Faculty collaboration : enhancing the quality of scholarship and teaching by Ann E Austin( Book )

5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faculty collaboration has grown dramatically over the course of this century. Conventional stereotypes, which convey the image of professors conducting research in the isolation of a laboratory or teaching alone in front of a room of passive students, overlook important aspects of modern academic life. Many professors now do much of their work--teaching, conducting research, and writing--in partnership with colleagues. Faculty collaboration occurs in a variety of settings and takes different forms, depending on the nature of the collaborative team and the goals of its members. Essentially, faculty collaboration is a cooperative endeavor that involves common goals, coordinated effort, and outcomes or products for which the collaborators share responsibility and credit. Professors choose to work in concert with colleagues for numerous reasons. Many believe collaboration increases productivity, maintains motivation, and stimulates creativity and risk taking. It can maximize the use of limited resources and could enhance the quality of teaching and research. Sometimes complex problems accompany faculty collaboration, however, such as difficulty concerning evaluation and assigning credit for work produced in collaboration. Because of the increasing popularity of faculty collaboration and the complex questions it poses to higher education, the time is right for a comprehensive examination of this important topic

Redesigning higher education : producing dramatic gains in student learning by Lion F Gardiner( Book )

4 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph reviews empirical studies on various aspects of higher education relating to the effectiveness of instruction in regard to four areas: curriculum, instruction, campus psychological climate, and academic advising. After an introduction, the first section describes the development of critical skills, how these skills develop, and the conditions believed necessary to produce them. The following four sections examine the four core areas central to student development and the contribution research suggests they now make to the development: (1) curriculum (methods, the intellectual climate of the classroom, students' involvement, effects of the curriculum); (2) instruction (classroom tests and grades); (3) the campus climate (integration into the campus community, commuter and part-time students, students involvement with faculty, and minority group members); and (4) academic advising (developmental advising, the necessity for training in advising, and evaluation, recognition, and reward of advising). The next three sections describe opportunities for dramatic gains in students' learning, examining evidence about the relative capacity of students to learn at a very high level; describing seven specific changes which can improve students' learning, and addressing issues of leadership, management, and professional development. The final section presents a vision and a challenge to develop a new kind of community on campus. (Contains approximately 650 references.) (DB)
The department chair : new roles, responsibilities, and challenges by Alan T Seagren( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph explores the changing role of the academic department chair in the areas of leadership, influence, and faculty development. The paper uses research insights to explore the situation of an academic chair who is squeezed between the demands of upper administration and the expectations of faculty, staff, and students. Studies of the roles and responsibilities of chairs consistently show that the role is ambiguous, unclear in authority, and difficult to classify as faculty or administrator. The tradition of faculty ownership dictates that chair leadership must emphasize empowering activities. The most effective use of political influence and power understands the political forces and processes of the institution and maneuvers groups and coalitions to achieve the autonomy and control necessary to a strong department. Faculty evaluation provides a chair with a powerful opportunity for developing quality. In addition, the chair must recognize how institutional type, history, and culture, model of governance, and discipline can influence what is expected. In the coming years chairs will need a program of professional development on many fronts to acquire the skills to address the complex challenges they will face. (Contains over 200 references.) (JB)

Sexual harassment in higher education : from conflict to community by Robert O Riggs( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Colleges and universities are expected to provide safe and appropriate learning and working environments, including freedom from sexual harassment. Unfortunately, the frequency of complaints on college and university campuses has increased. Sexual harassment is a form of sexual discrimination and is prohibited by federal laws. This behavior interferes with a student's or employee's performance by producing a hostile working or learning environment. It can manifest itself as gender harassment; unwanted seductive behavior; sexual bribery and coercion; and sexual assault, including attempted rape and rape. Research shows that between 20 and 30 percent of undergraduate female students are victims of some form of sexual harassment by at least one of their professors during their undergraduate years. Additionally, 60 percent of presidents of large research and doctorate institutions believed sexual harassment to be a problem. The most important steps institutions can take to eliminate sexual harassment are to: (1) carefully draft definitions of sexual harassment; (2) provide accessible grievance procedures; and (3) provide education about the nature of this type of behavior to educate the campus community. These steps represent the best practices that institutions have developed after more than a decade of aggressive response to the problem. (Contains approximately 130 references and an index.) (GLR)
The leadership compass : values and ethics in higher education by John R Wilcox( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This brief report summarizes a longer document with the same title. It explains that institutions of higher education have a moral responsibility as disseminators of knowledge to foster proper values and ethical thinking in its students for the well-being of society. The collegiate ethos, the practices and customs of the institution, are important in fostering responsibility for individual and social welfare. The scholar's role is crucial because of his or her power to define reality for and exercise control over society in general and students in particular. Often ethical problems exist due to the competing needs of the various roles inherent in the scholar, involving teaching, discovery, application, and integration. To assist in dealing with these problems, the institution itself must take a leadership role by: properly formulating mission statements based on ethical practices and concerns; fostering collaboration among all faculty, administrators, staff, and students to work with the values necessary for institutional effectiveness and overall integrity; and employing the use of models of ethical decision making. The academic environment must foster the importance of human dignity, nourishment of growth and achievement, and respect of others. Such an environment is defined as a learning community. Contains 10 references. (GLR)

Preparing for a global community : achieving an international perspective in higher education by Sarah M Pickert( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report discusses the response of colleges and universities in the United States to the need of graduate students to become equipped to make personal and public policy decisions as citizens of an international society. Curriculum changes are showing a tightening of foreign language standards in schools of higher education and, throughout the curriculum, faculty are including material from other countries and advances in computer and satellite communication to enhance the international experience without leaving the classroom. Additionally, the international focus on higher education has been boosted through a major U.S. initiative that tripled federal spending on undergraduate study abroad. The United States is also cooperating with foreign representatives in working with the Economic Community and the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization to standardize educational credential reporting, licensing, and certification. Governments are also looking with increased regulatory fervor upon joint educational business ventures. Steps that faculty and administrators can take to improve international education on their campuses are explored, including widening the curriculum to expose students to other cultures, widening opportunities for international contact, and evaluating organizational structures that help or hinder international activities. Contains approximately 200 references and an index. (GLR)
Making sense of administrative leadership : the 'L' word in higher education by Estela Mara Bensimon( Book )

Faculty job satisfaction : women and minorities in peril by Martha W Tack( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Given the impending shortage of prospective college faculty that will exist by the year 2000, the topics of faculty job satisfaction, recruitment, and retention must be given priority attention. Moreover, the faculty of the future must reflect the diversity of the population to be served; consequently, immediate actions must be taken to ensure that faculty positions are made attractive to women and minorities alike. Numerous internal stressors uniquely affecting women and minorities must be recognized and dealt with to enhance job satisfaction and create a better fit between the faculty role and the person involved. It has been shown that women faculty members are less satisfied with their positions than their male counterparts because they are often forced to sacrifice more in terms of their personal lives in order to meet the demands of their jobs, as well as their families. As for minority faculty members, they generally find themselves less likely to be tenured compared to whites, are often concerned about lower salaries, feel isolated and less supported, and often encounter prejudice and racism. Leaders and faculty in higher education must implement a variety of recruiting and retention strategies if a faculty representing a diverse culture is to become a reality. Actions include: (1) recruiting women and minorities into undergraduate and graduate programs in sufficient numbers to fill the pool for faculty positions; (2) attracting women into disciplines where they are currently underrepresented; and (3) using incentives for departments to diversify. Contains an index and over 200 references. (Glr)
