Many faculty members think that supervising undergraduate research is a poor use of their time for several reasons, including (a) an inability to get credit toward tenure and promotion, (b) the lack of quality research that is produced by undergraduates, (c) the lack of publications resulting from undergraduate research, (d) the lack of funding for undergraduate research, and (e) the amount of time it takes to train undergraduates, who often graduate before the project is finished. Come join us for a conversation regarding common misconceptions about undergraduate research as well as strategies to address such misconceptions.

Misconceptions about learning abound, from the idea that we only use 10% of our brain to many unfounded beliefs about learning styles. Based on a review of 50 years of research on learning, this seminar will identifies several beliefs about learning, dispel the ones that are simply unfounded, and distill empirically grounded findings from the learning sciences into seven interconnected principles. Equipped with solid knowledge about learning, we will brainstorm productive teaching strategies likely to foster deep, lasting learning in our students.

A department chair is increasingly required to find creative ways to extend the departmental budget as state appropriations to KSU and other state institutions have become tighter. Strategies for increasing the department’s budget to cover essential personnel and operating expenses include advocating on behalf of the faculty and department to the dean and other senior administrators on campus for funds and the prospects of external fundraising. Rarely have department chairs been provided with training to effectively market and advocate for their department. This workshop will engage department chairs in constructing a marketing plan for the department and developing compelling ways to communicate the department’s strengths.

Perhaps the most important role of a department chair is to foster the growth and development of faculty members in the department. Serving as a mentor for faculty in the department means ensuring the professional development of the faculty members and assignment of faculty responsibilities (e.g., course schedules, service responsibilities, student advising, etc.) in ways that help faculty to manage their time efficiently while ensuring effective running of the department. This workshop will provide strategies to department chairs for these mentoring and human resource management roles.

Though they don’t occur frequently, it is likely that a department chair will have to deal with some emergencies that impact the department. There are physical and human emergencies. Examples of physical emergencies might include bad weather or damage to the classroom building that result in a cancelling of classes. Human emergencies can involve a faculty member. Faculty emergencies might include a severe accident or physical/psychological illnesses that render the faculty member unable to continue his/her classes. There is also the situation where a faculty member feels that a student is a danger to him/herself or others in the class. This workshop will provide strategies for handling these emergencies effectively with minimal disruption to the class experience.

As KSU has grown and as instructional costs have risen, the percentage of course sections taught by part-time faculty members has increased. Part-Time faculty teach in critical curricular areas such as general education courses and required courses in major programs. Since part-time faculty members are typically employed in other jobs, often have family responsibilities, teach at irregular hours, and receive small salaries for their part-time teaching, they might lack the opportunity to engage in the kinds of professional development to ensure a strong academic course experience for students.

Factors important for the success of part-time faculty include:

Academic freedom is essential to higher education and its purpose is to promote free search for truth and its free exposition. Academic freedom applies both to teaching and research. Freedom in teaching protects the rights of the teacher in teaching and of the student to freedom in learning. Freedom in research is fundamental to advancement of truth. Academic freedom however carries with it duties and responsibilities correlative with its rights. Academic freedom and responsibility have long been a topic for public concern and debate. This workshop will discuss what academic freedom is and what it is not.
