During faculty campus interview, is it possible for applicants to check their notes from papers or laptops, or should everything be memorized? In other words, are faculty interviews open book or closed book? Does it make a difference for the search committee if applicants want to check their notes? Having the ability to check personal notes would be useful to list all relevant points in order, unless this is not allowed or can affect applicants. In addition, I found that some suggests to prepare notes for phone interviews, however, can such notes be used in on-campus interview?
Examples of using notes while interview:
- List future research plans - 10-15 points
- List names of collaborators - 10-15 names
- Style of teaching - 10-15 points
- Names and research area of the department faculty members - 15-20
