Do tenured faculty get to micromanage clinical professors and other non-tenured instructors with respect to the classroom?
Shouldn't clinical professors be allowed control of their own classrooms and operate with intellectual freedom (in general)? Let us just assume for the sake of simplicity that we are talking about a clinical professor who has done a good job in the classroom (good student evaluations, good DWF rate, hard working, dynamic, puts in a lot of effort, meets course description, etc.).
"Micromanage" includes things like forcing someone to adapt a communal exam format, removing the ability to emphasize/de-emphasize certain topics in the classroom, etc.
Also, do lecturers, adjuncts, and teaching post-docs (all with PhDs) get the same (or similar) set of rights? Let us assume the same set of circumstances as I listed above for clinical people. What would be the potential consequences of simply saying "No, I won't participate in being micromanaged." and fighting for your right to intellectual freedom?
