Follow the conversation at the AASCU Winter Meeting.
From → Undergraduate Education
Sitting in the Red Ballon Steering Committee meeting, I am reminded of how fortunate I am to work with IPFWs faculty in general, and on a specific level, our Senate leadership. Thanks to all of you.
Faculty, faculty, faculty. Sitting here in the Red Balloon Steering Committee Meeting, and the consistent message is faculty leadership in campus-wide systemic change. I am so delighted that so many of IPFWs faculty have stepped up to participate in our re-imagining project…but we need more involvement! As we move forward in looking at core faculty issues such as P&T, student course evaluations, assessment and more…your voices, your intellect, and your creativity, will be crucial to IPFWs future.
With thanks in advance!
I remain thoroughly convinced that IPFW is well-placed to lead as a comprehensive masters institution. It is abundantly clear that the higher Ed landscape is changing rapidly. We must choose whether to allow it to change us, or whether we become and agent of such change, at leastin part on our own terms. I prefer the latter.
Refocusing Student Success: student Learning Progress Model at UA Anchorage
They are a merged masters comprehensive and a community college. They are an access institution, about IPFWs age. They serve an unbelievably diverse area…Anchorage as well as very rural villages. They serve an area as lane as the state of Michigan.
They track students over 10 years. Students enrolled as first time full time, transfers, swirlers, etc. Based on a unit called “successful learning rate,” where degree completion is not the only metric…and transfer is not necessarily a failure.
Assess learning progress, not just degree granting.
We should never forget the public purpose of our institutions, and hat we are a vehicle for positive social change.
