Scholarship. A requirement for tenure or for promotion to any rank is evidence of scholarly activity and achievement, or creative work in the performing and fine arts, and recognition of one's work by academic peers. Evidence of scholarship or its equivalent includes:
Scholarship. The standard of scholarship requires a working commitment to inquiry and research and to creative achievement. The University obligation for the generation of new knowledge and practices imposes a responsibility for creativity, whether in inquiry and investigation, writing, design and production, or in the performing and fine arts. In the best of scholars and the best of teachers, creative inquiry is joined with effective classroom teaching.
Scholarship. Faculty Members are entitled and expected to engage in scholarship (as defined in Article 1.1(n)), to show scholarly integrity therein, and to disseminate the results of their scholarship or exhibit the results of their creative work. It is the responsibility of the Employer to provide reasonable resources for the conduct of scholarly activity and its dissemination.
Scholarship. Significant research, scholarship and/or creative/artistic activities may require more concentrated effort to complete than a faculty member’s normal workload would allow, such as meeting a grant deadline, publication or other dissemination opportunity, dissertation deadline, etc. Assigning additional ELU for scholarly activities is not automatic, but shall be determined by the Director in consultation with the Provost (or designee). Any additional ELU awarded shall be proportional to the anticipated additional effort required (equivalent to approximately 35 hours for the term). A faculty member receiving additional ELU loading under this provision will report on the outcome(s) of work performed for the additional loading as part of the Faculty Professional Annual Report (FPAR).
Scholarship. The University also recognizes the need to support faculty scholarship activities and may substitute scholarship duties for a portion of a full-time annual or full-time quarterly faculty teaching assignment. Such scholarship substitutions will be made by the University to individual faculty assignments for the purposes of strengthening selected academic programs or faculty development. This substitution shall be granted to individuals only. Annually, the University shall offer 18 course releases (3-4 unit courses) for engagement in scholarship, only. Faculty will apply to the Faculty Development Committee detailing the scholarly activity and expected progress to arise from the requested reassignment time. Faculty will also provide copies of their applications to the chair of their academic division and the dean of their college. The Faculty Development Committee shall review the applications and award course reassignments based on criteria developed jointly by a four person committee comprised of the two college deans and two representatives from the union collective bargaining team. A report on the outcome(s) of work performed during the release is to be submitted to the dean within three months of the affected term of release. No departments shall be granted a department wide reduction in load. Division Chairs will assign appropriate teaching and scholarship activity assignments when they submit the Schedule of Classes to the College Dean for approval.
Scholarship. The most effective teaching involves engaging students fully in the learning process both inside and outside the classroom. Such engagement requires that faculty themselves maintain programs of scholarly and creative activity that will keep them current in their fields. To this end, and grounded in the intellectual premise that faculty are knowledge creators, each faculty member shall be engaged in scholarly activity. Wingate University recognizes multiple types of scholarship conducted by individuals, with colleagues, and/or with students in the following categories: DiscoveryThe scholarship of discovery includes original research that advances knowledge. Teaching and LearningThe scholarship of teaching and learning includes the systematic study of teaching and learning processes to achieve optimal learning for application and evaluation by others. IntegrationThe scholarship of integration involves synthesis of information across disciplines, across topics within a discipline, or across time. Application (or Engagement)The scholarship of application (or engagement) involves the rigor and application of disciplinary expertise that aids society and professions in addressing problems with results that can be shared with and/or evaluated by peers. Creative ActivityThe scholarship of creative activity refers to those pursuits that lead to the production of works of art, whether visual, written, dramatic, or musical.
Scholarship. The institution recognizes the value of continuous involvement in scholarly activity to effective instruction in the faculty member’s discipline. Each faculty member shall engage in scholarship activity consistent with the evaluation criteria in Article 8.
Scholarship. Scholarship involves the investigation of the significance and meaning of knowledge, undertaken through critical analysis and interpretation. Scholarship may be applied, where knowledge is applied to real world problems to gain an understanding of how the knowledge can be used to help individuals and institutions resolve such problems. Scholarship may also be that of discovery, where new knowledge is developed through rigorous and disciplined investigative efforts. Scholarship may also be considered that of original creative work. Scholarship typically includes both a process of peer review and some form of dissemination (or “publication”) of the work as determined by the relevant academic discipline. The following are possible ways in which scholarship can be pursued and included as part of the annual workload agreement: presentations made at practitioner conferences and events; creative works (art, dance, music, showings, works and so on); presentations made at scholarly conferences, with or without proceedings publication; publication of a refereed article, case, monograph, book chapter or book; publication of textbook supplements or other course materials; award of a research grant or fellowship; creation of licensed computer software; reviews of books, software, etc. in a refereed scholarly journal; awards from the department, college, university or professional association for scholarly activity; and others. Many fields demonstrate "publication" through creative production rather than through traditional written documents." For example "appropriate kinds of scholarship/creative activity" may include: productions, juried exhibitions, distribution, management (of media stations or labs), internet publication, and multi-media performance as well as film, video and digital media productions. Additionally, the department may determine that a grant proposal (and the successful attainment of a grant) may be either scholarship or service depending upon its assessment of the purpose and quality of the grant.
