Dr. Abida Nasreen, Munawar S. Mirza

The study was conducted to examine current practices of faculty training and development in the old and new public sector universities of Punjab, Pakistan. The sample of study included teachers, heads of departments (HoDs), and human resource management (HRM) experts. The data from teachers and HoDs were collected through questionnaires. Interviews were conducted with HRM experts. The main objective was to analyze the current practices of faculty development (FD) and training in old and new universities of Punjab.

Universities do not have HRM offices. Therefore, specialized advice on HRD practices was also non existent. HRM experts were concerned on sporadic conduct of training programs and they suggested regularizing and evaluating such programs appropriately.
