Evaluating Faculty Performance

Synopsis

This issue brings new insights to faculty work and its assessment in light of reconsideration of faculty work roles, rapid technological change, increasing bureaucratization of the core work of higher education, and public accountability for performance. With practical advice and information about processes and tools for evaluating individuals as well as academic units, contributors examine evaluating individual faculty work roles in teaching, scholarship, and in outreach and service. They also discuss the changes to faculty work and its evaluation brought by emerging technology and the World Wide Web. Exploring successful methods that individuals, institutions, and promotion and tenure committees are using evaluations of faculty performance for career development, this issue is an indispensable guide to academic administrators and institutional researchers involved in the faculty evaluation process. This is the 114th volume of the Jossey-Bass series New Directions for Institutional Research.
