Abstract Title: How can PERers support emerging community members’ self-efficacy?
Abstract Type: Contributed Poster Presentation
Abstract: DBER attracts many faculty from STEM disciplines, yet these faculty have limited specific training in DBER. DBER's inherent interdisciplinarity is particularly challenging for emerging DBER researchers who often get started in DBER with only discipline-specific content and research training. As part of a study about how STEM faculty become involved with DBER, we interviewed emerging DBER faculty about their pathways into DBER. We conducted a thematic analysis of these interviews focusing on self-efficacy following the work of Bandura. Our analysis identified 3 roles for emerging and experienced DBER researchers that support the self efficacy of new faculty entering DBER. These roles are the "peer," the "subject matter expert," and the "project manager." We call on the PER community to take up these roles in support of new and emerging members.
