Center for Teaching Excellence Management Group Agenda

Four assistant and associate directors report to me as Director, Center for Teachng Excellece. As some readers will know, CTE is responsible for much of 'academic computing,' for facilitating and celelbrating good teaching and for audiovisual support services of all classes and university events. In addition to regular duties, each manager has a regular professional development project, which is what we will be discussing tomorrow.

Here is the agenda for tomorrow's meeting.

Management Group Agenda
February 8, 2007
Review of Professional Development Activities

[there is also a weekly quotation, but it didn't copy]

Good News
Updates for the CTE Calendar
Report from the University Library
Urgent items and announcements
Reports on professional development activities (4 min, with 2-3 minutes for questions)
[NOTE: The goal of these reports is to share what would be useful to other Management Group members. In planning your presentation, consider the following questions – I am not suggesting that you need to answer any or all of them specifically.]
• Since our last professional development meeting, what has been the focus of my professional development activities and why?
• Where do these activities fall on my professional development trajectory?
• What did I learn and accomplish?
• How will it make a difference, and to whom?
• What is its relationship to the work of CTE?
