Faculty Leading Change Institutes Draw National Engagement

Teams of faculty–full-time and adjunct –join colleagues at two Institutes designed to engage faculty in student success.

There was a lot of engagement from teams from the Achieving the Dream Leader Colleges selected to participate in the Engaging Adjunct Faculty in the Student Success Movement initiative. They began their new work together on July 30, at Evergreen State College, in Olympia, WA, at a focused, one-day session. Selected colleges included Harper College (IL), Community College of Baltimore County (MD), Patrick Henry Community College (VA), Delta College (MI), Community College of Philadelphia (PA) and Renton Technical College (WA).

They then joined teams from 30 community colleges and four-year institutions to develop evidence-based action plans to improve instructional practices, student engagement, and student learning at their campuses at the Teaching and Learning National Institute (TLNI), co-sponsored by Achieving the Dream and partners The National Survey of Student Engagement, National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment, The Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges, and Evergreen State College.

The work generated interest from the media as well as from participants. For more, https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2016/08/05/achieving-dream-looks-increase-adjunct-faculty-engagement  and https://storify.com/AchievetheDream/atd-s-national-teaching-learning-institute.
