This year I had the honor and privilege to collaborate with a number of well-known researchers in the area of faculty/educational development on two different projects:
DEFINING WHAT MATTERS: Guidelines for Comprehensive Center forTeaching and Learning (CTL) Evaluation – a collaboration of 15 members of the POD Network
A Center for Teaching and Learning Matrix – a collaboration between ACE and POD Network. We worked to revise the first matrix that was released in 2017.
Both of these collaborations focused on ways that institutions and their associated teaching/learning/faculty development units can evaluate their impact on the institution in ways that makes sense and are transparent to anyone. In the spirit of educational development, both of these publications are inspirational, assessing where the unit is and where they would like or need to be.
