Slow your role: Troubling (our) assumptions about higher education
This semester-long discussion activity is designed for onboarding faculty at any rank or status, including new faculty or graduate teaching assistant/associate orientations, faculty learning communities, mid-career professional development programs, transition to administrative roles such as department chair or associate dean, and the like. Course: Organizational culture analysis for higher education personnel at any rank or status, including tenure-track or lecturer faculty; graduate teaching assistants; doctoral students; academic senators; university administrators, cabinet members, and other management personnel; faculty learning communities; or faculty transitioning to leadership roles. Objectives: By the end of this activity, participants will be able to: (1) identify aspects of their institution’s organizational culture; (2) appraise how neoliberalism shapes higher education in general and their own organizations in particular; and (3) develop and articulate ideas for post-pandemic changes to higher education in general and their own organizations in particular.
