The department chair : new roles, responsibilities, and challenges by Alan T Seagren( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 556 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)

The Academic chairperson's handbook by John W Creswell( Book )

7 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book champions the importance of chairing an academic department (or division) and focuses attention on the strategies "excellent" chairs use in building a positive work environment for faculty and releasing individual faculty potential. The framework is based on human, organizational, and career development; systems theory; and interpersonal communications. The "excellent" chairs are 200 individuals on 70 campuses who were nominated by chief academic officers and faculty development specialists. In part I, several difficulties chairs encounter in building a positive work environment for promoting faculty growth and professional development are introduced. A self-assessment inventory is presented, followed by three chapters outlining 15 chair strategies, organized around the themes of chairperson self-development, role as an academic leader, and interpersonal relations with faculty. Part ii applies the strategies, first as a series of processes for addressing specific faculty situations and second as a general guide for building a positive work environment. The strategies include: helping newly hired faculty become adjusted; improving the teaching performance of faculty; improving the scholarship of faculty; refocusing faculty efforts; and addressing personal issues. A synopsis of a national project on academic department chairpersons is offered in an appendix. (67 references.) (Jdd)

Faculty research performance, lessons from the sciences and the social sciences by John W Creswell( Book )

13 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The literature on faculty research performance is reviewed, with a focus on research by individual faculty members. The literature on the sociology of science and data-based results from sociological studies are emphasized. Attention is directed to measures of performance, the explanations and specific correlates likely to influence high research performance, and the practical implications of empirical studies for faculty development and evaluation. Three common measures of individual research performance are publication counts, citation counts, and peer and colleague ratings. Productivity researchers attempt to explain the variation in faculty research performance by psychological-individual factors, including superior intellectual ability, a strong motivation and drive to perform, personality traits, and background characteristics. Access to resources and advantages and reinforcements have also been linked to productivity. Additional correlates of productivity have also been investigated: prestige of doctoral program and employing institutions, rank and tenure, early productivity. Numerous correlate studies in the past 40 years have resulted in a profile of productive researchers. In addition to ideas to promote faculty development and evaluation, suggestions for future research of faculty research productivity are offered. Ten pages of references and an index are provided.

Dimensions of balance in an administrator's life by John W Creswell( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This article presents a new model for viewing and implementing balance in the lives of higher education administrators derived from a review of the educational, psychological, and management literature. Rejecting the traditional, two dimensional model for balancing work with the rest of life, the new model envisions four concentric circles of interactive life dimensions: values, renewal, life roles and context. The inner circle of the model contains the personal values which govern an individual's life. The second circle consists of inner dimensions: areas of personal renewal including the emotional, intellectual, social, spiritual, physical and occupational aspects. The third circle of the model moves to external dimensions, to involvement and participation in the world. In this category are the roles administrators play as they implement their values and allot time and energy for areas of renewal including the roles of parent, spouse, friend, citizen, leisurite, learner, son or daughter, homemaker, and worker. The final circle is the context in which the administrator exercises his or her role including gender identity, racial or ethnic identity, socioeconomic conditions, educational background, family background and structure and work place factors. Integrating these dimensions can balance an administrator's life. Includes 34 references. (Jb)
