The meeting was called to order by Chairperson Barbara Kunkle.
Discussion began on the team’s charge, and how best to address the three task areas identified at the first meeting. It was determined that the team’s first priority should be to conduct a needs assessment to find out what the campus thinks is needed.
Barb reviewed several handouts including the draft for the Center for Teaching and Learning and information from the Professional Organizational Development Network for Higher Education (POD).
Discussion resumed on how to collect large amounts of data to identify the needs for professional development on campus. Ideas discussed include;
the development of a survey instrument, re-examining the results of Constellation – Vital Focus and Conversation Day (Cathy Mullins will get a summary), and data on who is involved in Learning Communities on campus. Chris Nourse, Sam Coppoletti and Xiaodan Huang will develop a draft of a survey for needs assessment. Steve Rader, Pete Duncan, and Jeff Bauer will look at our comparative institutions (not just Ohio institutions) to gather information about teaching and learning centers/staff development at those colleges and universities.

The next meeting for the Action Team is scheduled for Friday, February 3, at 12:30 in the President’s Conference Room.
