Project Description

This research study will investigate the process of transition that former police officers have undergone in order to become a college instructor. The transition of professional practitioners to instructors is a relevant topic of discussion as a successful transition will contribute to the goal of providing opportunities for student learning from individuals with relevant industry and professional expertise. This study may provide insights into the development of novice college instructors and provide opportunities to facilitate the development of appropriate perspectives and instructional strategies for present and future faculty.
