Shawnalee Whitney

Session is being recorded and will be available later.

A 2-hour version of an earlier version of this training is available at: https://mediaspace.uaa.alaska.edu/media/Preparation+for+Faculty+Evaluation/0_0toz3g6k/76038642
John Petraitis
01:17:35
I recommend you think about which criteria before you submit your file.
Kelly Smith

Can the "Marked Strength" change based on workloads from one review period to the next?
Marian Bruce
01:21:25
There is supposed to be a marked strength identified for the whole file, for the whole period of review
Travis Hedwig
01:21:31
can the “marked strength” be integration across teaching, research, and service?
Shawnalee Whitney
01:21:53
Good question, Travis. It's generally one of the three.
Shawnalee Whitney
01:22:39
That said, Marian and John may have a different take.
Teresa Stephenson
01:26:40
Can you give me an idea of what the criteria is for a person already a full professor going up for tenure
Shawnalee Whitney
01:29:03
We'll be sure they address this, @Teresa Stephenson
Travis Hedwig
01:29:16
I’m looking at page 23 of the new FEPPs and I see language about “integration of scholarly accomplishments across these components”. I have been encouraged by a more senior/experienced faculty to consider doing this but want to make sure that is ok
Travis Hedwig

Marian Bruce
01:30:40
There's nothing saying there can't be more than one marked strength, so I think it would be fine
Shawnalee Whitney
01:30:48
Ah, Travis. I see. We'll be sure this is addressed in the Q&A.
Marian Bruce
01:35:04
You can find the criteria benchmark handouts here:https://www.uaa.alaska.edu/academics/faculty-services/faculty-evaluation/training-materials.cshtml
Marian Bruce
01:36:50
@Teresa, if you look at the benchmark handouts at the link above, you can see the overall criteria for Professors. You'll also want to see your college evaluation criteria, which you can find here: https://www.uaa.alaska.edu/academics/faculty-services/faculty-evaluation/
Marian Bruce
01:38:29
The criteria for tenure is performance at whatever rank at which tenure is granted (either associate professor or professor)
Teresa Stephenson

We have sample files that faculty have agreed to have shared with colleagues. They illustrate the tabs, etc.

We will post this PowerPoint as well
Shawnalee Whitney

Jennifer Stone (English) has offered sessions in the past on creating a file that is audience-focused and rhetorical in nature, making a strong case. There's a video available to all of you in the ePortfolio template for files.
Shawnalee Whitney
01:44:45
Adding emphasis here to what John Petraitis is saying: be direct in identifying the marked strength AND in how you've addressed items that have been identified as an area for improvement.
Shawnalee Whitney
01:47:30
Note re: teaching effectiveness, those of us in Faculty Development and Instructional Support (CAFE, AI&e, and CCEL) send you a letter at the end of the year that documents the workshops you've attended or any learning communities you've been in. Use this in your file!
Shawnalee Whitney
01:48:57
We're also happy to have individual consultations with you to help you select a groups of workshops or a series on a given topic, pedagogy, or issue, that will help you address a particular topic more deeply.
Shawnalee Whitney
01:51:48
If you will be working on your file this summer, CAFE will be coordinating a peer-led, colleague-to-colleague community around file development and support. This is the fourth summer we've offered this type of group and it makes a real difference in not feeling isolated, getting feedback, etc. Watch for registration information coming soon!
Travis Hedwig
01:52:27
I’m looking forward to the peer-support group :)
Shawnalee Whitney
01:52:47
We can offer recommendations re: Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATs) that can be deployed as a way of collecting student feedback beyond IDEA.
Shawnalee Whitney
01:55:48
If you receive a letter of thanks for your service on a committee, save it for your ePortfolio.
Shawnalee Whitney
01:57:52
Excellent to know about the memo, Marian. Thank you.
Marian Bruce
02:04:09
This session is being recorded. The PowerPoint will be made available
Teresa Stephenson
02:04:59
I was always told not to use co-authors or former colleagues... is that not true here?
Shawnalee Whitney
02:08:55
Re: 'Marked Strength," I think it's important to ensure that you have extensive, sound evidence in the area(s) you have selected.
John Petraitis
02:13:06
Thank you, Songho. Good advice.
John Petraitis
02:15:08
Again, a longer version of this training is available at https://mediaspace.uaa.alaska.edu/media/Preparation+for+Faculty+Evaluation/0_0toz3g6k/76038642
Teresa Stephenson
02:16:55
I have to say that the electronic file is a big barrier
Shawnalee Whitney
02:18:15
Teresa, our ePortfolio folks provide individual and group support through sessions, like the one Paul will do today.
Teresa Stephenson
02:18:38
Okay, I was trying to figure out how to get help and wasn't seeing anything
John Petraitis
02:20:10
Best wishes, everyone.
Susan Meskis
02:20:18

Raghu Srinivasan
