Peer review, when done well, has been seen to reinvigorate teaching, provide detailed appraisal, and enrich evidence on which decisions about compensation and promotion are made. In this concise, yet comprehensive book, Nancy Van Note Chism offers a framework for the use of peer review; lists the tasks involved in setting up a peer-review program; and provides guidelines, protocols, checklists, and reproducible rating forms for reviewing course materials, classroom performance and non-course teaching activities, such as overall departmental teaching efforts and teaching portfolios. She addresses institution-level issues: policies about peer review; responsibilities of administrators, reviewers, and reviewees; and the components of an effective peer-review system. The book is offered in the hope that providing examples and forms will not reduce the important work of peer review to mere forms or rigid procedures, but will empower faculty to articulate standards, perform their reviews systematically, and realize that engaging in peer reviews can be an approachable, helpful task. Peer reviews are rooted in the foundational approach of teaching as communal work that opens dialogue, probes assumptions, encourages sharing, and creates a culture that supports and sustains good teaching.

Bestsellerautor John P. Kotter hat in den letzten 35 Jahren beobachtet, was Menschen tun, damit ihre Unternehmen gut funktionieren. Auf diesen Erkenntnissen basiert sein neues Buch. Hier spricht Kotter von der Dringlichkeit, permanent nach wichtigen Belangen im Unternehmen Ausschau zu halten und im Bedarfsfall so schnell wie möglich zu handeln, um ein Unternehmen wandlungsfähig und damit erfolgreich zu machen. Menschen, die ein Gespür für diese Dringlichkeit besitzen, suchen automatisch immer nach Risiken, die das Unternehmen gefährden sowie nach Möglichkeiten zur Verbesserung. Kotter erklärt, wodurch sich echte Dringlichkeit auszeichnet, weshalb sie ein unschätzbar wertvolles Gut ist und wie Manager das Gefühl für Dringlichkeit in ihrem Umfeld wecken, stärken und bewahren können. Seine Ausführungen erläutert Kotter an zahlreichen Beispielen aus der ganzen Welt.
