One of the most valuable aspects of being a Collaboratory institution is the opportunity to learn with and from each other.  We are excited to announce a series of virtual workshops this Spring, available ONLY to Administrators, to support Collaboratory’s success on their campuses.  Our Spring 2022 offerings include:

Improving Partnerships with TRES and SOFAR

Tuesday, January 25, 2022 | 2:00-3:00pm EST

 

How do we know whether our partnerships are – or are moving in the direction of – transformational: generating fundamental change, from individual identities to organizational cultures to systemic justice?

Collaboratory is excited to welcome Dr. Patti Clayton, who has over 20 years of experience as a practitioner-scholar and educational developer in community-campus engagement and experiential education.  Dr. Patti Clayton is an independent consultant (PHC Ventures), senior scholar with the IUPUI Center for Service and Learning and with the Institute for Community and Economic Engagement at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

Dr. Clayton joins us for an introduction to and discussion about the SOFAR model, a conceptual framework for partnerships, and an introduction to the TRES II Scale and Reflection Framework.  We will share strategies for Collaboratory Administrators to think about how they might support and deepen partnerships on their campus, along with an opportunity to participate in a pilot project focused on partnership strength.

Carnegie + Collaboratory: 101

Tuesday, February 15, 2022 | 2:00-3:00pm EST

The 2024 Carnegie Community Engagement Classification cycle is upon us!  With the framework and applications released in January 2022, institutions are gearing up to apply.  Deciding to apply and preparing an application for the re/classification is no small task.  Join fellow Collaboratory Administrators to discuss all things Carnegie:

  • What is the value of re/applying for the classification?  To what ends?
  • What are the benefits of re/applying?  What do institutions ultimately want to change or advance by re/applying?
  • What are possible ways to approach the application process?
  • How can Collaboratory data be used to re/apply and initiate change on campus?

Leveraging Collaboratory Data in Promotion and Tenure

Tuesday, March 15, 2022 | 2:00-3:00pm EST

How can data captured in Collaboratory help institutions and their engaged faculty achieve promotion and tenure?  What data can be leveraged to “make the case” for engagement in promotion and tenure?  This Coffee Break will focus on the various ways institutions can use Collaboratory data to better recognize, reward, and retain their engaged faculty.

Collaboratory is currently in the early stages of developing individualized reports for faculty and staff who contribute data.  This Coffee Break will further assist the Collaboratory team gather requirements to generate these reports faculty may use when seeking promotion and tenure.

Collaboratory Data Use: Show and Tell

Tuesday, April 19, 2022 | 2:00-3:00pm EST

You’ve gotten activities into Collaboratory, now what?  Join this Coffee Break to discuss how to be proactive with your campus’s data and hear from other campuses as they share their own data use cases.  Hear what stories are being told to unique internal and external stakeholders and what are the most effective and innovative ways campuses use their data.
