Teaching effectiveness is a complex variable to assess. As we know, it cannot rely on students evaluations of teaching alone, and instead it needs to be triangulated with other metrics to get the full picture of student learning, satisfaction, and success. In this workshop we will explore best practices to evaluate teaching. We will also discuss how to mentor faculty so they are well positioned to write a compelling teaching narrative, and review campus resources for struggling faculty.

We all know intuitively that people have different needs and predictable anxieties at different points in their career. Incorporating this intuition into our leadership style can pay off in increased satisfaction and productivity. This session will review basic adult lifespan developmental theory, introduce the research on faculty career stages (with some surprising results), and discuss strategies to weave both bodies of knowledge into our practice as chairs and directors.

This workshop is designed for full-time faculty on the tenure track who will be submitting their portfolios in Fall for a pre-tenure review. While all the rules, schedules, forms and procedures can be found in the Faculty Affairs website, preparing all the relevant documentation is a momentous endeavor that can generate questions and perplexities. Furthermore, the narrative is a genre few faculty are practiced in. We will review requirements and timelines, as well as share common pitfalls and suggestions for crafting an effective portfolio. Full-time non-tenure track faculty in departments that require a third year review should consult with their chairs to understand the expectations for that review.
