Best Practices Tools
The Butler Center is creating Best Practices Tools that could be useful for faculty and possibly also inform policies/procedures. A Tool can be created based on a need. Faculty members may be invited to create a best practices tool or can propose creation of a best practices tool. There is no specific or set frequency for announcing Tools.
BEST PRACTICES TOOL #1
Documenting the Impact of COVID-19 on Faculty (tenure track/tenured)

The COVID-19 pandemic along with the protests for racial justice has affected people’s daily lives in profound ways. These effects will continue to have long term impacts within academia. It is therefore essential to maintain a record, that is document the impacts faculty are experiencing in the three main areas of Discovery, Teaching & Learning, and Engagement. This document is intended as a guide for all tenure track/tenured faculty. It is not policy. A revised version of this Tool will be created for nontenure track faculty. Please note that annual evaluation and support for faculty will be addressed in a separate Tool. Tool #1 is here.
BEST PRACTICES TOOL #2

Following the Best Practices Tools #1, and #3 which focus on documenting the impacts of COVID-19 on faculty in the three main areas of Discovery, Teaching & Learning, and Engagement, Tool #2 provides some best practices in three main areas - faculty support, annual review, and recognition. The Tool is about what Purdue can do in the three areas of support, assessment, and recognition. Tool #2 is here.
BEST PRACTICES TOOL #3
Documenting the Impact of COVID-19 on Faculty (clinical)

Following the Best Practices Tool #1 intended for tenure track/tenured faculty, Tool #2 focuses on clinical faculty. The best practices are an indicative list; and not an exhaustive list. It is a guide, not policy. Tool #3 is here.
