Where are the essays on annual faculty retreats?
Where is the CHE/IHE-style higher education literature on annual faculty retreats? I would have thought that they would have been treated in ProfHacker or one of the IHE blogs. I thought there would at least be snarky blog posts. I wonder if the higher ed. research community has actually studied them via-a-vis manifest and latent functions, aspirations and outcomes? (No time to dig deeply on this, of course.)
Today is my department’s day-long faculty retreat staged at a secret location just outside of town.
