Alternative Models of Professorial Roles: New Languages To Reimagine Faculty Work.
Bean, John P.
Journal of Higher Education, v69 n5 p496-512 Sep-Oct 1998
Argues that the language currently used at research universities to describe faculty work is constraining, emphasizing quantity as opposed to quality, extrinsic as opposed to intrinsic characteristics, lack of trust of faculty, and emphasis on procurement of resources. An alternative use of language is proposed, suggesting that, if faculty can talk about work differently, they can approach it differently. (MSE)
