Faculty Ethics: Issues, Challenges, and Solutions (Professional Development Workshop)
Academy of Management (2006)
  • Susan R. Madsen, Utah Valley University
The Faculty Ethics event is a three-part workshop that will provide faculty, administrators, and doctoral students the forum to discuss current issues and challenges related to the ethical decision-making and behavior of faculty members within the higher educational arena. First, the facilitators will briefly outline some of the current issues, trends and supporting literature in this area (20 minutes). Areas of discussion may include work ethic, plagiarism, misrepresentation, authorship issues, grading, teaching effort, selection of service assignments, reporting contributions, evaluation, research standards/ethics, and such. Second, participants will be asked to help the list of narrow ethics issues to the three or four issues of greatest concern (10 minutes). Participants will then form interest roundtables around the issues identified for further discussion (30 minutes). Each roundtable group will be asked to outline their specific topic's issues and challenges as well as to discuss ideas focused on addressing and improving related policies, guidelines, awareness, management techniques, expectations, and more. In the last 30 minutes groups will be asked to report on their discussions and facilitate additional comments/discussion from all attendees. The session will conclude with a review of the major topics and suggestions for next steps for interested participants. An email list will be circulated for those interested in receiving the notes and ideas from the session and/or continuing the conversation online.
