What is the best way to engage faculty in ongoing improvements to student success? This immersive session will allow participants to experience a method used at WGU to connect faculty with their inter-rater agreement solely through data. After a high-level overview of the situation at WGU (1000+ evaluation faculty solely scoring student work; over 1.1 million evaluations this past year, a mix of part-time and full-time faculty in all four time zones and flexible work hours), the session will move to an experience of one method to improve inter-rater agreement. The audience can empathize with faculty while we show the information provided to faculty and our efforts to gauge faculty reaction. Institutional leadership and faculty may find the discussion appropriate to understand ways to address the challenge of engaging faculty in measurable learning outcomes. While this example starts with efforts to engage large, geographically dispersed faculty, the concepts discussed could apply to any university department striving to use a systematic approach to creating a collaborative environment. Possible topics include addressing fear of performance data, negative competition versus collaborative engagement, receptiveness to using measurable outcomes, and managing change.
