Faculty Involvement in Inservice Education--Research and Service in a Teaching University.
Baden, Donald J.
Faculty members in schools, colleges, and departments of education can and should be actively involved in research, teaching, and service. Research and service functions are as integral to the mission of the school of education as teaching, and should be scheduled with as much care and planning. In one school of education, a 5-year plan to integrate faculty research, service, and teaching assignments began with the design of a matrix for nonscheduled and scheduled workload, a reward system, and service and research assignment planning. The nonscheduled assignments, comprising 25 percent of the workload, typically consist of student advising, syllabus preparation, and committee work; scheduled assignments of teaching, research, and service make up 75 percent of the faculty workload. Professional Service Units and peer-rated merit increases are awarded for service to the profession. A program has been devised to identify local school district needs and to provide professional assistance through faculty liaisons. Research assignments are planned 1 year in advance. Appended are sample forms and guidelines for faculty service assignments and research activities, an explanation of the Professional Service Units, and proposed research activities. (FG)
