Reversing the Telescope: Viewing Individual Activities within a Collective Context.
Lynton, Ernest A.
Metropolitan Universities: An International Forum, v7 n3 p41-55 Win 1996
The work of college faculty is typically assessed in isolation, not within the broader context of the collective task of the department, college, or university. It is time to reverse the telescope to view individuals as part of the departmental or collegial unit and to assess the extent to which their work contributes to collective needs and priorities.
