8:30-10:00am    The Challenges of Building PFF Programs - (many sessions repeated at 10:30)

   Solon C      Engaging graduate and partner faculty to become involved & supportive of PFF
                   activities.
                   PFF programs work best when substantial proportions of the departmental graduate
                   faculty are involved in curricular planning and/or supportive by encouraging aspiring
                   faculty to participate. On partner campuses, faculty involvement and commitment
                   may be different. What kinds of efforts have been made – successful and less
                   successful – to increase the level of involvement and commitment to the program?
                    Victor Benassi, University of New Hampshire

   Solon F      Preparing faculty to be effective mentors and rewarding those who are.
                Doctoral students who aspire to the professoriate need new kinds of mentors. One of the
                   innovations of PFF is the conception of an additional kind of advisor to the research
                   advisor, that is, a teaching mentor at a partner institution. Are there materials to assist
                   mentors or students in selecting and working with mentors? Do you arrange for
                   mentoring to be considered in promotion and tenure procedures, or in merit salary
                   increases? Do you arrange for recognition/award activities? Do you publish names in
                   campus media or association publications?
                    Mel Cummings, Howard University

   Solon H      Documenting the “value-added” benefits of PFF to graduate students and giving
                   recognition for PFF achievements.
                   What are indicators of success for graduate students? What are you doing to collect
                   evidence of success? Do you create certificates, portfolios, or arrange for “PFF” to be
                   documented on transcripts? Do you include “PFF” activities in letters of reference for
                   graduates? Do you include PFF letter from national office in dossiers?

                    Did you secure support from sources outside your department such as center for
                    teaching excellence, arts and sciences dean, dean of the graduate school? Did you
                    secure an increase in your department’s budget to be devoted to support PFF? Were
                    you able to have PFF listed in your institution’s capital campaign?

   Republic      Stimulating the scholarship of teaching and learning in graduate education.
                     How are you helping PFF students understand that teaching can be something other
                     than a seat-of-the-pants operation ?What works well or poorly?

 Independence    PFF for service responsibilities.
                    Faculty members render service to their departments, institutions, and disciplines, i.e.,
                    they are campus and community citizens who actively participate in governing their
                    institutions. How are your PFF students learning about their service responsibilities?
                    How do they document this experience?
                     Scott Sernau, Indiana University
                     Will Hickos, Florida State University

                 TA or RA appointments?.
                    How does your program link TA training with PFF? How do you involved TA’s and
                    RA’s who carry heavy work loads? Do you require professional development
                    experiences, such as PFF, for students on fellowships?
                     Pat Andrews, Indiana University

   Suite 751     Effectively using on-campus resources, e.g., teaching centers, research foundation,
                 instructional technology center, for PFF goals.
                     The teaching center at one university houses a library on teaching resources. Another
                     schedules micro teaching opportunities. What resources have you used for PFF at your
                     teaching center? Can the institutional research office assist in evaluating the PFF
                     program? Is the career center providing assistance with preparing resumes or
                     conducting a job search?
                      Kecia Thomas, University of Georgia

   Suite 715     Meeting the challenges to partner faculty involvement.
                    One partner faculty member tells how she co-authored a journal article with a PFF
                    student and gave a presentation at a professional meeting. Some also attend
                    departmental faculty meetings together. They discuss reactions over regular lunches.
                    What stories can you tell about partner faculty mentor and PFF student activities? How
                    do you document these? How are contributions of partner faculty recognized and
                    rewarded?

                   How does your PFF program take advantage of cluster partners to create programs
                   that allow you to talk about the way white teachers have altered their materials in order
                   to teach more effectively to students of other racial and ethnic origins? How do you
                   create opportunities to learn about changes that would increase minority students’
                   interest in pursuing doctoral degrees? What advice regarding curriculum, selection of
                   materials, standards, and the role of the community in education has been most
                   helpful?

9:00-10:30am     The Doctoral Experience and Early Faculty Careers
Solon A-E-B-G       Speakers will highlight findings from two national studies -- one of doctoral students
                    and first- and second-year faculty about the job search process and the factors that are
                    especially important when deciding between multiple job offers, and one of
                    probationary faculty about navigating the tenure-track process where young scholars
                    voice their concerns about community, leading a balanced life, and achieving tenure.
                    Sorcinelli and Trower will also cover what the academy might do to improve academic
                    life currently and envision a bright future.
