What part of Professional Development Day was most impactful for you?

Hearing colleagues' stories and feeling connected to them. Also, getting the faculty and staff perspective in one table was awesome!
We all have a story, struggle, failures & successes. I think that sharing those stories can help others have a sense of belonging - being vulnerable, zero shame
Extended time in group with faculty/staff from across campus
This was the most effective meeting structure I've participated in so far at HSU. Group discussions, 10 min speakers, etc... worked well
Share experiences and perspectives. New way to look at the world.

Fall 19 Professional Development Day - Stories of Belonging

Professional Development Day is an opportunity for faculty and staff to come together to share ideas that inspire, build community, and offer equitable and inclusive learning opportunities. We gathered in August 2019 and heard from colleagues who shared their moving personal stories of belonging and then engaged in small group discussions about what we do that inspires our work in support of students. What a success it was! Please take the time to view the video which includes the personal stories of belonging, take note of the rousing discussions, and read feedback from participants.
