Anyone interested or involved in mentoring relationships will enjoy this book and joining other colleagues to discuss how we can strengthen mentoring at KSU. Johnson’s book is the definitive guide for higher education faculty who wish to excel as mentors to students and new faculty. This research based, no-nonsense guide features cases studies, strategies, best practices, and recommendations for professors who wish to excel in mentoring.

“The real strength of this book is that it can be used by faculty members and academic administrators in any institutional setting and any discipline. Johnson's review of the risks and rewards on this important dynamic are comprehensive and very useable. It is a wonderful perspective on one of the most meaningful relationships a faculty member can have” Steve Janosik, Education Review.

CETL is hosting a WebCT Vista Workshop aimed specifically at individuals who are working on WebCT Vista Course TEMPLATES for Spring 2008 and later courses. Faculty are welcome to stop in anytime between 1:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m.

Several faculty members have requested course templates in order to prepare and submit their online courses to the Quality Matters Peer Review process. Designing and working with course templates differs somewhat from the procedures and issues that operate at the course section level, so interested faculty will benefit from additional instruction and/or assistance as they begin work on their course templates.

Join Dan Paracka and Dede Yow for a discussion of Khaled Hosseini’s novel The Kiterunner on Sept. 20, 3-5pm. The novel tells the story of a “privileged young narrator, who comes of age during the last peaceful days of the monarchy [in Afghanistan 1970’s], just before his country’s revolution and invasion by Russian forces.” Isabel Allende writes that “all the great themes of literature and of life are the fabric of this extraordinary novel: love, honor, guilt, fear, redemption.” As Dan Paracka observes, “Paternalism strips away power as one party supposes to know what is best for another.” Join us for an energizing and intellectually engaging conversation.

This session is designed to explore ways faculty can provide evidence of the quality and significance of their professional service activities. Documenting professional service is often seen as more challenging than documenting effective teaching or research and creative activity. Because the new KSU tenure and promotion guidelines require that such evidence be provided by faculty being considered for tenure and promotion, this session is intended to address ways this might be accomplished. Participants will discuss what is meant by the quality and significance of professional service, and how it might be documented in the realm of faculty service roles in the institution, in our disciplines, and in the external community.

CETL is pleased to offer four (4) faculty development classes next month in support of the Quality Matters (QM) Online Course Peer Review process. These 4-hour “Improving Your Online Course” sessions will provide you with hands-on experience using the QM Rubric.

Please note, however, that we do plan to offer several “Developing Your Online Course” training sessions later this semester which may be more appropriate for faculty new to online teaching.
Completion of this curriculum will satisfy the requirement that faculty who teach a peer-reviewed online course must also complete an appropriate development course prior to receiving $50 per student of the special tuition rate in spring 2008.
