Join Dot Graham for an energizing and intellectually engaging discussion of faculty incivility, bullying, and mobbing based on Twale and De Luca’s book, Faculty Incivility: The Rise of the Academic Bully Culture and What to Do About It. "This important book addresses the prevalence of faculty incivility, camouflaged aggression, and the rise of an academic bully culture in higher education. The authors show how to recognize a bully culture that may form as a result of institutional norms, organizational structure, academic culture, and systemic changes. Filled with real-life examples, the book offers research-based suggestions for dealing with this disruptive and negative behavior in the academic workplace" (from Amazon.com). “The authors combine their thorough knowledge about incivility and workplace bullying with their deep insights into academic culture and changes taking place in the higher education sector.

The first days of your course can be the most important of the semester. The tone you set will either grab your students, or lose them -- by withdrawal or apathetic retention.

"Successful Beginnings for College Teaching" by Angela Provitera McGlynn discusses some strategies and tools to get off to a great start. Sign up for the book club now, and you'll get the book right away, so you can employ some of them to start Spring semester. (It's a short book with some ready suggestions.) Then come to the discussion, and talk about how it's going.

We've learned about Learner-Centered Teaching, and maybe we've even tried it a bit. But how do we assess what we've done? How do we justify to our students and our colleagues (and our supervisors) that this is worth doing, even if it's a bit painful at first?

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.
