Faculty Publications: Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education

This book mainly offers the biography of Moisés Sáenz (1888-1941), founding architect of Mexico's system of public schooling and former student of John Dewey, describing in particular his roles in creating rural schools, initiating bilingual education (for Mexico's indigenous populations), and experimenting with linkages between schooling and community development.

Writing In The Middle: Grant Writing For Department Chairs, Dr. Janet Stocks 2015 Trinity Washington University

Writing In The Middle: Grant Writing For Department Chairs, Dr. Janet Stocks

Academic Chairpersons Conference Proceedings

As a department chair, your grant writing responsibilities are a bit different from those of a faculty member. In addition to funding your own disciplinary research, you may want to secure external funds to support departmental initiatives. You also have a responsibility to support the grant writing of junior faculty members. This workshop will focus on three main topics: basic grant writing (for those who have not done a lot, or as a refresher — and this is also information you can use when working with new grant writers), sources of funding for programmatic grants and how to support others’ grant ...

Positive Academic Leadership: How To Stop Putting Out Fires And Start Making A Difference, Dr. Jeffrey L. Buller

Academic Chairpersons Conference Proceedings

This workshop is highly interactive with numerous exercises, role-plays, breakout discussions and departmental inventories. It will introduce the concept of positive academic leadership from a number of different perspectives. First, it will explore why academic leaders today so ...


Leading From The Middle: Managing Your Dean...And Others, Dr. Walter H. Gmelch 2015 University of San Francisco

Leading From The Middle: Managing Your Dean...And Others, Dr. Walter H. Gmelch

Academic Chairpersons Conference Proceedings

Department chairs find themselves caught in the middle, swiveling between faculty and administration. Sometimes they don’t know which way to turn — in essence, caught in the godlike role of Janus, a Roman god with two faces looking in two directions at the same time. While chairs don’t have to worry about being deified, they must learn to swivel without appearing dizzy, schizophrenic or “two-faced.” They hold the most unique management position in the country — and the most important role in the university. Walter H. Gmelch has served as chair of three different departments and dean at three universities ...

Thriving In The Middle: Effective Stress Skills For Chairs, Tim Hatfield, Ph.D.

Academic Chairpersons Conference Proceedings

Chairs literally are in the middle of everything important going on in their departments. They do lead from the middle, but they also must cope with the unique array of stressors they face every day because of their role as chair. Many demands are directed at them from their department colleagues, students, and higher administration, regardless of whether sufficient time or resources exist to meet the demands. This hands-on, participatory workshop will help participants discuss and reflect on these inevitable stressors, with an emphasis on their preferred stress prevention and stress reduction skills.
