‘Squaretable’ format for learning-technology series; next session is Thursday


Academic Technology Services is using the term “squaretable” to describe the format for the new monthly forum series addressing timely learning-technology topics. This month’s forum — on the topic of electronic textbook supplements — takes place at 3 p.m. this Thursday (Feb. 19) in Room 1004 of the Instructional Services Building. “Many faculty likely have been approached by publishers to use services such as Cengage’s Mindtap and wondered what, if anything, this might be able to add to your course,” writes Todd Dresser of ATS. “This is your chance to find out how your fellow faculty members have used these services and the degree to which they have found these services useful. We will have faculty members who use Mindtap, Aplia, and Pearson’s learning tools.” Future squaretables will cover topics such as building quizzes and tests, creating activities, integration with D2L, FERPA regulations, and more. Open to all.

In the news: Chancellor candidate visits continue

The search for the next UW-Green Bay chancellor was front-page news in Wednesday’s (May 14) Green Bay Press-Gazette, as reporter Patti Zarling attended Tuesday’s open forum and wrote a larger story about the selection process and what’s next. Zarling sat in on the public session for Bradley University’s David Glassman, who was the second of five candidates to present in Fort Howard Hall of the Weidner Center. Her story noted the packed room, with more than 100 people in attendance, and also featured commentary on the selection process from students and staff.

Each finalist will visit UW-Green Bay during the next 10 days for a series of tours, meetings and interviews. UW-Green Bay will host five public forums during which campus and community members are invited to hear from and weigh in on the candidates. All public forums will be held in Fort Howard Hall at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts on campus, 2420 Nicolet Drive. The candidates and their public forum times are as follows:

Gayle L. Ormiston

Public forum attendees will have the opportunity to submit feedback at the events or online via the Chancellor Search website, www.uwgb.edu/chancellor/search. Each chancellor finalist will deliver an approximately 20-minute presentation, which will be followed by a 40-minute question-and-answer session. There is no specified topic for the presentation, but committee members expect candidates will share information about their background and qualifications, likely introduce their significant other (if applicable) and speak about their interest in becoming UW-Green Bay’s sixth chancellor.

The upcoming public sessions will be the second group of forums held to gauge campus and community input on UW-Green Bay’s next chancellor. In late January and early February, the Search and Screen Committee held a series of five on-and off-campus sessions to gather thoughts on important considerations for choosing UW-Green Bay’s new leader.

After a series of presentations and personal interviews, UW System President Ray Cross and a special UW System Board of Regents Committee will recommend one individual to the full Board of Regents, which must approve the appointment. That is expected to happen at the board’s June meeting. The special committee is chaired by Regent Tim Higgins of Appleton; others on the committee are Regent Mark Bradley of Wausau, Regent Janice Mueller of Madison, and Regent Chuck Pruitt of Milwaukee.

The UW-Green Bay Chancellor Search website, www.uwgb.edu/chancellor/search, has more information on the process, including a video that showcases the campus and community. The Search and Screen Committee consists of 12 UW-Green Bay faculty members, two academic staff members, two classified staff members and two students. Two administrators and three community representatives round out the committee. A full roster is available online.

UW-Green Bay is a comprehensive public institution with an enrollment of approximately 6,600 students, exceptional facilities and affordable, high-quality programs. The University’s 360° of Learning brand is a promise that UW-Green Bay students will learn to examine and solve problems from multiple perspectives. Founded in 1965 and a member institution of the tradition-rich University of Wisconsin System, UW-Green Bay boasts more than 32,000 alumni.

In announcing the sessions now, before the finalists are named, the Chancellor Search and Screen Committee hopes to spread the word and maximize attendance, said committee chair Prof. Cheryl Grosso.

“The input of campus and community stakeholders is absolutely critical as this process continues,” Grosso said. “We hope that by holding these forums during the lunch hour, we can encourage as many people as possible to have their voices heard.”

Each chancellor finalist will deliver an approximately 20-minute presentation, which will be followed by a 40-minute question-and-answer session. There is no specified topic for the presentation, but committee members expect candidates will share information about their background and qualifications, likely introduce their significant other (if applicable) and speak about their interest in becoming UW-Green Bay’s sixth chancellor.

The forums will be part of a day-and-a-half long interview process for each finalist, during which time the candidate will tour campus and community and participate in a variety of meetings and interviews. The finalists are expected to be named in early May.

The upcoming public sessions will be the second group of forums held to gauge campus and community input on UW-Green Bay’s next chancellor.
