Highly effective department chairs balance their roles as colleague and leader to develop and sustain a clear vision of the change necessary to meet departmental and institutional challenges and achieve programmatic goals. Building on the fundamental lessons learned by the physics community in the work leading to the landmark Strategic Programs for Innovations in Undergraduate Physics (SPIN-UP) and Preparing Physics Students for 21st Century Careers (Phys21) reports, and culminating in the soon-to-be-released Effective Practices for Physics Programs (EP3) Guide, this webinar discusses the “7 Habits of Highly Effective STEM Department Chairs” developed in the bi-annual Physics Department Chairs Workshop and the Physics and Astronomy New Faculty Workshop series run jointly by the American Association for Physics Teachers (AAPT) and the American Physical Society (APS).
This webinar is designed for STEM department chairs, program leaders, and other faculty interested in how to create and sustain systemic change in their departments and institutions.
As a result of this webinar, participants will:
- Learn and reflect on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Department Chairs
- Discuss how to apply the 7 Habits to a challenge or goal your department faces
