Met with Lynn, Gail, Jesse, Peg Connell, and Maggie Tymms.
Perkins/DAP-Funded Online Workshops: Peg reiterated the desire to collaborate Perkins and DAP grants with QEP goals of critical thinking. Peg stated that funds are available to help fund the creation of online workshops that incorporate accessibility standards. Lynn and Janice will meet later to outline specifics (i.e., length of workshops, materials, payment/PAR, etc.). Most likely, the notes taken at the two Critical Thinking Institutes will be converted, and possibly some workshops will be developed from this summer’s event. Janice will talk with Karen Hesting about the work she’s done in the past for Peg to help clarify the process and accessibility standards.
RLO Guidelines: The group reviewed the RLO Guidelines document. Feeback was positive overall. A few suggestions were given: Add an area for comments; Add places for Name, Date, RLO Title, RLO Location, and way to indicate whether this RLO was created in-house or located outside SPC. Jesse suggested that this may be able to be created with the WITS survey builder to facilitate data collection. Janice suggested there also be a printable version to make completion easier for faculty.
ePortfolio: Lynn has registered for the TLT Webinar on ePortfolios that she and Alan will attend for three consecutive Wednesdays 12-1 p.m. beginning 4/16. Lynn will call Alan to arrange a rendezvous viewing location to help facilitate discussion after each one-hour session.
