This workshop explores the challenges faced by associate professors and the role of mentoring in contributing to academic career advancement and success.  Recent literature and practice now offer new, more flexible approaches to mentoring in which faculty build a network of "multiple mentors" who can address a variety of career competencies.  In this interactive session, you will identify your professional goals, strengths, and skills that you want to develop; explore mentoring as a medium for helping you meet those goals; "map" your own mentoring networks--what they are and could be, drawing on a range of examples; and discuss best practices for seeking, developing, and cultivating a network of mentors.

Faculty mentoring can offer a vital contribution to a successful academic career, particularly for women and faculty of color. The most common form of mentoring has been a "traditional model," which is defined by a one-on-one relationship between an experienced faculty member who guides the career development of an early career faculty member.  Formal mentoring programs have been largely designed to fit this traditional definition.  Recent research, however, has indicated the emergence of new, more flexible approaches to mentoring in which faculty build a network of multiple "mentoring partners" who can address a variety of career competencies.

In this interactive session,, participants will identify common roadblocks to success for faculty across the career trajectory; recognize both traditional and emerging models of mentoring; explore how to design and implement a networked mentoring program; and discuss outcomes, best practices, and resources on network-based mentoring for use to by faculty and administrators.

In recent years, numerous calls for education reform have focused on the mountain of evidence for the effectiveness of active learning approaches. Though the evidence is overwhelming, changing how you teach needn’t be. In this workshop, we will demonstrate tweaks, tips, and tools for increasing engagement and critical thinking in the classroom. We will discuss how to discover your students’ gaps and misconceptions, and how to work with that information to improve learning. Bring your syllabus and we will help you identify a small change you can make that will foster active learning.

Dina Newman is an associate professor in the Thomas H. Gosnell School of Life Sciences, who has a recent publication with Gosnell colleague Kate Wright, called "What Do Students Think the Arrow Means?" CBE Life Sci Educ 13:338-348. doi:  10.1187/cbe.CBE-13-09-0188

Michael Brown

For this Teachers on Teaching session, Michael Brown will share his insights on how classrooms can become communities.

Our student-ratings-of-teaching-effectiveness surveys ask whether “the instructor established a positive learning environment.”  What makes for such an environment?  We might define it in the negative—as the absence of disrespect or distraction.  In courses where a substantial portion of the content may be controversial or disruptive, however, a positive learning environment requires more than the absence of problems; it requires the presence of an intentional classroom community.  In the face of a variety of obstacles, how can our classrooms become communities, and how do such communities support effective teaching and learning?

Michael Brown is an Assistant Professor in the Department of History, College of Liberal Arts, and a member of the Museum Studies program faculty.

Abstract:

In 2007 the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) published the first-ever national survey of occupational stress, and found that stress among academics exceeds that of the general population. Since this report, work stress—which, we argue, is inextricably linked to lack of time— has increased due to corporatisation. We believe that in the current climate it is not self-indulgent to acknowledge work stress, but rather is crucial to our own and our students’ intellectual survival. After briefly demonstrating the link between corporatisation and the time crunch, we will focus on the ways in which insights derived from the Slow movement can help us not only to alleviate stress, but also to resist the current emphasis on productivity, efficiency and accountability at the expense of education. In particular, we will examine existing academic advice on time management and collegiality. This talk explores the ways in which the adoption of certain Slow practices can improve our teaching, research and collegial lives as well as create a counter-discourse to that of the corporate university.  We believe that political resistance begins with the individual.

This event is co-sponsored by the Department of History (CLA); School of Communication (CLA); School of Individualized Studies (SOIS); Faculty Career Development in The Wallace Center; and the Office of the Provost.

Intended audience: Department Heads, Chairs, Academic Leaders and those who show high potential for holding leadership positions in the future.

AdvanceRIT again welcomes the acclaimed Michigan Players, this time as “The Chair's Role in Faculty Mentoring” - fashioned as three thematically related vignettes.  This interactive workshop explores the department head’s role in faculty mentoring. In the workshop, participants see a department head discuss a third year review letter with a junior faculty member, welcome a new faculty hire, and check in with an associate professor regarding promotion readiness to the rank of Professor. Developed to showcase positive and potentially problematic mentoring behaviors, these interactive vignettes allow department heads and other academic leaders to think through the ways that they might create a more positive climate for faculty mentoring, both structurally in their department’s policies and inter-personally in the behaviors they adopt and use with their faculty colleagues. This workshop is intended for Department Chairs, Senior Leaders and those who show high potential for holding leadership positions in the future.
