  • SRINTENTIONAL COLLABORATION | Innovation Collaborative (ICO) integrates collaboration, continuous improvement, and professional development, with the goal of improving student success and catalyzing change across institutions. ICO team members work together as highly collaborative teams with the goal of maximizing student success while improving their own practice.ICO team members collaborate with their colleagues at other colleges across the Gateway to College National Network.ICO team members engage in continuous improvement of student outcomes through a cycle of inquiry.ICO leaders  model collaboration and continuous improvement through robust and direct participation. INTEGRATED LEADERSHIP | Innovation Collaborative demands intentional institutional action in order to meet project objectives while striving toward the ultimate goal of significantly increasing persistence and degree completion rates of students starting in developmental education.  ICO colleges bring together stakeholders from distinct areas of the college in order to create a comprehensive approach to buy-in and decision making. ICO team members reach across departmental boundaries in order to meet project goals and promote shared accountability for student success throughout the pipeline. ICO leaders consistently support and demonstrate a strong commitment to the professional growth of faculty.ICO colleges maintain a vision for long term success and acknowledge time and sustained effort as key components of the change process.INNOVATIVE TEACHING & LEARNING | Innovation Collaborative encourages the implementation of innovative pedagogical techniques based on both research and proven practices in effective teaching and learning. ICO colleges create and promote structures within the college that allow students to take classes as a community of learners.ICO teams use the Gateway to College National Network Principles of Teaching and Learning to guide the implementation and continuous improvement of pedagogy.  HOLISTIC STUDENT SUPPORT | Innovation Collaborativedevelops and implement services and structures  to address the needs of the whole student in order to maximize student persistence and completion. ICO teams create andmaintain relationshipswith student services colleagues who can help students to utilize available campus and community resource options for whole student support.ICO teams utilize strengths-based and solution-focused approaches to student support.ICO teams create and foster community among students to increase their academic and social integration into the college environment. I’m curious as to why you have called out just the leaders here. I’m wondering how the meaning/intent would change if we listed it as team members. Perhaps let’s move this up to become the umbrellas statement and delete the current one.
  • JAThese principles provide the framework for teaching and learning in Gateway to College National Network (GtCNN) programs. They do not specify content. Rather, they are precepts based on research and best practices that should be used by faculty, resource specialists, and directors to guide the design, facilitation, and assessment of all learning in GtCNN programs. While, taken together, these principles describe an ideal, they articulate what each GtCNN program should strive to achieve. Like our students, GtCNN programs are at different stages of development. As instructional leaders, GtCNN directors should lead their teams in assessing how well they are meeting each of the principles and, in the spirit of continuous improvement, identifying areas and strategies for improvement. The Gateway to College National Network supports those improvement efforts through face to face training, webinars, brown bag trainings, referrals to resources, tailored data analysis, and peer learning.

  • JA-allow participants time to read example-opportunity to react-5-10 minutes of discussion-bring up Tracy’s design checklist (two slides forward)-what are you excited about/wondering about--explain wonder to excitement continuum of the process

  • SRTEAM COMPOSITION: (COLLEGE)’s initial team will be comprised of a total of six college personnel including: One college leader in academics (e.g., dean of instruction, dean of developmental education, teaching and learning center director),One college leader in student support (e.g., dean or director of advising),One-to-two student success course faculty members (or equivalent), andTwo-to-three developmental education faculty members (reading, writing, or math). The scaled-up team will be comprised of a total of ten-to-twelve college personnel including:The initial six participantsFour-to-six additional faculty members willing to begin their own learning communities. (COLLEGE) commits to forming teams comprised of full-time personnel interested in being part of a national collaborative of educators interested in pursuing new approaches to teaching and supporting developmental education students. **In the Scaled-Up Team, colleges can choose course pairings in line with the start-up team, or pair with gatekeeper courses.

  • JAFull participation in listed events is mandatory. GtCNN’s firm expectation is that trainings will be attended in full and flight arrangements should be made accordingly. This may involve an additional night’s stay as needed. GtCNN will make every effort to set final training dates with participating college calendars in mind.
  • All project faculty are expected to be present for the full two days. This may require finding substitutes for classes. We need one lead to coordinate the visit logistics. An agenda will be sent in advance. The two leaders will also need to be available for a portion of this time to meet with the team and the coach and with the coach individually.-Consider self as learner-need one lead to help coordinate visit logistics-faculty need to be present
  • SR-ask for questions
  • SRGtCNN will evaluate the effectiveness of the initiative. (COLLEGE) agrees to participate in the evaluation, which will involve pre- and post-initiative surveys of faculty. (COLLEGE) also agrees to submit a brief final report that documents the use of funds, summarizes implementation successes and challenges, and outlines the feasibility of expanding the initiative on their campus. The evaluation and reporting requirements are outlined below:
