Transcript of "Strategies For Improving Hallmark Entries[1]"

  1. 1. Strategies For Improving Hallmark Entries<br />Presented By:<br />Kentucky Co-Regional Officer Team<br />Alpha Xi Gamma Chapter<br />
  2. 2. Mission Statement<br />Phi Theta Kappa’s purpose is to first and foremost recognize scholarly achievement among two-year college students. In addition to this, members have opportunities for personal growth through involvement in a variety of programs centered on the Society Hallmarks of Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Fellowship. Many Phi Theta Kappa programs also promote civic engagement, by encouraging participants to think of chapter programming in terms of its impact on the college campus and in the community.<br />
  3. 3. Hallmarks<br />Participation encourages excellence, reflects fairness, recognizes quality, and leads to enhanced student, advisor, and chapter development.<br />Hallmark Program<br />
  4. 4. Scholarship<br />Programs primarily focus on educating chapter members, other chapters, the college’s student body and the community about important issues raised by the Phi Theta Kappa Honors Study Topic. Chapter programming related to the Scholarship Hallmark should also recognize and encourage the academic achievements of members, students and faculty.<br />
  5. 5. Leadership<br />Programs encourage chapters and members to assume roles as leaders in their chapters, colleges, and communities as well as on regional and/or international levels of the Society. In addition to assuming leadership positions, chapters are encouraged to foster the development of leadership skills among others through their programming.<br />
  6. 6. Service<br />Chapter initiatives related to the Service Hallmark should be primarily focused on the International Service Program. Other Service Hallmark activities include both service to the college and community outside the scope of the International Service Program, and activities that stress to others the value of and need for providing service.<br />
  7. 7. Fellowship<br />Phi Theta Kappa is truly a fellowship of scholars. As such, the hallmark of Fellowship is an intrinsic part of all Society programs. Chapters promote development among inactive chapters, facilitate communication between chapters and offer a balance of social and scholarly events<br />
  8. 8. Honors in Action<br />The use of two or more hallmarks, (plus Fellowship) in project planning and implementation. Scholarship begins with the Honors Study Topic.<br />How can scholarship and leadership be combined in a single project?<br />Scholarship and service?<br />
  9. 9. Honors Study Topic<br />The Paradox of Affluence:<br />Choices, Challenges, and Consequences<br />Paradox - a statement that is seemingly contradictory or opposed to common sense and yet is perhaps true.<br />Affluence - (a) an abundant flow or supply: Profusion. (b) an abundance of property: Wealth.<br />PTK Honors Guide<br />
  10. 10. Goal Setting<br />Goals just don’t “happen”<br />Set a common “vision”<br />What do we want?<br />Why do we want it?<br />How do we intend to get it?<br />When do we expect to finish?<br />
  11. 11. Goal Setting<br />Hardest part of Hallmark Award Entries<br />Why?<br />Extremely time consuming<br />Turn over rate of chapter officers<br />Project changes throughout year<br />Hard to determine year’s projects and programs<br />Not enough experience<br />Constantly adapting to circumstances<br />Not kept on record<br />
  12. 12. Brainstorming<br />Begin with ideas from the group<br />Do NOT discount good opportunities: <br />Even though it may not be a good idea for the intended project, do not discount it<br />You may reuse ideas at a later date to broaden your projects<br />Once it is on the board, the “idea” does not belong to any one person<br />Once all ideas are noted, then begin to decide whether it is an opportunity or not.<br />Next, decide if the proposed idea is suitable for the project at hand.<br />ALWAYS keep the extra ideas for future use!!<br />
  13. 13. Be S.MA.R.T.E.R.<br />SIMPLE:Clear, simple, specific goals give people an unmistakable vision of what needs to be done. <br />MEASURABLE:Establish how progress will be determined. <br />ACCOUNTABLE:Someone must be responsible for achieving the goal. Gives a sense of purpose to the goal. <br />REALISTIC: Both in terms of being meaningful and affordable. Goals without meaning are considered unrealistic.<br />TIMELY: Each element of action that must occur to achieve the goal should have a deadline established. <br />EXTENDING: Don’t forget your timeline! Set milestone dates for different tasks and stages of the goal.<br />REWRDING AND RECOGNITION:Participation in a project is more likely when members are rewarded and/or recognized for their efforts.<br />
  14. 14. Planning an Event<br />Share a “vision”.<br />Your team must determine what accomplishments would lead to your vision. <br />Participation creates a sense of ownership and a feeling of common destiny among those who help set the goals. <br />Group wisdom can help eliminate impractical ideas. <br />Examples:<br />Your community has a food pantry that services a lot of families in your area.<br />Your community has recently been affected by a severe ice storm or tornado.<br />
  15. 15. Journaling<br />For all Hallmarks, record such components as<br />The strategic planning process and goal setting for Honors in Action activities<br />How the current Honors Study Topic relates to the project<br />Responsibilities and assignments for individuals and committees<br />Milestones achieved and feedback for improving the project as it progresses<br />Reactions from participants and reactions from those served or impacted<br />How many people were involved or impacted and in what way<br />
  16. 16. Composing Your Hallmark<br />Primary Focuses<br />Maximum of four examples<br />Secondary Focuses<br />Maximum of three examples<br />Fellowship must be included in other three Hallmarks<br />Need to know what results are of each example<br />NEED TO SET GOALS<br />
  17. 17. Scholarship Hallmark<br />Primary Focus<br />2006-08 Honors Study Topic - Gold, Gods, and Glory: The Global Dynamics of Power<br />Secondary Focus<br />Recognizing and Encourage Scholarship - includes mentoring, tutoring, recognizing scholarship of faculty and students<br />
