The goal of the monthly Faculty Meeting is to discuss the Training Team’s goals, strategy, and how best Faculty Members can utilize their expertise within the group.

  • Proposal: Merging Lesson Plans, Video Tutorials, and Slides
    • Do we have a consensus on how to move forward with this?
    • Explore how this relates to Rethinking Lesson Plan Creation Process – Let’s discuss both of these threads to come to a consensus on a way to move forward. Discussion Frame:
      • Existing Lesson Plan Goals (as Sarah sees them)
        • To make the process bite-sized so people can contribute what they can with the time that they have.
          • Are we succeeding in this endeavor? If so, why? If not, what could we change?
        • To entrench the process in instructional design best practices so that the quality is A++ from start to finish (with an eye on eventual certifications)
          • How can we make this process more accessible to lower the bar of entry for quality contributions?
        • To be able to track what people are doing so everything is public, we can market it, and we can celebrate!
    • What’s working to make the bar entry lower in other places? What can we change
      • Online Workshops
      • Video Tutorials
      • Note Taking
      • Review Process
      • Faculty Program
    • How can we make contribution easier for beginners, and make onboarding newcomers smoother?
  • Enabling and empowering new contributors to put on Online Workshops
    • How can we make space to allow new contributors to be vulnerable and make mistakes?
    • How can we do better to check our biases to ensure we relay constructive feedback for new contributors to action?
