As the year winds down, we are happy to share that the ECP has some exciting announcements! In this newsletter we get to recognize outstanding ACT ECP posters, announce that Courtney Gosnell will take on the role of ECP committee chair, and say goodbye to two of our cherished members. We’ll also take a moment to briefly describe what we hope to accomplish in the coming year, so look out for some exciting things happening in the coming months!
ECP Poster Awards @ ACT 2022
Each year, the ECP committee gets the chance to read and review all ACT posters where the first author is an ECP. This year, for the first time ever, we got to review posters for both in person and online formats. There were so many wonderful posters that it was a challenge to narrow them down to just three! Here are the top three 2022 ECP ACT poster prizes, all of which are available online for ACT 2022 registrants:
· 1st Place: Megan Ringel - Flipping the Introductory Statistics Classroom: Benefits and Challenges Observed in the First Year
· 2nd Place: Shaina Rowell - Integrating Information Literacy in a Developmental Psychology Course (co-author: Melissa Vetter)
· 3rd Place (pictured): Shana Southard Dobbs - The Impact of Syllabus Statements of Support and Allyship on Student Perceptions of Instructor and Course (co-author: Tess Gemberling)
Welcome to Incoming Chair
We are excited to announce that Courtney Gosnell will be the 2023 ECP Committee chair! Courtney has been on the ECP committee for two years and throughout her time, her main role has focused on planning the ECP speed mentoring event at STP’s Annual Conference on Teaching. She’s excited to spend her last year on the committee getting to know the new members and supporting the committee’s mission to serve ECPs.
In addition to welcoming our newest members and chair, we must also say goodbye to our outgoing members: Janet Peters & Albee Mendoza. Janet has been on the committee since 2019 and served as chair this past year. She considers serving on the ECP as the most personally and professionally rewarding experience to date. Albee joined the committee in 2020 and after her term concludes, she hopes to carry on her legacy of service to STP by participating in other task forces and committees.
What’s in store for 2023
From mentoring to ACT 2023 in Portland, we are planning several opportunities for ECPs to engage in networking and development. And we invite you to be part of the process! What would you like to see from your ECP committee? What workshops, trainings, programs, or resources can we provide to help facilitate your personal and professional success?
