Contingent Faculty Mentoring for Democracy [canceled]
Program arranged by the forum HEP Part-Time and Contingent Faculty Issues. Presiding: Maria Maisto, New Faculty Majority
Speakers: Lee Skallerup Bessette, Univ. of Kentucky; Robin J. Sowards, Duquesne Univ.
Panelists explore how to promote democratic principles and practices in the mentoring process. How can contingent faculty members resist exploitative and disrespectful mentoring projects? How can all faculty and staff members develop, and instill in their mentee colleagues and students, an understanding of pedagogy and professional development that includes a commitment to advocacy for the profession?
