This book is about how to survive university teaching. It is written for new faculties joining academic ranks the first time, those returning to university teaching and those advising doctoral students. Its focus is providing guidance to new faculties in what they should do to establish records of teaching, research and service to be successful in promotion and tenure decisions, and other evaluations. It draws upon the experiences of successful faculties to make it interesting reading while not diluting its substance. To accomplish its objective of providing guidance, it devotes separate chapters to becoming an effective teacher, developing a research record, involvement in service, and the procedures new faculties must follow to receive promotion and tenure. The book recognizes that the procedures for promotion and tenure differ by institution and accounts for these differences in its presentation.A Guide to New Professors Kofi Obeng ...
