Love all this! Excellent work by everyone on this committee!
Sarah Lankenau Moench
31:17
Understanding multiple histories is absolutely key in the arts industries at this time. So important for our graduates to be both prepared to enter their industry as it currently exists and to also be changemakers.
Eben Alguire
31:40
I still feel like the year 2000 was, like, just a few years ago.
h.powell
42:34
How can we leverage this for accreditation?
Marshall Haning (he/him/his)
42:57
That's a great question
Tiza Garland (she/her)
44:29
@h.powell -- this is why I think we can include it in the Program Goals that each unit. If those reports are being reviewed by accrediting bodies and evaluated, then it is captured and recorded on a regular basis.
Jenny Baxley Lee (she/her/hers)
45:07
Agree, Tiza!
h.powell
46:32
Thanks Tiza and Jenny! I feel like if we can more readily merge the two since we have to report and modify SLOs periodically. Just wonderings…
h.powell
47:39
*program SLOs
Melissa Hyde
48:06
Do we need to think also in terms of competencies for people who are not necessarily going to go into careers that relate to their majors?
Tina Tallon
48:33
^^^ Fantastic question, Melissa!
h.powell
48:48
^^^yes Melissa!
Marshall Haning (he/him/his)
49:04
Great question, Melissa. I hope that some of these competencies will address folks no matter where they go, but that's definitely something that we could address more directly.
Eben Alguire
49:05
We are masters of order and chaos
Jenny Baxley Lee (she/her/hers)
49:15

Sophia Acord
49:31
^In the Business, Entrepreneurship, and Career Preparedness session this morning I learned that arts majors are significantly more likely to have entrepreneurial careers than other majors.
Sarah Lankenau Moench
49:43
Yes, so much project management in all that we do!
Katerie Gladdys
49:58
I appreciate Melissa's comment. I think that helps become part of helping the rest of campus understand what we do
Bill Bauer
50:33
I suspect that many/most of these goals are already being accomplished in one form or another in our programs. What will need to be done is for the area faculty to document where, exactly, they are happening, perhaps through a program matrix such as Marshall mentioned.
Eben Alguire
50:34
Project management, time management, creative problem solving, and presentation
Eben Alguire
50:48
Very heavy emphasis on combining soft skills and hard skills
h.powell
51:01
^^^yes@Bill!
Eben Alguire
51:39
I have added to my intro-level class a whole module on finding work in all of its forms. It is by far the most popular module I have
Ferol Carytsas (she/her)
52:04
@Bill, yes, absolutely! It's a great opportunity for units to engage in curriculum mapping
Tiza Garland (she/her)
52:13
Agreed, Bill. I see this as very manageable. I see no fear in it, from my point of view.
Sarah Lankenau Moench
52:16
@Eben I would love to see that and include it in early costume curriculum
Chelsea Cantrell
52:21
I learn that students struggle with this idea that college is separate from professional life. I try to encourage them to reframe their POV, rather than check all the "real work skills" boxes. everyone's idea of the real world is different.
Aaron Karlson
52:47
One thing we deal with in the animation program at DW is that our students are competing with students from art schools with longer and more rigorous programs. So teaching them professional skills on how to operate in the industry, allows them to immediately become hirable and how to navigate the competition while they improve their skills post college
Julia Morrisroe
53:08
Agreed, we do the work. We can do better helping students understand how what they learn is applicable to the "real" world
Jeffrey Pufahl
53:57
help students shift from extrinsic to intrinsic motivations
oozuzu

The BECP committee's upcoming report will resonate beautifully with this conversation....they have started good work tracking what is happening in that arena already across the college....
Eben Alguire
54:12
@sarah Sure! Lets chat some time! Its a part that still changes every semester, but it specifically gets called out as a high point in my evals
Sarah Lankenau Moench
54:59
@ eben, yes!
Ferol Carytsas (she/her)
55:08
@Tiza, yes, as another person that does programmatic reporting, this is manageable.
Tiza Garland (she/her)

FYI that UF Humanities Center's Assistant Director for Graduate Engagement (new hire - Dr. Sara Agnelli) is actively working on trainings for things like CV translation for the humanistic areas of the arts. #EnvisionHumanities https://envision.humanities.ufl.edu/
Piper Call (she,her)
56:15
It also seems like great information for parents who may disagree with their child's desire to major in an arts discipline - so helpful in recruiting and retention of students
Eben Alguire
56:33
@piper Yeah, this is a big roadblock for some of my students
Tiza Garland (she/her)
56:34
IMANI!!
Eben Alguire
56:58
@piper I've got a very promising student in engineering who would rather work entertainment, but his parents pay the bills
Ferol Carytsas (she/her)
58:08
Thank you for your work on this--it is so valuable and important. I'm excited to continue the dialogue!
Chelsea Cantrell
58:08
Same here @eben. I teach animation and imagine parents learning their kid wants to major in cartoons haha! Obviously is a very rewarding and huge industry but yes. Arts struggle with this.
Piper Call (she,her)
58:12
and equip the student with the information to convince parents
oozuzu
58:26
Yes Steven. and Michelle....Assessment …. particularly nimble, communicable....that lives in the teaching and learning community is what would make the whole thing come to life....
Tiza Garland (she/her)
58:29
This could be included as a level in the Academic Learning Compact by providing a curriculum map with these goals. That will also put it on the website.
Joan Frosch
58:35
SLO’s are updated to document programmatic changes. That’s the easy part. Michelle's point of SEEING , ARTICULATING and the earlier point of shifting the POV s important !
Bonnie Bernau
58:52
Great suggestion Joan (Hi!)
Michelle Tillander
58:56
yes Joan and Piper!
Tiza Garland (she/her)
58:57
Ack…. Imani… we didn't get you comment!
h.powell
