Restructuring the university reward system : a report by Sid W. Richardson Foundation( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the results of two years of work by a 12-member task force which surveyed faculty and administrators at 51 universities regarding their opinions about the importance and stature of teaching as the central role of the university. Over 800 questionnaires were returned, with one from the provost at each institution and the rest from randomly selected faculty. The institutions were selected from those having membership in the National Association of State universities and Land-Grant Colleges and in the Teacher Education Council of State Colleges. The survey found that while the majority of respondents had gained rank and tenure, they considered the system of faculty rewards to be in need of change. There was general agreement that faculty were under pressure to do research and to publish in refereed academic journals in order to gain tenure and promotions. It was felt that there was less emphasis on excellence in teaching and professional service as the basis for earning rewards. Generally, it was seen that new tenure, promotion, and merit models must be developed and implemented. Appendices include a description of the Richardson Foundation Forum, a description of the Restructuring Task Force, and an explanation of the Differentiated Staffing Model. (Jls)

Principals for the schools of Texas : a seamless web of professional development by David A Erlandson( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Addressing educational accountability concerns requires a new level of collaborative activity among state government, universities, local school districts, education service centers, professional associations, and the business community. Collaborative efforts can obtain greater efficiency and cost-effectiveness by using stakeholders' strengths to address the principal's career, from recruitment through retirement, as a seamless web of professional experiences. This report develops the rationale for recommendations concerning the recruitment, preparation, and career development of Texas principals. Recruitment and selection should involve all stakeholders, embody vigorous procedures and job-related criteria, and ensure consideration of only able, genuinely interested individuals. Principal preparation should comprise preservice and induction stages. A preservice, 36-hour masters-level program should be delivered primarily by universities; stress practical, problem-solving activities in school settings; and culminate in a state examination conferring provisional certification. Induction should involve collaborative guidance and supervision, training and growth opportunities provided by professional associations, and possible recommendation for professional principal certification (renewable at 5-year intervals, based on demonstrated, continuing competence). Funds should be directed from general preparation purposes to intensive, specific training for a carefully selected group of aspiring professionals. Contains five appendices and an executive summary.
