Recruitment: Phase II Starting Now

We’re recruiting for two new teams, which will have initial meetings during Finals Week in Spring 2019. These teams will do the bulk of their work starting in Fall, but may have some tasks that can be accomplished over the summer (at the discretion of the team, once formed). Teams forming now include:

Program Mapping Process Team

Team Purpose:

    • Use relevant data collected during pilot program mapping project to design an effective process for mapping programs at Lane, including delineating process features such as
      • Key groups/roles to work with program personnel as maps are designed
      • Resources to support effective mapping practices, such as time, physical space, technology, materials from outside resources, other
      • Investigate and recommend how long an individual program should anticipate it will take to develop a program map (e.g., weeks, months, days?)
      • Investigate and recommend implementation steps, such as to whom are maps submitted, when and how are maps implemented (e.g., by whom, in what manner/format, etc), other  
      • Evaluation of maps; continuous improvement; how to determine if maps are effective

NOTE: This team will not develop program maps. Program maps will be developed within individual programs, by program personnel with the support of relevant college staff. This team is designing Lane’s process for developing program maps.

On-Ramp Team

    • Using college data and national models, identify key areas and ways that students move into Lane credit programs, including but not limited to non-credit to credit transition, developmental education, K-12 and high school partnerships, transfer from other institutions, and International programs
    • Identify and propose ways to smooth the student experience when transitioning into career communities, guided pathways, and eventual program maps
      • This includes examining, and making recommendations for improvements in, current systems and processes which effect the ease or difficulty of student transitions
      • Examples: Banner and other technical systems; how students experience their interactions with different areas of the college (are these consistent or disjointed?)
      • Propose how these can be most effectively designed as student-centered
    • Identify existing, planned, or diverted interventions that support student success and retention during and after transition into credit courses, with a particular focus on underrepresented groups
    • Collaborate with existing college taskforces on placement and developmental education redesign to coordinate efforts toward equitable student experience through pathways

Please review the recruitment document [in PDF] for more information about the expertise needed on each team. Then, fill out the recruitment survey at http://bit.ly/GP-Spring19 to get involved! Deadline for submitting the recruitment form is Wednesday, May 29.
