Faculty have to create a classroom climate welcoming of student participation and still productive for learning, and that can be a tricky balance. When the opinions expressed are unsophisticated or misinformed, or punctuated by an inappropriate tone, it can be challenging. This seminar will review best practices to create a good climate from the get go, and explore what recourse faculty have when situations reach a boiling point. Using past examples, we will also review relevant policies and procedures so that chairs can effectively advise their faculty.

In this workshop, participants will be invited to consider and to apply the term “scholarly” to teaching and mentoring, professional service, and scholarship and creative activity in preparing for both annual and multi-year reviews. Being able to describe the scholarly dimension or nature of all faculty work is an important step in articulating the quality and significance of that work. Furthermore, approaching all work as scholarly work also can create additional opportunities for scholarship and creative activity that may not be immediately visible.
