The purpose of this topic is to provide access to data points you think might be useful for your committee and student colleagues to consider.  The most effective data points are those which are light on scholarly rhetoric and heavy on metaphoric connections which will help explain your point of view to your intended audience.

Clia logo 5 in FREE cooperative learning assessment software:
Cooperative Learning and Individual Assessment (CLIA), designed by Dr. Bridges, provides the accountability currently missing in the assessment of group work. This assessment tool provides the opportunity for the teacher to simply drop their class list into the software and students to be held accountable as they learn the real life skills necessary to work successfully in a group. The students will come to consensus, enjoy anonymous team member assessment on five different benchmarks and emerge without the group members experiencing ongoing social stress.

Collaborative Leadership Fellows (CLF) Program

“The future vitality of our community will be increasingly dependent on the quality of relationships that exists among our citizens. CLF provides a uniquely safe and energizing experience that will allow you to better understand yourself, your community, the perspectives of others from different community sectors, and the ways in which you can serve as a catalyst for community engagement and social change for the greater good.” — Jenny Hegland, Participant, 2008 CLF Cohort

This is a unique, community-based leadership development program focused on a specific collaborative skill set, multi-sector networking, and learning applied to complex community issues.
