Welcome to the February edition of Faculty Forecast designed to promote upcoming events and timely resources from Faculty Career Development at The Wallace Center. This month, we share some information related to scholarship, tenure review, and spring training! We continue to invite your feedback on this new venture.
February 24 — 21st Century Scholarship Unlocked: Your Rights as an author
Are you working on a research or scholarly publication and want to know more about author's rights? Distinguished speaker Peter Hirtle will join us on February 24, 1–2pm, for a presentation on the topic followed by a reception.
February 28 — Are you curious about the mid-tenure review process?
Join your colleagues at the 6th Annual Mid-Tenure Review panel discussion on February 28, 2–3:30pm, where you can ask questions about requirements for mid-tenure review and learn about this important process from faculty who have served on tenure committees or may have been recently tenured.

FREE RESOURCES FOR FACULTY
This month, we highlight INSIDE HIGHER ED (IHE), a free newsletter offering news and opinions, career management tools, webinars and more. Sign up options are on the IHE website. With spring training for the 2017 baseball season right around the corner, we thought this article from IHE was appropriate for this month’s share: “Put Me In Coach,” offering nine lessons those who work in higher education can learn from baseball.
