Evaluation of effective and inclusive teaching: How can teaching and learning center professionals be involved in change?
Monday, August 30, 2021 at 1:00pm PT | 2:00m MT | 3:00 pm CT | 4:00pm ET
Presenters: Susan Elrod, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, ASCN Working Group 3 (Change Leaders), Working Group 5 (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Social Justice), and Working Group 6 (Aligning Incentives with Systemic Change)
Teaching and learning centers and professionals may not be involved in actual evaluation of teaching, but they are often a part of the campus conversation about teaching evaluation. This webinar is geared to professionals in these positions who want to know how they can be an agent of change for more meaningful, inclusive, and effective evaluation of teaching -- beyond traditional student course evaluations -- which has greater potential to enhance teaching excellence at their campus.
Tuesday, May 11, 2021 at 12:00pm PT / 1:00pm MT / 2:00pmCT / 3:00pm ET
Panelists: Dr. Shirley Malcom, Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) STEMM Equity Achievement (SEA) Change; Dr. Stanley Lo, Society for the Advancement of Biology Education Research (SABER); Dr. Elizabeth Holcombe, Pullias Center for Higher Education, University of Southern California; and Dr. Tabbye Chavous, National Center for Institutional Diversity (NCID), University of Michigan
ASCN and SEISMIC are co-hosting a panel on "Building Structural Equity: National Networks' Role in Promoting Justice." The purpose of this panel is to provide an opportunity for SEISMIC and ASCN members, particularly those in leadership roles, to learn from other national networks about how organizations themselves can promote justice. Panelists will be discussing, "What is the role of national organizations like ours in promoting equity and justice in higher education?"

In many ways, communities of higher education reflect the communities in which they are situated. Equity and racial justice initiatives must take into consideration the wide range of ideology, knowledge, and experience of educators to be successful. Practically, this means offering multiple, contextualized, differentiated opportunities of engagement that meet educators where they are. The presenters will share their journey of utilizing Bensimon's framework of First Generation Equity Practitioners to engage the whole campus community. There will be facilitated discussion on strategies to use on your own campus, as well as how ASCN can support this work.
Tuesday, March 30, 2021 at 9:00 am PT | 10:00 am MT | 11:00 am CT | 12:00 pm ET (Duration - 90 minutes)

Join us for a conversation about the Departmental Action Team (DAT) Model, which utilizes facilitated teams to promote positive and sustained change in higher education. The presenters have co-facilitated 10+ DATs and are investigating the short and long-term impacts of the DAT model.
In this webinar, they will introduce the DAT model and its guiding principles for change. Participants will leave the webinar with a foundational understanding of the DAT model, how to apply the DAT model to new or ongoing change initiatives, and types of changes DATs can catalyze. Participants will discuss ideas about how the DAT model may work with national-scale change initiatives. Throughout the webinar, the presenters will point participants to resources that have been developed to support change, including their book Facilitating Change in Higher Education: The Departmental Action Team Model and a free toolkit of materials available at dat-project.org.
