Course ID - CTD0795n 

Short Title: MDC^3 Leadership Trg   

 Audience    MDC3 Faculty Leaders 
Length of Workshop:        7 hours (1 Pre-Workshop, 4 Workshop, 2 Post-Workshop)  

* Approved CT&D Workshop for Faculty Professional Development hours.

Faculty leaders in MDC3 have been charged to organize their discipline peers and lead discussions about curriculum pathways and potential curriculum redesign. Success in this role requires strong facilitative leadership skills. This workshop is designed to augment their current skills and experience with additional tools and strategies for managing the sometimes difficult discussions with faculty colleagues. Through a combination of best practices, relevant case studies and collaborative, interactive learning methods participants will further develop and improve their facilitation skills.  

Participants will prepare for the workshop by completing an inventory of facilitator skills and appraising their strengths as a facilitator. Following the workshop each participant will complete a plan for the curriculum pathway development meetings in their discipline, including a timeline, and submit this to their Academic Dean (within two weeks). The plan will reflect their understanding of their key role in facilitation of this process. 


As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the goals of the UPP curriculum project to colleagues
  • Listen with empathy, exhibiting the patience needed for collaborative decision-making
  • Maintain a focus on achieving the outcomes of the project
  • Defuse volatile conversations using specific facilitation techniques
  • Employ methods to achieve consensus on core curriculum change issues
  • Organize an effective work plan to meet goals, objectives and deliverables
