planning, Bloom’s taxonomy, and the constructivist teaching approach.
