Institutions across the University System of Georgia collect every year to share experiences, learn new strategies, and plan their work for student Momentum for the year ahead. The Momentum Summit V is an opportunity to review and refine the work institutions have committed to, assess progress, and chart a path forward for building upon success.
The overarching goal for the Summit is to support institutional teams in crafting concrete, ongoing plans for student success and Momentum by facilitating critical reflection, assessment, and evaluation of established areas of work, ongoing and emerging needs, and institutional priorities in the area of student success. This work should building on existing practices, identify priority areas for improvement, create a larger community on campus to focus on student success work, and identifying the critical changes that are necessary to ensure students can navigate their way to their goals.
We are continuing with a "flipped" meeting approach this year, inlcuding:
- an online "course" with pre-recorded presentations, resources and materials (log in here: https://usgtrain.view.usg.edu/),
- discussion areas for sharing your thoughtss,
- a week of virtual events for responding to the materials and presentations with peers,
- a week set aside for structured campus planning, and
- a Capstone event for campus teams to share their plans and learn from each other.
This design is intended to maximize opportunities for faculty and staff to participate and learn from one another, and honors our pledge that we would make the most of the time we have together for active, engaged conversations. Each participant will be enrolled in the Mometum Summit V course in MomentumU@USG, which will open in January 2023, and will be asked to engage with the material at their own pace in advance of the responsive sessions. During the sessions, participants will be able to engage with the presenters, hosts, and one another to dig deeper on the topics and share their experiences.
And, of course, the centerpiece of the Summit is the dedicated time for structured planning on campus that leads to the development of a campus Momentum Plan.
Participation is not capped for the virtual Summit, so institutions may include as many individuals as they like to join us. Not every person will need to attend every session, but we encourage campuses to plan and structure participation to ensure that each unit on campus is represented at each session and that teams are able to share and engage during the designated team planning sessions to the greatest extent possible.
