Apply for Department Action Teams Starting Sept. 12th!

Sep 5, 2023

By: Leslie Cramblet Alvarez, Assistant Vice Provost & Director of the Office of Teaching & Learning 


The Office of Teaching & Learning, in collaboration with the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs, extends an invitation to participate in Department Action Teams (DATs), an R1 Our Way initiative.  


Each DAT consists of 3-5 faculty and staff who will work with a facilitator to guide the department through a 10-month program aimed at sustainable change. Participating departments/programs will determine ways to apply the Teaching Quality Framework and ensure three voices (self, student, peer) are reflected in teaching evaluation for annual and consequential review. 


A DAT is an externally facilitated working group of about 3 to 5 faculty or staff that is created by a department to create sustainable change around a broad-scale issue related to teaching evaluation in the department/program and to help participants become change agents through developing facilitation and leadership skills.  


Proposal submission deadline: Monday, October 9th
