Topic: Developing Faculty as Academic Leaders
CSU East Bay used the directive to convert from a quarter to a semester-based campus to genuinely transform curriculum and incorporate more high impact practices. The Office of Semester Conversion created a cross-disciplinary faculty committee to develop a program design and assessment guide, design a course template to help align curriculum, and create workshops to support faculty’s investment into campus transformation.
The Assessment Leadership Building project at University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa borrowed best practices in professional development and used faculty self-determination, adult learning, and learning community theory and practices. The project aims to train faculty as the change agent to initiate, refine, and advance program learning assessment in their programs. This workshop will describe this professional development project and its impact and provide the training model and materials for participants to adapt at their own institutions.
