Books on Faculty Development

Post tenure faculty development : building a system of faculty improvement and appreciation - Alstete, Jeffrey, Educational Resources Information Center
Call Number: Available online from ERIC or microfiche available from FSU Gov Docs Microfiche ED 1.310/2:440603
Publication Date: ERIC-HE digest series, EDO-HE-2000-2. Washington, DC : ERIC Clearinghouse on Higher Education, Insti
This digest suggests post-tenure faculty development programs as a way to address pressures on the tenure system and calls for the elimination of tenure in higher education. The paper notes that tenure policies are being impacted by internal factors such as the uncapping of the mandatory retirement age and the aging of faculty, as well as by external forces such as increased use of information technology, globalization of the curriculum, a more diverse student population, and negative public perceptions about the tenure system. The paper examines current practices of faculty development, takes note of post-tenure faculty development programs currently used by several institutions, and suggests several strategies for building improved post-tenure faculty development programs.

Faculty Collaboration: enhancing the quality of scholarship and teaching - Austin, Ann E. ; Roger G. Baldwin; Jonathan D. Fife (Editor); AEHE Staff
Call Number: UMCP McK Stacks LB1778 .A93 1991
ISBN: 9781878380128
Publication Date: ASHE-ERIC higher education report. Washington, DC : School of Education and Human Development, Georg
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.

Faculty at Work: motivation, expectation, satisfaction - Blackburn, Robert T; Janet H. Lawrence
Call Number: UMCP McK Stacks LB1778.2 .B53 1995
ISBN: 9780801849428
Publication Date: Baltimore : Johns Hopkins University Press, 1995.
With the ultimate goal of helping faculty and administrators make effective and positive decisions, Blackburn and Lawrence explain and predict faculty behavior in three key areas: research, teaching, and service and scholarship. They describe how individual and institutional characteristics interact in a way that can help faculty fulfill their academic missions - or can prevent them from doing so. After looking at how faculty spend their time (and why), the authors examine the crucial ways in which faculty and administrative views of the workplace differ - and how these differing views have serious implications for the work environment. In conclusion, the authors use what they have learned as a springboard for speculating on the future of faculty work. Appendixes reproduce the authors' extensive survey instruments and provide technical explanations of the analyses.

Faculty Workload Studies: Perspectives, Needs, and Future Directions. ERIC Digest. - Meyer, K.A.
Call Number: Full text available online via ERIC or in microfiche, UMCP Gov Info. Microfiche ED 1.310/2:418654
Publication Date: ERIC digest (ERIC Clearinghouse on Higher Education), EDO-HE-98-1. Washington, DC : ERIC Clearinghou
This digest reviews the literature and discusses issues concerning college faculty workload. Trends in the United States which have created interest in faculty workload issues are identified including faltering state economies in the late 1980s and rising costs of higher education especially of personnel. Criticism of higher education by the business community and many legislators is also noted as contributing to interest in increasing faculty productivity. Reviews of studies on faculty workload suggest that faculty work long hours especially on teaching and teaching-related activities though time spent in the classroom is relatively small. A lack of studies examining productivity in faculty teaching and service is noted. Barriers which hamper finding solutions to the productivity problem are noted such as beliefs that teaching equates with lecturing and that faculty are responsible for all higher education's problems. The report urges a renewed focus on students' learning and alignment of institutional mission, the faculty reward structure, and public expectations. (DB)

Publication Date: 2004-05-21
Changing our colleges and universities into learning institutions has become increasingly important while also becoming more difficult. Faculty learning communities have proven to be effective for addressing institutional challenges, from preparing the faculty of the future and reinvigorating senior faculty, to implementing new courses, curricula, and campus initiatives on diversity and technology. The results of faculty learning community programs parallel for faculty members the results of student learning communities for students, such as retention, deeper learning, respect for other cultures, and greater civic participation. The chapters in this issue of New Directions for Teaching and Learning describe from a practitioner's perspective the history, development, implementation, and results of faculty learning communities across a wide range of institutions and purposes. Institutions are invited to use this volume to initiate faculty learning communities on their campuses.

Peer Review of Teaching: A Sourcebook - Van Note Chism, Nancy; W. J. McKeachie (Foreword by); Grady W. Chism
Call Number: UMCP Mck Stacks LB2333 .C49 2007
ISBN: 9781933371214
Publication Date: Bolton, MA : Anker Pub. Co., ©2007.
The new edition of this bestselling book builds on the author's extensive administrative and consulting experience as well as scholarship on faculty rewards. It includes additional discussion of important foundational issues as well as practical forms and ideas gleaned from disciplinary groups and campuses throughout the nation. Like the first edition of Peer Review of Teaching, this new edition is offered in the hope that providing examples and suggestions will not reduce the important work of peer review to mere forms or rigid procedures, but will empower faculty to articulate criteria and standards, perform the reviews systematically and thoughtfully, and realize that engaging in peer review is an approachable and worthwhile professional task. Updated to reflect the emphasis on student learning as the ultimate goal of college teaching, it incorporates new ideas and references from the literature. The most notable change in this edition is a discussion of peer review within special contexts for teaching, such as clinics, studios, and practice settings. The turn to active engagement in learning has also led to increased use of problem-based learning, the case study method, and other approaches that traditional forms for peer review do not address. Similarly, the explosion of the use of instructional technology calls for an articulation of new approaches to evaluating web-based instruction.
