Overview

This guide to helping faculty prepare for professional review, whether an annual event or at a key moment in their career, will help make this often stressful and confusing experience less challenging and provide faculty a sense of mastery over the process. It shows faculty how to plan ahead by learning the rules, getting organized, developing a line of research, collecting baseline data, and fostering interpersonal relationships. It then gives practical advice and examples on documenting one’s work in all areas of teaching and scholarship.

The second edition of this best-selling book features some new materials designed to help faculty prepare for a major professional review, including post-tenure reviews. New areas covered are how to

  • Document teaching with technology,
  • Manage changing guidelines and policies
  • Use annual review materials as the foundation for a professional portfolio

In addition to updating references and resources, the author has expanded sections on scholarship, teaching and advising, how to best document faculty role and impact as part of a team, and on assessing collegiality.

Appropriate for faculty at large universities and small colleges, public or private institutions, and unionized campuses, this book enumerates important questions to be asked and the issues that should be considered as faculty approach the review process. Concrete resources, examples, references, and a faculty checklist make this a practical tool for any instructor facing a professional evaluation.
