Power60: NCCI's Online Professional Development Sessions
Power60: NCCI’s Online Professional Development Sessions
NCCI’s Power 60 Professional Development Sessions (formerly called Coffee Breaks) are a series of hour-long webinar discussions led by higher education thought leaders. Power60s are held monthly, with the exception of July and December, due to the NCCI Annual Conference and holidays, respectively. The webinars are open to the public. They are a great way for non-member institutions to better understand the value that NCCI could bring to their institutions. While there are no fees to participate, registration is necessary. Below you can register for upcoming Power60s or view information of past webinars.
Upcoming Power 60 Webinars
Engaging Faculty in Quality Initiatives
Presented by: Nancy Arnold & Mandi Crespo, Carleton University
Thursday, February 21, 2019 from 1 – 2 p.m. Eastern
In response to a desire to increase collaboration and decrease the challenges of working in silos, the Office of Quality Initiatives (OQI) at Carleton University set a strategic objective to grow its engagement with faculty on campus. This session will provide an overview of the successes and challenges of engaging our academic colleagues in continuous improvement with a focus on strategies that have led to success and case studies from the OQI portfolio of services.
After the Thrill is Gone: Sustaining High-Performing Teams
Presented by: Sharon Tse, Wayne State University
Tuesday, March 19, 2019 from Noon – 1 p.m. Eastern
Most teams start out with a high degree of enthusiasm and expectations of achieving their goals. But early momentum can quickly erode. This session focuses on practical and imaginative ways to drive initiatives forward before your team hits a wall.
Making Lean Learning Flow from Training to Skilled Practitioner
Presented by: Ruth Archer, Michigan Technological University
Thursday, April 18, 2019 from 1 – 2 p.m. Eastern
Too often, our newly trained Lean facilitators were not engaging, and the facilitators that remained active were not actively growing their Lean thinking and practice. Our facilitators needed systematic coaching, mentoring, and training. We developed a Lean certification framework that clearly defines Lean facilitator expectations, gets supervisor buy in, builds our Lean community of practice, and provides a structured way for our facilitators to grow in Lean knowledge, skills, and abilities. The certification process also enables us to better define, measure, and report our facilitator activities. Actively managing this valuable resource will ensure its continued success.
