Discovery with Delivery Tiger Team Co-chairs: Lynn Bryan, Helen Patrick Members: Nadine Dolby, Jillian Gates, Jennifer Jeffries, Nancy Pelaez, Sydney Zentall
Tiger Team’s Task • Align the COE’s Discovery goal(s) with Purdue University’s Discovery goal. • Recommend strategies and actions for the COE to achieve its (& the University’s) Discovery goals(s).
Goal #1: Create a College-wide system in which all faculty members are research-focused • Strategies – Develop a workload policy in which all faculty members are identified as research faculty. – Align promotion & tenure policies and procedures to reflect research orientation of all faculty. – Align merit policies & procedures to reflect research orientation of all faculty. • Action steps – Provide increased college & departmental support for discovery. – Hire additional clinical faculty so faculty teaching loads are reduced to 3 courses , per year, & no faculty member teaches more than 1 undergraduate course per year. – Hire additional mid-career Associate & Full professors with proven research records. – Departmental and college review of P&T & merit procedures.
Goal #2: Increase COE national & international reputation, so national ranking is consistent with benchmark universities • Strategies – Increase infrastructure support for faculty research. – Increase incentives and recognition for faculty. – Increase quality of accepted graduate applicants& have funding availablefor graduate students. • Action Steps – – – – Establish an Office of Educational Research, under the Associate Dean for Research Hire a full-time grant writer, fund professional editing for proposals. Hire a grant administrator. Provide increased support for graduate students. Establish a system of incentives & rewards for faculty demonstrating excellence in research. College-wide review of quality (e. g. , GREs, grades) of incoming accepted graduate students. Increase start-up funding to equal that provided by benchmark institutions. Provide research semesters for faculty (not same as sabbatical).
Goal #3: Create a culture that nurtures research excellence & opportunities for increased interdisciplinary research • Strategies – Reduce teaching loads. – Reduce time spent on administrative tasks & in meetings. – Increase time spent by faculty on internal conversations, presentations, etc. about research. • Action steps – Review departmental & college meeting & retreat agenda eliminate ; announcements, updates-- items that can be distributed via e-mail. – Institute regular presentations of research& conversations about research in departmental & college meetings. – Hire additional staff to work on necessary reviews (e. g. , SPA). – Create monthly research off-campus lunches for small groups. – Invite faculty from other colleges at Purdue and from other universities to present research at weekly research seminars to foster collaboration.
Launching Tomorrow’s Leaders Tiger Team: Teresa Doughty & Tim Newby, Co-Chairs Lynette Flagge, Amanda Guieb, Dorothy Hill, Carole Pistole, George Rogers
Goal 1: Recruit “high caliber” students ¡ Increase admission requirements for all incoming students. ¡Undergraduate: Beginning in 2012, require each incoming first year student to have successfully completed the equivalent of the Indiana Core 40 with Academic Honors high school diploma; ¡Masters: Increase minimum GRE scores required for admission into masters programs ¡Ph. D. : Increase minimum GRE scores required for admission to doctoral programs, require interviews for admission, require the inclusion of writing samples in application materials ¡ Emphasize the STEM areas as a signature for the COE ¡ Create a more formal honors program to add challenge for advanced undergraduate students ¡ Collaborate with P-12 schools in enhancing “teacher cadet” programs ¡ Increase graduate student recruitment efforts at state and national conferences ¡ Increase masters program enrollment through the recruitment of high caliber local teachers
Goal 2: Increase student retention ¡ Proactive monitoring and counseling of all students during first 2 years within COE, counsel as needed to help retain those that struggle ¡ Incorporate cohort groups within early class experience ¡ Establish learning communities ¡ Greater use of service learning projects that involve cohort teams who work together ¡ Conduct annual masters and doctoral level student evaluations in order to monitor and provide regular feedback to students regarding their progress in the program of study.
Goal 3: Increase the quality of the overall student learning experience STRATEGIES FOR UNDERGRADUATES : ¡ Increased levels of STEM learning experiences ¡ Increased levels of service learning (e. g. , required EPICS-type service learning participation) ¡ Greater levels of in-school experiences (TIP) ¡ More global experiences involving colleagues from other countries and cultures (e. g. , required study abroad experiences) ¡ Increased caliber of the COE teacher education instructors (e. g. , more with inclass teaching experience, enhanced English skills) ¡ Faculty exchange programs in order to diversify the classroom experience ¡ More learning experiences that require team efforts – where team members are not part of the Purdue culture ¡ More experiences where leadership skills are needed (e. g. , team/project managers for developing learning materials) ¡ Development of a mentor program where in-service teachers come to campus, attend classes with their mentees, and work with the mentees in their own class school settings. ¡ Match cross course content to alleviate content overlap or include missing elements ¡ Create a formal honors program for a small cohort group of incoming students each year
Goal 4 : Increase learning experience quality cont. Strategies for Master s students: ¡ Design online (elementary, special ed, secondary) certification and Masters programs that focus on in-service teachers – in particular focus on programs with a STEM emphasis ¡ Create cohort groups for all online programs Strategies for Ph. D. students: ¡ Increased required levels of research mentorship and production (publications and presentations) ¡ Increase required levels of entrance requirements ¡ Increase level of research assistantship money available ¡ Require all Ph. D students to complete research mentor/internships ¡ Create a solid, required set of foundational research courses for all graduate students
ENGAGEMENT: MEETING GLOBAL CHALLENGES Jean Peterson & John Staver, co-chairs Linda Austin, Stephen David, Ed Eiler, Jo. Ann Phillion, Bill Walker
Engagement COE Conceptualization. . . collaborative work. . . by mutually committed partners. . . to address issues of common interest. . simultaneously serves the needs of COE partners and invigorates the research, teaching, and service missions of the College. Tiger Team focus: broadening the definition of “community, ” reexamining the PDS component, emphasizing greater mutuality in partnerships, considering ways to incorporate the concept of “globalization” into a vision for engagement.
Goal 1 Enhance perceptions of Purdue engagement with P-12 partners. Prioritize mutuality and bi-directionality when developing engagement activities. Increase number and quality of engagement programs. Recognize and respect expertise in engagement partners , including in regard to international projects. Offer more professional-development opportunities for area educators. Continue to provide transition-to-teachin g opportunities. Replicate existing “embedded” projects.
Goal 2 Promote inclusivity and diversity. Dedicate research funding for non-statistical studies exploring and analyzing the experience of faculty and student international engagement. Involve teaching assistants in study-abroad experiences. Encourage research components in study-abroad experiences. Market the Global Studies minor and/or create a graduate-level certificate program related to international activity. Move beyond “counting” when examining international involvements. Incorporate qualitative methods into evaluation of engagement activity.
Goal 3 Develop educational leaders. Continue to encourage development of international distance-learning opportunities. Model the development of leadership in engagement. Develop venues for exchanging ideas , policies, and positions with outside entities. Encourage and reward scholarship related to international engagement.
Goal 4 Develop engagement models. Develop models for integrating research, teaching, and service across disciplines. Develop a promotion/tenure model related to engagement. Encourage scholarship focusing on models of engagement. Initiate engagement conferences as venues for sharing models. Market COE expertise related to evaluation of education entities and their programs. Be a model of engagement. Establish a centralized system for managing engagement data.
