DATs in Real Life
Between 2014-2020 we facilitated seventeen DATs at CU Boulder and CSU. We are so gratified to see the changes that each DAT brought to their departments. Many DATs are continuing to work together, often with new members and internal facilitators. We salute your perseverance and resilience!
Do you want to make a group you’re involved with a more effective working team? We are excited to share these ideas and resources:
We began a new NSF-funded research project which will run from 2021-2022! Joel Corbo, Sarah Wise and Courtney Ngai are researching long-term impacts of DATs on student success using surveys, departmental artifacts, and interviews with former DAT members. You may be invited to participate sometime over the coming year.
We are pursuing funding opportunities and new institutional partners with the intention of training new DAT facilitators and expanding the DAT model beyond CU and CSU.
Feel free to contact us using this form with ideas or questions!
