» Annual Faculty Activity Report
Your Annual Faculty Activity Report is due by Friday, January 17, 2014. If you have already completed an activity report as part of a review this fall, you do not need to complete another report unless you would like to amend your earlier report to include any additional activities for the remainder of the calendar year. There is no minimum or maximum length expected for your report, but please do try to direct us to what you think is most important by providing a succinct account of your year’s work.
You can submit your report electronically using the online version of the form or as a Word document (also located on the web) emailed as an attachment to Karen Zollman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have questions regarding this report, please consult with your Division Chair or call Karen Zollman at 527-5398.
With respect to teaching, you are encouraged to describe current challenges you are grappling with, including but not limited to those that have come to your attention as a result of the qualitative and/or quantitative results of student evaluations; changes that you have made in response to those challenges; your assessment of the results of those changes; and, finally, pedagogical strategies you are considering for future adoption. This does not mean that you are expected to change your teaching every year; indeed, reflection on the continued success of previous approaches to your teaching is entirely appropriate.
In completing this section of the report, please provide the following information:
With respect to scholarship, if you wish, you may report information in the form of a list of publications, conference papers, grant applications, performances, exhibits, etc. (Please note that for this purpose, the web as well as the Word version of the Annual Activity Report form include a link labeled Retrieve My Scholarship. This link will take you to your section of the Faculty Scholarship Guide; once there, you can copy and paste your citations into your Annual Activity Report.) In addition in this section, you are encouraged to indicate briefly how your professional activity during the past year fits within the larger trajectory of your scholarly career.
Report here items such as publications, performances, or exhibitions, indicating which are peer-reviewed; grants or honors; attendance at and participation in professional meetings; election to positions in professional organizations; consulting or counseling; progress toward a formal degree or other formal study; and any other work or activity which reflects your participation in professional affairs or the development of your professional interests and capacities. Give complete citations for all books, articles, papers, book reviews, columns, concerts, exhibits, public presentations, etc.
With respect to service, if you wish, you may choose to report information in the form of bullet points, although, here too, you are encouraged to reflect and comment on your service over the course of the past year, including specific contributions you made, whether in the form of committee service or less formally (e.g., by contributing to the creation of an inclusive learning environment at Whitman). In this section, report such things as appointment or election to College or Faculty offices and committees; participation in special programs, projects, and events, including lectures and other presentations or performances; membership in campus or community organizations; and any other contributions to the College or community.
In 50 ~ 100 words or less, please list below what you think are two of your most important accomplishments during the period covered by this activity report.
Please note any additional remarks or observations that you think should be included in this report.
