Abstract Title: Investigating outcomes for physics faculty in a change leadership institute and characterizing the physics programs that participate
Abstract Type: Contributed Poster Presentation
Abstract: The Departmental Action Leadership Institute (DALI) engages physics faculty in professional development centered around improving change efforts within physics programs. As a part of the Effective Practices for Physics Programs (EP3) Initiative, DALI participants participate in a year-long cohort typically made up of two physics faculty representatives from five physics departments. The first cohort of DALI began in the Spring of 2021. Since then, there have been four complete cohorts of DALI with a fifth cohort currently underway. In this paper, we investigate who has participated in DALI as well as the participant outcomes of DALI. The physics programs that participated in DALI often serve small student populations and are primarily undergraduate-focused physics programs. We also find that at the end of DALI, participants feel well prepared to take on many aspects of change work, but report less experience with later stages of the process.
