We keep continuing working with the Faculty Center providing training to faculty. We are preparing a new Faculty Learning Community Mindfulness Online Learning. Some of our faculty are going to take the QLT training, and we keep reviewing courses (QLT). Some faculty wants to complete the core 24 to certified their classes.

Humboldt just launched a call out for our Spring Course Transformation Institute (CTI) focused on supporting disciplinary-based groups as they transform their identified courses to further a department or program level goal. Each disciplinary-based group will examine fundamental course structures while uncovering big ideas and essential questions, explicate the student-thinking goals, and develop an implementation plan to work on during Spring 2021. An emphasis is placed on developing learning experiences in online courses AND in highly flexible instructional contexts where students move between learning modalities within a course (face-to-face, online, blended, asynchronous/synchronous, etc.) to further institutional and program level goals; however, projects are not limited to this emphasis. QLT Self-reviews will be part of the foundational work.

We, at Stan State, will be offering an Online Course (Re)design Institute this January, for the first time. Our OAT is offering some workshops as well.
Mary Bennett
Fresno State: Moved to Panopto for streaming server so lots of training on the tool and Canvas integration, mini-modules in Canvas focused on tools, equity, assessment, pedagogy, etc. and faculty have the opportunity to receive a badge upon completion. QLT courses and 2 semester long institutes are offered. The new subcommittee for online and blended teaching are working on their policies and evaluation of courses that were backlogged due to COVID.
Beverly Bondad-Brown
Cal State LA: Each semester we run our Designing Online Courses (DOC) program. 22 faculty completed last spring. 26 faculty are finishing up this semester. Will run another cohort in Spring. Prepping to train and support Labster and GoReact. College of Education will pilot Ally. I am facilitating a new workshop called “Check for Understanding” on how to engage students in synchronous Zoom meetings. This term we got 5 faculty through QM’s PRC course so we have more peer reviewers on our campus who are eager to do QM peer reviews.
Kim Vincent-Layton - Humboldt
Addition to HSU - our QLT Peer Review team has been busy with peer reviews throughout the fall and will continue into the spring.
Catherine Cal Poly SLO
Cal Poly - continuing with our training programs, last year-long academy group, and starting in 2021 we are pushing to create a set of online course peer reviewers in every college so we can continue with internal QLT reviews. Launching Ally this year (forgot to mention!) as well as adapting the course modification forms to our new AS Resolution on Online Teaching & Learning. Hoping to have a lot of online courses moving forward!

At Cal Poly Pomona we have our Champions for Accessibility and Inclusivity (CHAI) in place and they have been providing workshops within their 8 colleges. Our ID team is continuing our work on a Fundamentals of Accessibility eCertificate which our CHAI faculty are helping us develop. We have started a Technology Tuesdays Series for faculty. We’ve launched our Remote Course Design experience as an online, asynchronous, self-enrollable course. Bb Ally is active in all of our courses this semester. We also launched a new version of our Quality Matters Blackboard template. Since 2008 we have had a program call Wall of COOL where we recognize and celebrate exemplar course design that effectively uses technology to enhance student learning and success, so we have just selected our (4) faculty for this upcoming year. Finally, we’re starting a new QM informal review with hope of another formal review in the near future.

@Megan so happy to hear you will be part of the Academy!
Mark Laumakis
yes, I have been wondering about a slowdown in demand for support from faculty as they see an end to this crisis via the roll-out of vaccines in 2021
Anne Soon Choi, CSUDH
CSUDH: So both the director and I are new to our FDC and we are slowly rebuilding QM on our campus. We had 10 faculty complete QM training this fall. We continue to focus on our summer training with semester long series of “Lunch and learn workshops.” With all the new tech tools, we have been working on FERPA and student privacy responsibilities for faculty. We have also been running college specific “best practices and tips.” We are spending the month hold drop-in sessions for faculty to lay out active learning strategies. We FINALLY acquired PADLET for campus! We are also rolling out BB ultra. We are also establishing our informal QM campus review team.

@mark——I had three faculty mention that this week….

I totally understand their thinking. The opportunity cost of investing in additional training to teach online is significant and may not ultimately be worth it, if we are gonna get instructors back into the classroom in the foreseeable future.

Donya and I need to leave for another meeting. We posted our CPP updates in the chat above.
