Critical Friends Mentoring Session 3 @ Hannah Administration Building, Room 443 | East Lansing | Michigan | United States
Critical Friends Mentoring Session 3 @ Hannah Administration Building, Room 443
Feb 25 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am

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.

Retrieved from: https://depts.washington.edu/ccph/pdf_files/CriticalFriends.pdf

Schedule

The first session will provide an overview of the program and model a Critical Friends session. We will also discuss best practices for mentoring and share additional resources available on campus. Sessions scheduled throughout the year will allow participants to self-select prior to the event whether they would like to share an issue.

Are you working on an outreach or engagement journal article, grant proposal, book chapter, thesis, dissertation, curriculum, or portfolio? Join us on the first Friday of each month for three hours of dedicated writing time to advance your community-engaged scholarship.

Participants should plan to write for the full time period and bring their own laptops. Write-Ins start with introductions, with participants sharing their writing goals for the day. Write-Ins end with a progress report, next steps, and lunch. Refreshments are available throughout the Write-Ins.

When you register, please request either the quiet writing room, the collaborative writing room, or a one-on-one feedback session from University Outreach and Engagement staff.

Write-Ins are free, but registration is required.

Spring Conference on Teaching, Learning, and Student Success

Each May, we host a conference of MSU educators that showcases innovative teaching ideas and fosters a dynamic community of all who enhance the experiences of students, faculty, and staff.

The goal of the meeting is to create a shared space for conversation about educational practices that lead to student success. To do so, we encourage sessions that share impactful and scholarly approaches to teaching, data related to student learning and success, and provide opportunities for professional growth. We hope to leverage the campus community’s collective skills and knowledge about teaching, learning, assessment, research, and administrative processes to advance student learning and benefit the entire university community.

Details for the 2020 Spring Conference on Teaching, Learning and Student Success will be provided as they become available.  The call for presentation proposals will be available in February.  Registration to attend will open in March 2020.
