This new reader on faculty and faculty issues presents the latest scholarship on the topic of the academic profession. The new selections focus both on longstanding debates on issues such as tenure and on relatively recent issues such as the use of distance technology. The new readings in this volume are written by researchers who have employed an exciting array of different approaches: There is a wealth of data behind their findings, patterns already are taking shape, and an almost universal consensus has developed across studies. All of them portend radical changes in the faculty career. Will other forces intervene to halt or delay these changes, or will the present era be one that will be highlighted in future histories of the faculty as a time of great change? The selections in this reader portray important trends that may help you anticipate the answers to these questions.
