Pre-conference Workshop: 3-hour interactive workshop

Cher C Hendricks, University of Idaho; Jesse Bishop, Georgia Highlands College; Brian Etheridge, Georgia Gwinnett College; Rod McRae, University of West Georgia; Marina Smitherman, Dalton State University

In this workshop, we explore powerful model (Symposium) for engaging faculty in campus initiatives and supporting them to take a more active role in leading during times of change. We have successfully used symposium to broaden faculty participation in change initiatives, connecting this work to what matters most to faculty and providing avenues for more inclusive collaboration across disciplines and divisions. Much of the workshop will be devoted to helping participants (1) identify areas where they can lead change on their campuses and (2) develop a draft plan for using symposium to increase faculty engagement in these efforts.
