Departmental Facilitator Responsibilities & Frequently Asked Questions

Table of Contents

AY 2021-22 Inclusive Classroom Annual Training focuses on “Our Students: Creating a sense of belonging.”

Departmental (Dept.) facilitators for AY21-22 will assist and create synergy at the local level throughout the inclusive classroom annual training. The Department Chair/Unit Leader determines who the departmental facilitator is for their unit and notifies CELT of their selection.

Facilitator responsibilities, frequently asked questions, and the departmental facilitator rosters are all located on this page.

Dept. Facilitator Responsibilities

Departmental facilitators will receive a certificate of merit and a $500 professional development stipend from the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost (SVPP) upon completion of the following:

Required:

  • Assist the Inclusive Classroom annual training.
  • Attend at least two supplementary CELT Inclusive Classroom-related programs during AY21-22
  • Participate in feedback gathering and complete a self-reflection about your departmental facilitator experience

Optional:

  • Attend a pre-and post-workshop information session

We anticipate these activities will take approximately 5-10 hours.

Required

Assist the Inclusive Classroom annual training

Before the online synchronous/face-to-face program:

  • CELT will send a set of student-centered scenarios for the facilitator and department chair to select one for use during the small-group discussion at the training.
  • Promote the importance of the Inclusive Classroom pre-workshop modules in Canvas to the faculty and how it informs their teaching. Faculty will be enrolled at least 2-3 weeks before the synchronous/face-to-face program. Find additional information on the Training Frequently Asked Questions page.
  • Remind your faculty of the day/time and logistics at least twice (one week and the day before) before the synchronous program.

During the online synchronous/face-to-face program:

  • Engage and actively participate along with your colleagues in the synchronous program.
  • During the presentation, read aloud a short definition of the sense of belonging.

After the online synchronous/face-to-face program:

  • Strive to promote the next steps for Inclusive Classroom throughout the rest of the year with your colleagues during faculty meetings, periodic communications, etc.

Attend at least two supplementary CELT Inclusive Classroom-related programs

CELT Inclusive Classroom-related programming is open to all faculty, staff, and students interested in teaching inclusively during AY21-22. To see the topics and register, visit the inclusive classroom programs.

Participate in feedback gathering and complete a self-reflection

Complete the CELT post-AY21-22 Inclusive Classroom survey for feedback gathering at the end of the semester (December). Note: CELT will send the same survey to the department chair.


Optional: Pre-and Post-workshop Information Sessions

These optional meetings allow departmental facilitators to engage with the training before and after the facilitated program. Departmental/unit facilitators received Zoom registration information via email from Laura Bestler (bestler@iastate.edu).

Pre-workshop information session:

The agenda includes a brief program overview, ways to remind faculty of the modules/training, and discussion. CELT offered optional pre-workshop sessions (online synchronous), scheduled monthly throughout the 2021 fall semester.

Post-workshop information session:

The agenda includes a reflection, next steps, and discussion. CELT provided optional post-workshop sessions (online synchronous), scheduled monthly throughout the 2021 fall semester.

The last one is scheduled for November 29 (3:10-4 p.m.)

Unable to attend the post-workshop? Watch the Post-workshop session for departmental facilitators video (9m 41s)
