Reigniting the Flame: TQM Tactics for Faculty Rejuvenation.
Chambliss, Catherine
This paper discusses implementation of Total Quality Management (TQM) tactics for faculty development at Ursinus College (Pennsylvania). Emphasis is on the use of TQM to improve the marketing of faculty and institutional achievements. The paper reports that the administration's use of informal meetings has enhanced faculty initiatives in such areas as recruiting new students, mentoring, and improving educational quality. College faculty are urged to be prepared to package and market their achievements before the public and that this requirement is a powerful reinforcement for faculty. In addition, the new demands of outcome assessment in teaching are viewed as a motivating innovation resulting in improved instruction. The college also uses the "Distinctive Teaching Survey" as part of an annual self-evaluation process. This survey permits the faculty to communicate their peak moments in the classroom and has garnered considerable support among faculty. A copy of the survey accompanies the paper. (GLR)
