Alstete synthesizes the debate around posttenure review and develops a model for faculty development that combines the best principles of posttenure review with the long-standing practice of faculty assessment and development. He also explains why posttenure faculty development can make a difference in dealing with mandatory retirement caps, changes in student demographics, technology, and globalization. Even if your campus is not trying to implement posttenure faculty development, this report will make you stop and think about the latest practices and innovations.
