The Department as Double Agent: The Call for Department Change and Renewal.
Wolverton, Mimi; Gmelch, Walter H.; Sorenson, Dean
Innovative Higher Education, v22 n3 p203-15 Spr 1998
Four prerequisites for college and university departmental change and renewal have been suggested: dedication to teamwork; collective dialog and inquiry about effective teaching; commitment to quality control and rewarding collective goals; and leadership of a purposeful chair. These are discussed in relation to conditions mitigating against departmental change: conflicting faculty interests; turbulent environments; and unclear institutional goals. (Author/MSE)
