Departmental Action Teams: Empowering faculty to make sustainable change
written by Joel C. Corbo, Daniel L. Reinholz, Melissa H. Dancy, and Noah D. Finkelstein
We describe a new type of faculty working group, a Departmental Action Team (DAT), that forms one component of a larger strategy towards enacting cultural change in higher education. DATs empower a team of faculty members within a single department to make focused, sustainable change in their department. DATs focus on departmental development, supporting faculty in designing and implementing structures to address an educational problem of mutual interest and broad-scale importance to their department (rather than trying to "solve" the problem themselves). This contrasts other faculty development efforts like Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs), which support the individual development of faculty from different departments through reflection on separate education projects. We contextualize the DAT model through a case study of a group that is focused on improving gender and racial equity among their undergraduate majors.
