Faculty Roles and Responsibilities: Update on Recent Activities and Plans.
Illinois State Board of Higher Education, Springfield.
This brief paper reports on recent workshops and conferences on faculty roles and responsibilities held as part of continuing efforts in the Illinois Board of Higher Education's Priorities, Quality, and Productivity initiative. Introductory paragraphs recall the establishment of the initiative and earlier events and efforts. A report on two workshops held in 1994 to exchange ideas and information notes that discussion centered on faculty development, breadth of faculty contributions, and incentives and rewards. A description of a 1995 conference on faculty roles and responsibilities reports that the conference took its topics from the 1994 discussions and that there was especially keen interest in instructional development and the departmental context, and in evaluation, particularly peer review. The description notes three papers that participants received before the conference, offers summaries of the opening session on a broader conception of scholarship that would define teaching as a scholarly activity, and describes three discussion sessions on peer review and evaluation, faculty development and support, and encouragement and rewards for instructional excellence. The report concludes with brief description of future plans. (JB)
