Teaching notes to casebook one

Front Cover
"Teaching Notes to Casebook I: Faculty Employment Policies" is the companion to "Casebook I: Faculty Employment Policies," which presents six cases developed by the Project on Faculty Appointments at Harvard Graduate School of Education. These teaching notes provide detailed suggestions and strategies for leading an effective classroom or workshop discussion about each of Casebook I's six case studies, all of which explore and analyze efforts to bring about institutional change. The case studies address the following issues: How can an institution move forward and make progress in areas that have stymied its leaders for years? How can an academic administrator effect positive change on several fronts at once while tackling head-on some of the most contentious and complex issues in faculty employment? How can an institution define and evaluate faculty productivity while taking into account disciplinary distinctions and diverse faculty interests and assignments? How can a college alter its faculty employment policies during a time of institutional transformation, while simultaneously responding to the distinct needs of multiple campus constituencies? What is the nature of transformative leadership, and what lessons can be learned from educational leaders about initiating, managing, and institutionalizing change? How can an institution respond to external concerns regarding its employment policies while maintaining control of a process with substantive, procedural, and political dimensions? The notes can be used in a variety of teaching settings such as executive education programs and professional development institutions, graduate courses in higher education administration, in-service workshops, and campus-based planning sessions.
"Teaching Notes to Casebook I: Faculty Employment Policies" has two companion volumes: "Casebook I: Faculty Employment Policies "and" Using Cases in Higher Education: A Guide for Faculty and Administrators." "Using Cases in Higher Education: A Guide for Faculty and Administrators" offers general advice concerning using case studies as pedagogical tools, and "Casebook I: Faculty Employment Policies" presents six case studies that highlight a particular challenge regarding faculty employment.
