The "Certification" Paradigm.
Smith, Hoke; Walvoord, Barbara
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n65 p17-23 Spr 1996
A certification system for college faculty must effectively balance supply and demand, be criterion-referenced, choose criteria that command community confidence, be known throughout the market in which a given faculty member will operate, protect academic freedom, and provide a visible mark of distinction for faculty. While such a system has advantages, each advantage also raises concerns. (MSE)
