Wednesday, January 22, Marriott Marquis, Washington, D.C.
During this full day institute, participants will learn about the symposium model and how it has been used to increase faculty engagement in change initiatives; discover ways to connect the symposium model to campus priorities; plan strategically to broaden involvement and prepare participants to succeed in the work, given various campus contexts and culture; and leave with a draft symposium plan to take back to their campuses.
This institute is relevant to higher education administrators, CTL directors, faculty, and other campus leaders who are looking for ways to invite faculty to lead in times of change.
There will be short presentations throughout the session, but the majority of workshop time will be devoted to planning activities, facilitated in small groups by our team members. We will provide example agendas, symposia invitations, ideas for logistical planning, and symposium prompts, as well as a planning guidebook with individual activities for participants to complete as they create their draft symposium plan.
