Join authors Stephanie Chasteen (University of Colorado Boulder) and Warren Code (University of British Columbia) as they discuss the messages from their new (free, opensource) Science Education Initiative Handbook on how to effectively use discipline-based education specialists to facilitate change within departments. They will discuss who makes a good educational expert, what their role can be within a department, how to train and support them, and engaging faculty and departments in change. This webinar is designed for program organizers, administrators, and departmental leaders who are trying to support educational change within or across departments. As a result of this webinar, participants will be prepared to identify potential educational experts who can act as change agents within their departments; identify productive roles and mechanisms for training and supporting these change agents; and consider effective strategies for engaging faculty and departments in the work of course transformation.
