March 23, 2021 – Santa Fe College Vice President for Assessment, Research and Technology, Dr. Lisa Armour, is inviting the college community to take part in a Zoom town hall meeting this Friday, March 26, from 3-4:30 p.m. The town hall is designed to be a discussion of ideas for Santa Fe College’s next Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) as part of its accreditation process with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).
SACSCOC describes the QEP as Standard 7.2:
The institution has a Quality Enhancement Plan that (a) has a topic identified through its ongoing, comprehensive planning and evaluation processes; (b) has broad-based support of institutional constituencies; (c) focuses on improving specific student learning outcomes and/or student success; (d) commits resources to initiate, implement, and complete the QEP; and (e) includes a plan to assess achievement.
Many of you have been part of a Data Circle. Data Circle discussions may have inspired ideas about areas of challenge in terms of student learning outcomes and/or student success. Others may have ideas based on data you review as part of your work. Either way, please join us March 26 to propose ideas for consideration by a larger group.
As part of this event, up to ten workgroups (of two or more) who wish to take 5 minutes to pitch an idea will be given a spot on the agenda to do so. Pitched ideas will be discussed in breakout rooms as part of the workshop.
If you have a great idea, but will not be able to participate, you may submit to Lisa Armour a video pitch of 5 minutes or less. After the workshop, video pitches will be made available through a Canvas course open to faculty and staff. The workshop is a kickoff event rather than a QEP selection event.
Please email Cheryl Farrell at firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link to the workshop.
