Civility, Leadership, and the Classroom.
Richardson, Steven M.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n77 p77-86 Spr 1999
By helping faculty collaborate to enrich their teaching abilities and by supporting them when faculty/student relationships occasionally fail, the department chair models leadership skills that faculty themselves can use. The skills of leadership correspond very closely to good teaching skills, and can be combined with the skills of principled negotiation and confidential listening. (Author/MSE)
