SPIG Minutes for Friday, March 5th, 2004

10-10:55 AM

Attendants: Debbie Bordelon, Bart Everson, Michelle Falgoust, Susan Fredine, David Lanoue, and Todd Stanislav

The minutes of the 2-13-04 meeting were reviewed and approved with some amendments.

The minutes of the 2-27-04 meeting were similarly reviewed and approved with some amendments.

The approved minutes will be posted on the Center's website at: http://cat.xula.edu/about/spig/

Todd noted that Elizabeth Rhodes will attend next week's meeting to discuss the original design and purposes of the Center's K-12 relationships. Elizabeth will also describe how the relationships changed over time and offer her own views on the future of the Center's K-12 relationships.

Susan Fredine asked if Elizabeth could also describe the difficulties and challenges she observed in maintaining and promoting these relationships.

Todd also mentioned that he had not yet met with Dr. Kathleen Kennedy to discuss SWOT analysis. The group agreed that the importance and timing of this conversation will become apparent as the group's work progresses.

The group continued to look at the mission statements. There was considerable discussion about the meaning of "situated in a meaningful context." The group also discussed ideas related to the way in which the Center's program values both praxis and theory. Recommendations for re-wording the text that describes the section titled "Faculty Development Program" were made and will be incorporated into a new draft of the document.

The group began to discuss the distinction currently made in the document between the technology-based and non-technology-based initiatives associated with the Center's faculty development program. The group supported expanding the text that describes the latter initiatives, in particular. The group will resume this discussion in two weeks.

— Minutes respectfully submitted by Michelle Falgoust,
Administrative Assistant in the Center for the Advancement of Teaching
