Beyond Carrots and Sticks: A Round-Table Discussion on Getting Faculty Involved in Quality Assurance Activities

60 minutes
Roundtable Discussion

Providing quality learning experiences for students is everyone's responsibility, but getting broad buy-in and involvement in quality assurance activities and professional development is often difficult. For various reasons, faculty may be hesitant to participate in activities or professional development that suggest changes to current teaching practices. Join members of the MnLC Special Interest Group: Quality and Best Practices for a lively discussion about carrots (incentives) and sticks (motivators) that may work to get faculty involved. Come prepared to share your best ideas.

Session participants will be provided an opportunity to:
1. identify the personal carrots and/or sticks that work to encourage involvement in professional development and quality assurance activities.
2. discuss what works well and what doesn't in engaging faculty in professional development related to quality and best practices.
3. share ideas for soliciting interest and involvement in quality assurance activities and initiatives.

Topic Area(s): Quality Design in Teaching
