display_description An annual publication of the Professional and Organizational Development Network in Higher Education (POD), To Improve the Academy offers a resource for improvement in higher education to faculty and instructional development staff, department chairs, faculty, deans, student services staff, chief academic officers, and educational consultants. This year's issue is reflective of a trend that is occurring across higher education: elements of change throughout an institution. The three sections of this volume reflect these elements by the level and context at which they occur within an institution of higher education: the macro level, the unit level, and the classroom level. Much thought went into the focus of this year's volume, and the chapters best illuminate theory and practice addressing faculty development in each of these contexts.--Preface.
