Turning in a report

1 Dec

I was put in the lead on a recommendation committee for live streaming media across our three campuses. We are not well coordinated that’s for sure and this is certainly a step in he right direction. I had a group of five people working with me. It was a good process. I had some disagreements with the team and had to grapple with how to deal with it. I reached for guidance from the leadership I work under.

What I found was that I didn’t need to agree. I simply reported the differences in opinion honestly. There is this myth of consensus in higher education. Sometimes we don’t see eye to eye but we also must move forward and let the decision makers that requested the report read it and act.

Just glad to turn it in tomorrow.
