The monthly column that I write for University Affairs is called Ask Dr. Editor. Please feel free to send me a question!
Three of my favourite books on learning:
- Wiggins & McTighe, Understanding by Design
- James Lang, Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Teaching
- Carl Wieman, Improving How Universities Teach Science
I’ve written about P&T dossiers in my column, notably in the pieces:
- “How to write a statement of teaching philosophy that shines”
- “How to write persuasively in promotion and tenure documents”
Andrew Rumbach shares his own dossier and letters on his “my tenure dossier” webpage.
Research that shows that diversity and inclusion are good for research includes:
Hong, L., & Page, S. E. (2004). Groups of diverse problem solvers can outperform groups of high-ability problem solvers. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 101(46), 16385-16389. https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.0403723101

My favourite tip to make writing more dense and efficient: cut “is.”
