Nov 19 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am
Critical Friends Mentoring Session 1 @ Hannah Administration Building, Room 309AB | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Description

This new program focuses on developing a community of peers who can give and receive effective feedback to promote group problem solving. Used at the Big Ten Academic Alliance Department Executive Officer (DEO) Training, the Critical Friends model will be used to facilitate structured conversations for solving problems around issues participants identify. This opportunity is open to all department chairs, school directors and associate deans in non-departmentally organized colleges who are in the first three years of their appointment.

The Critical Friends process focuses on developing collegial relationships, encouraging reflective practice, and rethinking leadership. This process is based in cooperative adult learning, which is often contrary to patterns established in work environments. It also addresses a situation in which many leaders find themselves – trained to work as independent units; certified as knowing all that is needed to know; feeling like the continuation of professional learning is not essential to the creation of an exciting, rich, learning environment; and that they are simply supervisors in the leadership role.

Critical in the context of the group is intended to mean “important” or “key” or “necessary.” Those who have used this process have found that many leaders are clumsy at being “critical.” They have further discovered that many leaders are trained to talk around and avoid difficult issues, not carefully confront them. The Critical Friends process provides an opportunity both to solicit and provide feedback in a manner that promotes reflective learning.

Academic Motherhood @ 110 Chittenden

Panelists:

Isabel Ayala, Associate Professor, Sociology, and Director, Chicano/Latino Studies Program

Karen Draths, Assistant Professor, Chemistry

Elizabeth (Lizzy) King, Assistant Director, Undergraduate Research and PhD Student

Emily Vliek, LMSW, Therapy Today Counseling and Consulting

Can one be an academic and a mother? Of course you can, and yet, this question is a common one. It is one female graduate students ask, and it is one female faculty ask. We ask it because the answer is not clear. We ask it also because the answer is shifting (McGranahan, 2015).

We invite you to join us for an open discussion about academic motherhood. A panel of mothers holding different appointment types from around campus will begin the discussion by reflecting on their experience’s as mothers in the academy and what they are doing to juggle the multiple priorities. The rest of the session will be reserved for participants to ask questions, connect with one another, and empower each other to seek out and ask for the support and resources they need.

You don’t have to have kids to join this session! If you are thinking about having kids or just want to learn more about ways to support those who do, we hope you will be a part of this important conversation.

Description

This new program focuses on developing a community of peers who can give and receive effective feedback to promote group problem solving. Used at the Big Ten Academic Alliance Department Executive Officer (DEO) Training, the Critical Friends model will be used to facilitate structured conversations for solving problems around issues participants identify. This opportunity is open to all department chairs, school directors and associate deans in non-departmentally organized colleges who are in the first three years of their appointment.

The Critical Friends process focuses on developing collegial relationships, encouraging reflective practice, and rethinking leadership. This process is based in cooperative adult learning, which is often contrary to patterns established in work environments. It also addresses a situation in which many leaders find themselves – trained to work as independent units; certified as knowing all that is needed to know; feeling like the continuation of professional learning is not essential to the creation of an exciting, rich, learning environment; and that they are simply supervisors in the leadership role.

Critical in the context of the group is intended to mean “important” or “key” or “necessary.” Those who have used this process have found that many leaders are clumsy at being “critical.” They have further discovered that many leaders are trained to talk around and avoid difficult issues, not carefully confront them. The Critical Friends process provides an opportunity both to solicit and provide feedback in a manner that promotes reflective learning.
