Resources Right Under Our Nose

Posted By Kaskaskia College _, Wednesday, July 22, 2015
Updated: Wednesday, July 22, 2015

Born out of natural curiosity last year, Kaskaskia College undertook a faculty and staff survey just to see who had entrepreneurial experiences in their lives. We uncovered a small but exciting number of resources right in our midst. This year, we circled back and interviewed a number of them in more detail, to better determine how and when to use their knowledge. Of course the closing question in each interview was "will you continue to help us"? Our long term goal is to have a number of mentors ready for action.

Because the ASK has been in person and conversational we are better able to judge enthusiasm and commitment... important qualities of co-creators. Further, with the personal connections made, the door is open to asking for additional help in the future. We also better understand the interests of each person and what resources they bring into co-creation. With regard to faculty, several NEW prospects emerged for a cross campus/cross college team to be formed this Fall.

 The initial survey served a really useful purpose in the identification of prospects for follow up. What we have learned throughout our effectuation journey is that the personal one-on-one talks are the most productive. Larger group settings are fine for setting the stage and for introducing the principles of effectuation, but not much more. The one-on-one ASK draws out commitments and co-creators.

We love to share best practices around NACCE. Below are three ideas that we learned from past conference attendees that we thought would be helpful to communicate to our future conference participants:

 

1. Check to see if you have funds to spend down before your fiscal year ends! Not sure if you have expendable funds? It's worth an ask before your books close for 2015. Click here for a template to ask your department chair and/or manager. Things to include in your request are:

2. Look into the Perkins FundsOur conference meets the requirements of Perkins IV!

3. Are you a part of a union? You may be able to access professional development funds to cover some of the costs of attending the conference. Speak with your Human Resources Office for more information.

Also, check out this article about how to convince your boss to send you to a conference!
