Form and Orient Team

Upon initiating a program (re)design project, one of the first tasks involves identifying your (re)design team. Typically, team members include a CTE educational developer, a program faculty leader(s) charged with overseeing the effort, an academic advisor, program teaching faculty, a graduate student, and current student representatives. Once the team is identified, an initial orientation meeting is held to introduce the team members to each other and to establish group dynamic expectations. Also during the orientation meeting, the team is presented the (re)design process’ goals, requirements, and general overview, along with determining the program’s readiness for change using a Readiness for Change Questionnaire. Results of the questionnaire are shared in subsequent meetings. Finally, the orientation meeting concludes with the team identifying the desired scope of curricular change and available project support, which inform the project’s timeline.
