Can you talk about the difference between this platform, vs. GivePulse and Engage?

Hi Kapreace! Collaboratory is framed as an annual reporting tool that is used primarily by faculty and staff. It is used as a culture change tool for developing institutional image and identity as an engaged institution. Other tools like you mention are often more student-focused and logistically oriented, and work to provide a platform to connect students to community partners’ volunteer opportunities, and track hours served through those opps at a granular level.

A relational graph database is key to our work - it enables us to identify gaps, strategically convene people together to work smarter, not harder, and identify key hubs of engaged work across our campus (think social network analysis).

That's a common question. simply stated, I'd say that GP/Engage was intended to help students find opportunities to engage (match-making). Coll is about culture change and understanding the impacts of our engagement, inform decision-making and examine reciprocity and mutual benefit. It includes outreach programs, one-time events, research, teaching (not just SL courses), and sustained initiatives. I'm a strong advocate for using it for providing evidence within Promotion and Tenure. My last comment is that GP and Collab are complimentary tools...they don't do the same thing, but could inform each other. There are campuses who use both.

Thank you Kristin

Faculty think about their work in buckets of teaching, research, and service. Collaboratory is about the activity, which means often times those things are all integrated. Our goals are to understand what faculty/staff/students are doing, why, and to what ends. Collab helps us capture engagement that enables us to do just that.

Can you use this tool to delenate

Can you use this tool to delineate between campuses?
Kristin Norris
01:20:14
As long as the campuses are all using Collaboratory, yes. Kristin Medlin and I will share some of our thinking about this on a national level today. At IU, yes, I can aggregate across all of the IU or slice and dice it as needed.

Hi Haley - can you talk a little bit more about what you mean?
Kristin Medlin - Collaboratory
01:20:36
(If K Norris didn’t answer your question already!)

How does a college or university connect with you at Collaboratory in order to collect this kind of data at the institutional level?
Haley Winston
01:22:20
Thank you! Yes. I think I got it. But I would love to chat. we have many different campuses (including 4 in the same city) in our system and they all want interfaces that are specific, but I care about the bigger picture.

You can reach out to Lauren or I directly, and we can talk with you about it more! lwendling@cecollaboratory.com or kmedlin@cecollaboratory.com

I've loved Ellen's approach - data collection as a faculty development process. As opposed to traditional requests for information to faculty (annual reports) where the data goes into a big black abyss for them.
Kristin Medlin - Collaboratory

Haley, our development roadmap includes visualizing some of these more sophisticated networks - like multiple universities within a state system, or a group of geographically close institutions that work in the same community. Stay tuned!

My vision is that every campus and every unit on campus has an Evan:)

Placemarking allows us to test whether being an "engaged institution" has anything to do with the context in which your institution resides. For example, is IUPUI highly engaged or is it because we are located in an urban context with X # of nonprofits within 5miles of campus

This is a GREAT project! Looking forward to exploring Collaboratory after this session.
