Higher education is facing significant and fundamental challenges that don’t have clear or easy answers, including:
There are no silver bullets, nor one-size-fits-all solutions for these challenges. What works for one institution will likely not work for another. The key is collaboration. Convening different groups is not without risk, but it is the best way to create an informed and shared picture of the future, and it can engender the necessary trust to move forward. This program will equip you with the tools, techniques, and approaches to do just that.
Due to the highly experiential and interactive nature of this program, attendance is limited to 30 people. You will engage in different simulations and discussions, and receive personalized attention to ensure you leave with a tangible plan to move your change efforts forward.
This program has been specially designed for middle to senior leaders who are managing large-scale change efforts (i.e. revamping a core curriculum; creating a new strategic plan or direction for an institution; creating a comprehensive approach to student success and completion, etc.). Internal staff focused on organizational development will also benefit.
We want you to be satisfied with your Academic Impressions learning experience. If the program you purchased fails to meet your expectations, please contact us within 30 days and let us know. We’ll credit the full amount you paid toward another AI program that may better fit your needs.
Learning Outcome:After participating in this conference, you will be able to use the tactics you learn to engage stakeholders across institutional silos.
Conceptual Framework: 3 Questions
We’ll introduce you to the three questions people ask themselves as they decide whether or not to invest themselves in a group. These also serve as a lens for creating the conditions of participation and commitment.
Collaborative Meeting Design Basics: The Flow Model
We’ll introduce the underlying structure of a good, collaborative/participatory meeting. We’ll use the work we’ve done together to illustrate the Flow Model (Beginning, Middle and Culmination), and show how it connects to the other frameworks.
Homework: Scan the design book and see what catches your attention or piques your interest. Be prepared to discuss this tomorrow.
