Panel Session: Conversation About Being Promoted to Full Professor
Lead with Questions (all Purdue University): Jennifer Bay, Associate Professor, English; Ximena Bernal, Associate Professor, Biological Sciences; Sandra Sydnor, Associate Professor, School of Hospitality and Tourism Management.

Panelists (all Purdue University): Dulcy Abraham, Professor, School of Civil Engineering; Stacey Connaughton, Professor, Brian Lamb School of Communication; Mark French, Professor, School of Engineering Technology; Eckhard Groll, Professor & Head, Mechanical Engineering; Linda Mason, Dean, Graduate School and Professor, Entomology; Haley F. Oliver, Professor, Food Science; Melissa Remis, Professor & Head, Anthropology; Preeti Sivasankar, Professor and Head, Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences; Alan Zillich, Professor & Head, Pharmacy Practice.

This panel session is based on the feedback from last year’s conference attendees (Purdue only). The main goals of this session are to gain insights into the promotion process from both, those who have experience with being promoted recently and not so recently, as well as those who are/have been involved in the review process. The session therefore includes: (a) recently promoted fulls, (b) advanced fulls, (c) heads and a dean. The 2-hour panel session will comprise two parts. In the first part, three Purdue associate professors from across colleges will pose a few main questions to the panelists. In the second part, the session will be open to Q&A/comments from all attendees. Please note that the conference is open to faculty members from outside Purdue for the first time this year.

NCFDD Workshop: Building a Publishing Pipeline: Concrete Strategies for Increasing Your Writing Productivity (recording will not be available)

Dr. Erin Furtak, Professor and Associate Dean of Faculty in the School of Education, University of Colorado at Boulder

The aim of the session is to help participants identify the challenges of working on multiple works at once (e.g., book manuscript, conference paper, research article, grant proposal). Dr. Furtak argues that there are many more categories and subcategories to be added to our project pipeline and presents an alternative concrete strategy for managing multiple projects: a multi-stage visual tracking system. Workshop participants are encouraged to start their own tracking system during the workshop and use it to determine where they need to focus their efforts. By recognizing the individual steps that take an idea from draft to finished manuscript, the facilitator helps participants to map their writing projects onto a visualized timeline.
