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.

The happiest and most successful academics are those who blend professional tasks. This workshop will invite participants to seek ways to merge research interests with traditional academic responsibilities in order to alleviate burnout and envision ways to capture more fully work that they are already doing or would like to be doing. By viewing interests and expertise through the lens of institutional mission statements and initiatives, teacher-scholars find opportunities for engaging in personally satisfying work that also aligns with institutional goals.

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) uses methodology from the various disciplines to examine student learning and classroom practices for the purposes of improving one's own teaching and culminating in dissemination of a scholarly product. Misconceptions about SoTL and its rigor abound, and SoTL microcultures differ by discipline. Chairs and Deans are invited to attend this workshop to learn how to evaluate and encourage rigorous teaching-related scholarship within their colleges.

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.

This workshop is designed for full-time faculty not on the tenure track who will be submitting their portfolios in Fall for a promotion 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.

KSU is required to document and justify that each faculty member is qualified to teach assigned courses. I will provide best practices for writing justifications for faculty whose teaching assignments are based on qualifications other than traditional academic credentials. KSU is also required to notify SACSCOC of any proposed substantive changes in accordance with SACSCOC Substantive Change policy and, when necessary, obtain approval prior to the initiation of the changes. I will discuss common substantive changes at KSU, the steps for addressing these changes, and implications for unreported substantive changes.

It is the responsibility of our leadership and supervisors to deliver clear feedback for positive performance as well as areas of opportunities for achieving results.
