NTID Network Based Mentoring Session for Chairs

When: Thursday, September 20, 2018, 2:00 - 3:30 PM

Where: CSD-2102

Intended Audience: NTID Department Chairs 

Faculty mentoring can offer a vital contribution to a successful academic career, particularly for women, faculty of color, and for those with hearing differences. The most common form of mentoring has been a "traditional model," which is defined by a one-on-one relationship between an experienced faculty member who guides the career development of an early career faculty member. Formal mentoring programs have been largely designed to fit this traditional definition. Recent research, however, has indicated the emergence of new, more flexible approaches to mentoring in which faculty build a network of multiple "mentoring partners" who can address a variety of career competencies. 

In this interactive session, offered by AdvanceRIT and NTID, participants will identify common roadblocks to success for faculty across the career trajectory; recognize both traditional and emerging models of mentoring; explore how to design and implement a networked mentoring program; share strategies to effectively address communication challenges while networking in non-deaf environments; and discuss outcomes, best practices, and resources on network-based mentoring for use by faculty and administrators. Facilitators are Margaret Bailey and Carol Marchetti from the AdvanceRIT Leadership team, Kathryn Schmitz, Sr. Associate Dean for Academic Administration, Todd Pagano, Associate Dean for Teaching and Scholarship Excellence. 

Interpreting services and light refreshments will be provided.

On behalf of Provost Granberg, I am pleased to invite you to attend a workshop to learn more about RIT's tenure and promotion policies and process and your role as a tenure/promotion committee member. This workshop will review RIT's tenure and promotion policies (E05.0 and E06.0) and discuss how to apply them to candidate dossiers. We will also discuss the roles and responsibilities of committee chairs and members and review best practices, common questions, and issues that may arise during your deliberations. We will also discuss unconscious bias and how it might creep into the process and what you can to do mitigate it. There will be ample time for questions and answers from the participants. We will also provide a continental breakfast. 

RSVP for this workshop here, and if you have any questions, please contact Sue Provenzano at stp1031@rit.edu or (585)475-5572.

NTID Network Based Mentoring

When: Wednesday, October 10, 2018, 2:00-4:00 PM

Where: CSD-1300/1310

Intended Audience: Assistant, Associate, & Full Professors in NTID

This workshop offered by AdvanceRIT and NTID explores the faculty experience and the role of mentoring in contributing to academic career advancement and success. Recent literature and practice now offer new, more flexible approaches to mentoring in which faculty build a network of "multiple mentors" who can address a variety of career competencies.

In this interactive session, you will identify your professional goals, strengths, and skills that you want to develop; explore mentoring as a medium for helping you meet those goals; "map" your own mentoring networks - what they are and could be, drawing on a range of examples from NTID faculty colleagues; share strategies on effectively addressing communication challenges while networking in non-deaf environments' and discuss best practices for seeking, developing, and cultivating a network of mentors. All NTID tenured and pre-tenured faculty members are encouraged to attend this interactive workshop. Facilitators are Margaret Bailey and Carol Marchetti from the AdvanceRIT Leadership team, Kathryn Schmitz, Sr. Associate Dean for Academic Administration, Todd Pagano, Associate Dean for Teaching and Scholarship Excellence. 

Interpreting services and light refreshments will be provided.
