Bowman, Richard F.
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v88 n5 p141-145 2015
In the everydayness of faculty meetings, collegial conversations mirror distinctive dynamics and practices, which either enhance or undercut organizational effectiveness. A cluster of conversational practices affect how colleagues connect, engage, interact, and influence others during faculty meetings in diverse educational settings. The principles embedded in the video games of middle-school and high-school students provide engaging insights into the essence of vibrant, productive faculty meetings.
