Please share that Bhatta is by no means the only faculty member who believes this should be the case.
Ginger Blackmon [kno kwe] (she/her)
47:32
I believe we have already be asked about representation on that committee
LuAnn Piccard
48:15
A call for interest was proactively sent out so we could be prepared to move quickly.
Tara Palmer
49:38
Yes, thank you!

AMAZING work. Thank you Terry & Carrie!
Kitty Deal
01:09:37
Is the PowerPoint available for sharing?
LuAnn Piccard
01:09:54
Great job Accreditation Tri-chairs. Terry and Carrie, I totally agree with your spirit of optimism and how we build meaningful experiences for our students.
Kitty Deal
01:11:23
Quyanaa!
Veronica Howard
01:13:10
They've never accused me of being articulate before. :)
Jackie Cason
01:13:35
I move that FS request that the Administration adopt an alternative Title IX training that is valid (prepares workers to address probable scenarios), that can be completed in a reasonable amount of time without glitches, and that does not shift an undo legal burden from the institution to its employees.
Jill Flanders-Crosby
01:15:47
I sure did
pcfagan
01:16:37
These are very valid points, Jackie. Thank you!
Shawnalee Whitney
01:18:03
Colleagues, AI&e developed the Title IX training for students. It's been very well received. Earlier today I learned (from Heather Nash) that AI&e has been asked (by Mary Gower at SW) that we (AI&e) assist with the development of a training for faculty and staff -- essentially taking the student training and adapting it to our broader community.
Shawnalee Whitney
01:24:49
I completed the training in a f2f context this year, so I'd value the input of folks who took the online version.
Shawnalee Whitney
01:26:43
It sounds like it might be helpful for interested folks (or maybe a committee?) to see the version that students experienced so there's a basis of comparison?
Rachel Graham
01:28:48
Yes, Shawnalee, I think that would be great
Nelta Edwards
01:32:36
Sociology students have reported the same concerns.
Kitty Deal
01:42:10
CIM houses the CCGs for the courses
LuAnn Piccard
01:42:27
I think CIM is AWESOME! So much better than previous process. I appreciate the value that this platform provides. Thanks to the team that makes it possible.
Kitty Deal
01:43:00
I agree, LuAnn
Ginger Blackmon [kno kwe] (she/her)
01:43:45
I agree with LuAnn - it is a good tool for building Course and Curriculum Guides that informs the creation of syllabi.
Nalinaksha Bhattacharyya
01:48:28
Here is my email on CCG. I never received a reply.
Nalinaksha Bhattacharyya
01:48:41
Somehow I cannot cut and paste
Kitty Deal
01:50:39
Welcome to FS, Veronica!
LuAnn Piccard
01:51:32
Welcome Veronica!

typo carvey, from saturday night live.
Veronica Howard
02:02:37
This document/checklist seems incredibly helpful and very reasonable.
Carri Shamburger
02:02:59
Is that checklist posted?
Lorelei Sterling
02:03:28
Carri: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1CeHnHSknb8gDq2XZ2y5VYjpQym7i0e0h/view
Carri Shamburger
02:03:47
Thank you
Sharyl Toscano
02:07:53
students have a hand book. Would that satisfy the requirement since that is across courses and can be read once instead of being repeated in every class.
Sarah Prielipp
02:09:36
Yes, Sharyl, and a link that we can include to the handbook in our syllabus would be sufficient then.
Veronica Howard
02:10:08
There certainly is a question about what format best suits students. Here's relevant research: Kindness at First Sight: The Role of Syllabi in Impression Formation https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1177/0098628320959953
Lorelei Sterling
02:10:12
I like it Sharyl!
Toby Widdicombe (he/him)
02:13:08
It is foolish and inappropriate to include all these items in a syllabus. A syllabus is a summary of the course. That's it. The rest of it is using faculty to fulfill an admin mission. Put it online in one location.
Nalinaksha Bhattacharyya
02:16:36
I support Toby.
Jackie Cason
02:16:37
The “syllabus” as a genre has bifurcated, and it has grown into a learning map and a series of policies. The issue is whether the profusion of policies will overshadow the focus on learning. I advocate for some separation, recognizing that we have two distinct genres.
Heidi Tilicki
02:17:21
Point of order. Motion to extend the meeting?
Megan Ossiander-Gobeille
02:18:39
Good point Jackie!
Barbara Brown
02:28:18
Would we have found Chancellor Sandeen without a search firm?
LuAnn Piccard
02:28:42
I would like to speak
Jackie Cason
02:29:01
President Pitney mentioned, if my memory is correct, using a search firm but limiting some of their tasks. I’d like to learn more about whether there is something in between “all” and “nothing”
Barbara Brown
02:29:14
Agree with Jackie
Robin Dahlman
02:29:17
Agreed, Jodee.
Ginger Blackmon [kno kwe] (she/her)
02:30:39
I think what Pitney said was if she used one, it would be in a limited capacity
Jackie Cason
02:34:25
Good point Greg about the urgent timeline.
LuAnn Piccard
02:36:49
President Pitney suggested using the firm primarily for advertising rather than full support to identify and help recruit potential candidates.
Barbara Brown
02:39:28
Another example is the Kodiak College director was recruited through a search firm and she is wonderful.
Jackie Cason
02:39:32
Penny-wise can be pound foolish.
LuAnn Piccard
02:42:42
I agree Jackie.
Jackie Cason
02:43:51
It was a worthwhile discussion.
Lorelei Sterling
02:45:08
Thanks Jackie!
Lorelei Sterling
02:45:18
And thanks everyone for the robust discussion
Carrie King
02:46:05
Where can we read the motion we are voting on?
Veronica Howard
02:47:18
Vote yes = take them outVote no = leave them in?
Heidi Tilicki
02:48:11
Correct
Veronica Howard
02:48:20
Thank you Heidi!
Toby Widdicombe (he/him)
02:50:09
A tie was rather exciting!
Veronica Howard
02:53:11
Regarding Circle In: Faculty should bear carefully in mind that should they adopt the system, they will NOT be able to see the names of students engaging in the platform and will have no agency to reach out to provide additional support if concerns develop. It will also help to have a VERY clear policy on how Circle In can be used given that material will ONLY be removed from the platform if faculty can demonstrate how it violates the course policy.
Veronica Howard
02:56:19
WOOO! GO TEAM!Stay safe all!
