Sessions Information

  • January 5, 2019
    1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
    Session Type: Section Programs
    Session Capacity: N/A

    Faculty members are recruited, retained, and promoted for a particular set of skills, including intellectual curiosity and insight, scholarly ability and ambition, disruptive thinking, pedagogical expertise and potential, and commitment to student success. While Associate Deans are (almost exclusively) selected from among the pool of faculty members, the position of Associate Dean involves a very different, and in some ways incompatible, set of skills. This session focuses on how Associate Deans can develop and apply four essential skills for their work: Leadership, Project Management, Communication, and Integrity. Panelists will discuss each area, provide examples from their own experience of successful (or unsuccessful!) application of those skills, and offer practical suggestions on how to develop and/or improve in these areas. A portion of the session will be dedicated to separate scenario-driven discussion groups and/or mentoring sessions for section members.
