Saint Peter's Prep - Bleasdale

Module by: Jesuit Virtual Learning Academy. E-mail the author

Thread: Personal

Subgroup: Individual/Group

Foci: 6 plus years

Program Title: Faculty formation for the already formed

Contact Person/Office: Jane Bleasdale ( bleasdalej@spprep.org )

School: St. Peter’s Prep

Program Description: The formation for the already formed group offers continued personal support and interaction for faculty beyond their first five years. We meet once or twice a year for lunch to rekindle old connections, and catch up with our peer group. Meetings are for years 5 – 10, 10 – 15 etc

Rationale: Teachers are busy people and rarely make time for themselves and their professional relationships during the school day. The connection with peers that began in a school at the same time as us is unique. This is an opportunity to celebrate commitment to mission, friendship, longevity and reminisce.

Leadership: Director of faculty formation schedules, conversation and meetings led informally by participants.

Implementation: Implemented by the director of faculty formation after discussions with veteran teachers about how best to support their mission

Processes and Resources: Once a semester scheduled, lunch provided

Finances: $1000 per year

Rewards: Increased conversation between departments, teachers feel appreciated, desire for more time to meet and collaborate.

Time (When/Length): Once a semester for one hour

Location/Space: Formation office

Accountability/Assessment: Verbal feedback, online surveys evaluating formation opportunities.

Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
