This week marked an important milestone for the #HuMetricsHSS team: we were able to bring an amazing group of #HigherEd leaders at the University of Washington through the full story arc of the transformative work we hope to empower.
It begins with a reflective conversation about values that builds toward a values framework designed to inform every aspect of the work. We then deconstructed products of scholarship into their constitutive processes so we could identify ways to infuse our values into the micro-transactions that shape our work.
Then we invited colleagues to identify a meaningful change they want to make. We asked them to reflect on their positionality, the power they have to effect the change, and who they would need to enter into coalition with to be successful. We ended the workshop with four concrete areas of focus, a map of relationships that influence each area, and a set of values that will shape the way the coalition works together.
