Haynes: Within a department there is often one or very few faculty interested in course or curriculum redesign. These individuals need support, and the Leadership initiative that TPSE has announced sounds like an excellent way to support these people and encourage contact between different institutions.Haynes: Having authentic conversations with faculty in other departmentsHow can we bring some of the teaching advantages using Zoom (lower threshhold for student questions, etc) and incorporate them into the in-person classroom?... Assessment and Integrity Questions (cuts across all)... Privacy/Proctoring Questions Equity IssuesWith respect to moving to Standards Based Grading and more distributed Assessment of Student Learning models, could TPSE support more research on the efficacy and equity impact of such models.

How sizable are the funds, Dave?
Paula Talley

Will you post a link to the document you are referring to?
Ron Buckmire (he/him)
28:23
Possible actions from Dave: 1) Funds (<$2k) available for MAG subgroups to work on specific projects ; 2) Webinar on what’s next: what will people take from teaching online/remotely to future teaching

Currently talking about 4 priorities identified for this group: Academic IntegrityDiversity/Equity/InclusionEngaging StudentsAcademic Leadership Development (training faculty)Ideas we might take to the NSF - possible RFPs that would help make progress on our area
Bree Ettinger
31:07
Maybe instead of listing the tools, you could focus on a course like Calculus I and give sample assignments with that use the tools.
Paula Talley
33:40
I like Bree’s idea - even showing good activities for those classes such as Desmos activities for concepts, etc.

Is there any evidence component of sharing these ideas? It would be great to connect what people have tried to evidence about teaching/learning/equity.
Ron Buckmire (he/him)
38:03
@Ray do you mean what’s in the literature?
Ray Levy
38:09
Yes
Ray Levy
38:46
To avoid the "tech makes learning better" without evidence, especially from an equity perspective.
Rick Cleary, he/him, Babson College
39:05
I have another meeting to go to … thanks as always Ron and Nan!
Haynes R Miller
39:09
So what would be useful would be to have enthusiastic vignettes accompanied by reference to education literature
Ray Levy
39:15
Yes

For example, if a strategy was working well for 80% of the students, what was going on with the other 20%?
Ben Galluzzo
40:16
Also, vignettes don't have to be just about Engaging Students - we could identify some as promoting Academic Integrity and DEI (not sure about NSF or Acad. Leadership)
Ron Buckmire (he/him)
46:04
Julie: for the minutes. Two action items: 1) Produce 5 video vignettes on useful tech tools in online/remote teaching and 2) Longer documents on bigger issues (academic integrity, mastery grading, oral exams, DEI, etc) that have a brief literature review associated with them

Nan's question about what motivates people to consider new practices partly gets back to local incentives and culture. Department review like Sea Change - yes. Also what goes in annual reports and reappointment/promotion/tenure materials?

Dave Kung (SMCM, he/him)

I’m intrigued by the idea of gathering info about Standards Based Grading. It touches so many topics - as an alternative to high stakes testing, as a tool to attack DEI issues, etc. It’s a hot topic on the NExT lists - and one of the most requested topics among the recent cohort.
