Proposal Title

Vertical and Horizontal Assessment of a STEM Professional Development Academy Using Videos

Proposal Abstract

This session demonstrates how an evidence-based STEM professional development academy at a mid-sized public university uses video evidence to assess faculty growth and development. During a 36 hour summer academy faculty participants strategically planned changes to teaching methods and articulated these changes at the end of the academy through a SOTL project. During monthly meetings the following academic year, participants perform “elevator speech” updates of their implementation and research. Faculty also perform peer observations of each other’s classrooms in and outside of their disciplines, creating more rich qualitative evidence. We are tracking faculty progress by recording reflective videos as they end the academy and begin their projects. In this way we perform qualitative assessment of each participant’s growth and progress. Session participants will create a simple video reflection through an interactive exercise that models our faculty observation process.
