Who are the "four additional ASE leaders?" Was there a formal process for inclusion or were they chosen ad-hoc?
I assume this Task Force has now disbanded?
GTF is still lively and has more "tasks" as outlined in the Strategic Plan. The +4 were volunteers (w/ some arm twisting) from the Board: Maura Sullivan, Chris Brandt, Marc DeMoya and Mo Shabahang. They have already donated many hours of their valuable time (including another hour after our 4 hour marathon Board meeting in Boston). I haven't allowed anyone to rotate off the GTF yet but would be open to additional self-nominees.
Ed Tech committee - Would leave off website and meeting app from their mission/goals. Formerly IT committee, their mission was revisited a couple years ago following the incorporation of BSC as our management company. Since BSC assumed more of the website and meeting app responsibility, the committee refocused on identifying and recommending educational technology tools and renamed the committee to "Ed Tech" accordingly.
Mike -totally agree and since the initial iteration of this we revised the recommendation to have the mission of Ed Tech to "identify and implement technology of value to ASE Membership."
There may be opportunities for the Ed Tech Committee to work directly with the Program Committee as many of the start-up education tech companies are looking for ways to promote their product and would likely be extra willing to sponsor a booth or session. I don't we have to formalize that in this document, but I wanted to mention it while I was thinking about it in case my Aricept does not kick in ;)
With respect to combining the Assessment & Evaluation Committee with the Curriculum Committee, was there a rationale for dropping Evaluation?
Roy - thanks and now we can all remember your great idea!
Gurjit - We left it to the members of the Curriculum and A&E Committees to select their new (combined) name, still TBD, possibly will retain all 3 terms and anticipate they will continue to work in the "Evaluation" sphere. Sorry if I misled you with my off-the-cuff example.
