The College of Education and Human Development invites faculty and doctoral students to join for Leadership: A Professional Development Workshop on Tuesday, June 15, from 12-2 p.m.
In addition to the faculty roles of research, teaching and service to the university, an important role that can be a significant contribution of faculty is leadership in the various disciplines and professions they represent. Such professional leadership is important in contributing to the nature and directions that the scholarly disciplines take which influences the content and directions of the education in those disciplines promulgated by the university. It can also enhance the reputation of the university in the wider scholarly community. Many faculty receive little experience in professional development during their graduate education and are generally on their own in developing avenues of influence within their field.
The workshop will be directed by Professor Frank Farley of the College of Education and Human Development who has exceptionally wide experience in leadership in the professions of education, psychology and the social sciences. The workshop will cover such features of professional success as effective leveraging of one's scholarly expertise, calibrating one's trajectory of professional engagement, the importance of willingness to volunteer, the power of yes, time commitment, collaboration, being a joiner, conventioneering, thought leadership, the power of media and name recognition, being a founder, and more. This interactive workshop will be open to all interested CEHD faculty and doctoral students. It may be of particular interest to early-career faculty, and will be conducted virtually via Zoom for two hours. Follow-up individual consultations of participants with Dr. Farley will be available.
