- TTBC, ITA, and Queens Printer
June 17, 2019: really good meeting with Pat, Guy and Jim today. They are totally on board with working with us but there will likely still be some conversations needed with ITA and Queen's Printer. Pat is going to put together sort of a workplan. She's struggling a bit because their process has been governed by what Open School and QP so is unsure of what things actually cost to do (I said our experience had been the OS is slower and more expensive). Anyway, those are the broad strokes. We think an MOU would be fruitful, and they are excited about announcing the partnership as well. Great stuff!!
- Following up on that conversation - I had an interesting chat with Pat (Aug 9) re: the possibility of a pan-initiative for future resource development - have been invited and will attend a planning mtg with TTBC's Jim and Guy and hopefully begin to flesh this out a bit more. The biggest obstacle from Pat's perspective is sustainability.
- Follow Up - Pat and I will be meeting Sept 9 at BCIT DTC, she will be showing me the enviro-scan she did prior to her launching the instructor resource project.
- Olaf Nielsen from Camosun asking about "WD" - had a great meeting one-on-one with Olaf to discuss partnership ideas between CAF (Canadian Apprenticeship Forum), Western Diversity (committee which Olaf chairs), and BCcampus. Olaf has asked me to sit on his committee to represent BCcampus, I accepted.
ZTC for the Trades
- had our first advisory group meeting and several initiatives come into focus with regards to moving forward;
- Working through articulation groups - there has been considerable interest from three articulation group chairs that their group would be ready to answer a call for proposals (Hairstylist / Sheet Metal / Millwright)
- Institutional Partnerships - in talking with several Deans there seems to be a keen interest in partnering with us/and other organizations to create the maximum leverage possible. Partnerships with TTBC are paramount here, with some emphasis on partnering with OER working groups from different institutions.
- Individual Contracts - in light of our recent OER team meeting there might be an opportunity to 'tap' a couple of faculty members to inquire about developing resources that would supplement ZTC initiative (eg. webinars, videos, instructor resources)
- there is also the possibility of cross-pollination when it comes to assisting other portfolio projects fro other areas. Eg. - homework systems, STEM, search-ability - this would need to be fleshed out in greater detail but could provide more opportunity for the those we contract/partner with.
- the resounding sentiment from the meeting was we should focus on developing student resources particularly with those trades that have little or extremely outdated materials.
Gap Analysis (Sprint/Design Thinking)
- talked with two articulation chairs about the possibility of BCcampus hosting a sprint/design thinking style gap analysis of their newly harmonized provincial outlines.
- received very positive feedback from both and will pursuit conducting these two activities in Jan/Feb.
- will develop a budget, agenda, and targets for each session
- this will highlight areas of top priority when it comes to curriculum development and moving towards a ZTC position with both trades.
- Millwright will be a tougher situation as their current resource is being looked at by one institution's Dean as a possible revenue source for the Millwright Dept.
- Hairstylist currently does not have a common or standardized curriculum set and each institution has historically built their own.
