Between the Red Queen's Court and the Vulcan High Council: Meaningful Assessment of Faculty Centers
A 30-year old faculty development center faced the need to present acceptable metrics to academic affairs and IT, their two primary financial sponsors, which have very different ways of approaching value. We created an evaluation structure that was accepted by both. This integrates our experience, an overview of the evaluation, the preliminary results, and our next stages in improvement into an interactive and fun meta-analysis of the challenges and possibilities for creating meaningful metrics for real improvement and motivation at Centers for Teaching and Learning that also meet (or exceed) the expectations of diverse sponsors.
