Institutional Effectiveness Leadership in a Participatory Governance Environment

Friday, April 5, 9 am - 12 pm

Cost: $80 members / $110 non-members (includes morning refreshments)

Register now for this post-conference workshop!

Institutional research, planning, and effectiveness (IRPE) professionals are being asked to take on increasing areas of responsibility. This means that researchers with various levels of experience need to work hand-in-hand with faculty, classified staff, administrators, and students. Critical decisions about the future of our institutions must be informed by data produced by IRPE professionals. Examples include ongoing college efforts to align placement practices with AB 705 expectations and to develop local goals aligned with the Board of Governors and Chancellor’s Office Vision for Success. Initiatives such as these require a working knowledge of participatory governance policies, processes, and structures to ensure successful implementation. Yet there are few formal opportunities for such individuals to learn even the basics of participatory governance and implications for the field. Join us for an interactive workshop designed specifically for IRPE professionals to apply effective leadership principles in a participatory governance environment.

Excellence through Equity: Equity as a Driver for Institutional Effectiveness Efforts Across the College

Friday, April 5, 9 am - 1 pm

Cost: $95 member / $125 non-member (includes boxed lunch)

Register now for this post-conference workshop!

California community colleges are at a pivotal point in their history, with a renewed emphasis on equitable student outcomes and a paradigm shift away from student access to student success and completion. The intersection between institutional research, planning, and effectiveness (IRPE) work and equity-focused efforts has never been more clearly articulated. In addition to the moral imperative that goes along with applied/institutional research, the CCCCO Vision for Success, Student Equity and Achievement Program, and Student-Centered Funding Formula are bringing equity-minded student success to the forefront of community college improvement efforts across the state.

With this in mind, IRPE offices will need to be able to integrate equity-mindedness into everything from research and evaluation efforts, program review, strategic planning, and program review and assessment efforts. Join us for an interactive workshop designed specifically for IRPE professionals to apply equity-minded principles to institutional research, planning, and assessment efforts. Workshop facilitators will share strategies for building college infrastructure and momentum to advance a culture of excellence through equity.

Supporting Researchers Into and Through AB 705 Implementation and Evaluation

Friday, April 5, 9 am - 1 pm

Cost: $95 member / $125 non-member (includes boxed lunch)

Register now for this post-conference workshop!

Are you part of a team responsible for transitioning to AB 705 curriculum and supports? Have you been asked to slice the data to help answer questions around the types of students served in transfer-level and which groups perform at what levels? Have you been asked to evaluate the efficacy of an innovative course or sequence? Have you found yourself engaging in difficult discussions that require you to address anxieties and fears?

If yes, we invite you to join us for an interactive session focused on how to evaluate innovative curriculum, how to help guide faculty towards compliance, how to present research and findings in a compelling but non-threatening way, how to evaluate implementation from an equity lens, and how to influence change as an IR professional. This workshop is designed to provide support and create a network for researchers to address these topics and needs on their own campuses.
