Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences
Our representative from Chalk & Wire visited our campus several times to help us acclimate to this new idea. Onsite training was pivotal for department coordinators to fully understand and appreciate what Chalk & Wire enabled us to do. Throughout the academic year, the system inspired us to cross departmental boundaries to more fully understand cross-curricular connections.
For example, the coordinator of the Humanities Department can now track written assignments across all of the majors at the college. This will allow her to understand student writing across the entire curriculum—not just in an English Composition class.
Also, our Chalk & Wire rep helped our Faculty Governance committee institute the e-portfolio for our Rank & Promotion. In addition, the Chalk & Wire system allowed us to easily choose the recipient of our first Faculty Teaching Award.
In a nutshell, Chalk & Wire has helped us identify commonalities and aspirations both in our curriculum and in our professional goals.
