Strategic Planning Goals:
1.      Organize a program directors meeting at the 2008 SIOP conference
Actions to date: 
  • Completed; this is on the program for the 2008 SIOP conference.
2.      Deliver an evaluation and recommendation concerning group study abroad opportunities for SIOP to coordinate among U.S. graduate programs.
Actions to date: 
  • This sub-committee, headed by Bill Attenweiler, has drafted an initial report and is seeking feedback from the Executive Committee.
Requested Action Item
The E&T committee asks that the Executive Committee consider the report provided by the International Graduate Student Exchange Program Sub-Committee and that they task the subcommittee with the development of more specific recommendations for establishing a program.
3.      Maintain and increase the SIOP Teaching WIKI website’s content (i.e., syllabi, in-class activities, and out-of-class projects).
Actions to date: 
  • We are in the process of looking for someone to head the subcommittee which oversees that WIKI site. Progress has been limited while we search for this person.
4.      Promote the SIOP Teaching WIKI website to potential users
Actions to date: 
  • See above. We hope to move on this goal in the coming months. 
5.      Assess the current state of education and training in consulting and business skills in US I-O master's and Ph.D. training programs, and to compare this with employers' perceptions of the preparedness of new I-O Ph.D.s in terms of the basic business and consulting skills.
Actions to date: 
  • The committee has been formed and is in the process of developing a survey and exploring how best to conduct the survey.  
6.      Continue to build awareness of the I-O Ambassador’s program both within the I-O community and across academic psychology departments as a whole. Have the first actual ambassador visits to academic departments during the fall 2007 semester.
  • SIOP AO distributed an informational email to psychology department chairs.
  • To date, there have been two or three requests to the AO for a list of speakers but we are not sure that any visits have been made.
    • We need to find a way to further advertise this program.
    • We should also think of a method for getting feedback on any Ambassador visits. 
7.      Expand the Master's Consortium from four sessions to six sessions.
Actions to Date: 
  • Dan Sachau and his team attempted to expand to 6 sessions but conference space was limited so we had to stay with four session this year. We will tray again next year.
