Off the Beaten Path: A Pathway Model for Faculty & Staff
Co-Presented with Lynn Kanne
Seattle Central’s EDGE (Education + Design = Excellence) program applies the pathways concept to faculty development. Program participants can earn a stipend after participating in 29 hours of instruction focusing on technology tools, pedagogy, and accessibility. In its first two quarters, 109 individuals participated in over 1,000 hours of training in this program.
We will share our strategies and templates for organizing, marketing, and implementing this program. We’ll show how we addressed registering, tracking, and credentialing with tools and resources we already had: Canvas, Google, Badgr, Outlook, Illustrator and state-wide trainings and we’ll explore other development areas that might benefit from this pathways approach. Participants are invited to bring their own strategies and questions focused on programming for faculty and staff development.
