Department Chair Series
Faculty Evaluation: Developing Confidence and Building Skills

January 26, 2:00-3:30 pm

Please register by JANUARY 3 so materials can be provided to you in advance. 

Writing annual performance reviews is the least favorite task for most department chairs.  Chairs just aren’t always prepared for the dynamics and requirements of this process. Join Vice Provost Christine Licata and chair colleagues for a workshop designed to help you develop your own strategies for writing effective and defensible appraisals that are both summative and formative in nature.  

You will be working from Jeffrey L. Buller’s book: Best Practices in Faculty Evaluation available as an e-book in our library via this Permanent Link. If you are accessing the library from off campus, you will be prompted to login with your RIT username and password.  Workshop discussions will be based on specific readings and case studies from this book (you will be emailed the assignments). Discussion will center on how to prepare for writing the annual review and conducting review meetings.  The goal of this session is to assist you in feeling more confident, competent, and comfortable with the faculty evaluation process.

Department Chair Series: Emotional Intelligence
February 9, 2-3:30 pm 

This interactive workshop focuses on foundational concepts and understanding individual Emotional Intelligence reports. Attendees will participate in individual activities and a small group exercise at the end. 

Exploring Emotional Intelligence (EQ) focuses leaders on understanding their own emotions in order to better understand, hear, respect and work with others. The skills associated with EQ support the leader’s ability to respond to situations and people in keeping with who they are rather than what’s emotionally happening in the moment – particularly under challenging circumstances. Participants gain individualized perspective on their own EQ scores and explore strategies and tools for improvement in each of four domains – Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness and Relationship Management.

Prior to the workshop participants should:

  • Read Chapters 1 and 2 in the book.
  • Take the Emotional Intelligence Appraisal® (instructions are available in the book).
  • Bring your report and book with you to the workshop.
About Maura:
  • Sr. Talent Development Manager – 3 years RIT
  • 25 years – Director, Manager and Consultant – Human Resources, Talent Management, Leadership and Organization Development
  • M.S. Human Resources University of Scranton / B.S. Management Fairfield University

You must register by December 17 in order to receive the book via USPS prior to the University’s holiday shut down. A Zoom link will be provided upon registration.
