Abstract: Y28.00001 : Tips and strategies on using the EP3 Guide for improving physics departments*
8:00 AM–8:36 AM
This presentation will start with a brief overview of the EP3 guide, that includes its development, structure, and how the guide’s content will be updated and improved going forward. Following this overview, we will discuss tips and strategies for using the guide, based on audience interests. This may include how to (a) frame the local problem or concern, (b) identify relevant sections of the guide, (c) recognize and promote strategies the department is already engaging in, (d) select potential directions to consider, (e) facilitate conversations regarding issues surrounding implementation (e.g., resources, space), (f) assess the effectiveness of the initiatives undertaken, and (g) design efforts to change your program in a sustainable way.
