Join Simon Jeynes, ISM Senior Consultant, for a day of exploration as we consider how the position of Division Head has dramatically changed in the past decade. Bring your own knowledge of your students, your faculty, and your school cultures. We’ll begin by looking at what the research says about what students want from their teachers, compare that to your own impressions from your students, and use that as the foundation for our deconstruction of the DV job.
By the time we finish, you will be immersed in your roles as faculty advocate and Head’s strategic partner. Simon will lead several exercises, some of which you can use with your faculty, to illustrate salient issues for division heads at all levels. There will be implications for faculty evaluation, faculty professional growth and renewal, scheduling, and student engagement.
Bring your divisional colleagues (and even your School Head) and come out at the end with clear parameters for successful recruitment and retention of students, enhance student performance, enthusiasm and satisfaction, and increased capacity for the second decade of this century.
