Make It Personal: Using Data to Inform Faculty Professional Development

Tuesday, July 17 | 2:25PM–2:45PM ET
Session Type: Virtual
Do you want to make faculty professional development meaningful to participants? Simply asking faculty what they need is not enough. Personalized learning uses data to inform which strategies or interventions are required for an individual to reach a goal or objective. To increase faculty digital fluency, we first need to understand individual strengths and weaknesses. A needs assessment to determine faculty needs may provide a pathway for personalization of faculty professional development. We will explore a competency-based needs assessment instrument and work together to design a needs assessment instrument relevant to participants' respective institutional goals.

Outcomes: Explore how a competency-based needs assessment can be used to personalize digital fluency–centered PD for individual faculty members * Develop a competency-based needs assessment relevant to the institutional goals and digital fluency gaps of faculty at your institution * Create a personalized learning plan for faculty based on data from a competency-based needs assessment
