Chair Feedback & Development Program
The IDEA Feedback System for Chairs is the only nationally available tool for chairs that provides feedback, analysis, and a customized plan for professional development based on priorities determined by the chair. It addresses two fundamental questions:
     –How effective am I perceived to be?
     –What might I do to improve? 

The Chair Feedback and Development Program connects individual feedback with a year of guided online professional development to help chairs and department heads succeed. More.
