Reflection Year Questions – (Continue discussion)

Program Level –

  1. The committee decided that it’s too late to add any reflection type of exercise to the 2014-2015 PR cycle but would plan for a year of reflection in 2022.
  2. For the next accreditation cycle the committee agreed to create a separate reflection document. The questions would be set upfront so the instructional programs would know what questions the committee will be asking them. This will allow them to prepare.
  3. The committee would work on the questions that would have bulleted goals, such as: equity, enrollment, assessment, SLO & etc.
  4. Recommendation to have a reflection activity at Convocation and/or at the Opening Day.
  5. Divisions/departments determine the format for their area PR submissions
  6. Reflection on how the department interacts with each other

Reflection on IPBT process -

  1. Look at the bigger picture – e.g. hiring process, etc. – do we like the process?
  2. Implement a campus survey – what does the IPBT do?
  3. Why aren’t more faculty joining the shared governance committees?
  4. Schedule a retreat day for IPBT to reflect on their processes and work – Espinosa-Pieb will look to schedule on a Friday in spring.

The team suggested that the deans address a few questions in their PR summary. Examples of questions are:

  1. What do you like and dislike or found helpful or found confusing about IPBT process?
  2. What about the process worked for you?
  3. What would you like to be changed?
  4. What have you learned about the process?
  5. Do you understand more about the process and why you need to put your requests for equipment, staff & etc. in program review?
