Event Videos
For those who were unable to attend the original events, WISE@OU has created videos of workshops and discussions.

  • In the Fall of 2014, WISE@OU supported the AAUP workshop focused on the tenure process.  This workshop helps junior faculty develop a better understanding of this process.  Faculty who have served on FRPC as well as the Provost participated in this panel discussion and gave tips for preparing dossiers.
  • Past years' tenure workshop videos can be found here and here.
  • In December 2014, WISE@OU hosted special guest speaker Dr. Deborah DeZure from Michigan State University.  Dr. DeZure is the Assistant Provost for Faculty and Organizational Development, and is a leader in research on faculty career development, mentoring, and leadership.  In this video, Dr. DeZure shares her tips for successfully surviving and thriving in mid-career.
