Session Format

Join us for an interesting and thought-provoking conversation on launching a comprehensive, continuous quality improvement model for online faculty development. The re-envisioned model creates the conceptual map for professional development/training, performance management, and recognition/career pathways with integrated metrics. Members from Capella University will share the results of their efforts to set clear expectations for faculty performance with data and aligned support services.  Discussion will include how this model impacted institutional culture and faculty behavior with the support of different data and tools. Participants will leave this session with a blueprint for rethinking how to align organizational changes and resources with their faculty development efforts and a deeper understanding on how faculty data supporting behavior changes.
