Here is a Wordle based on all of the input from our 19 March 2011 Strategic Planning Day. If you click on it you will go the Wordle website and can see it in a much larger format. In a Wordle, the size of the word is proportional to the number of times that it was used. To develop this Wordle, I used all of the summary statements from all 27 tables in all 4 categories: context, programs, implementation and review.
One of the most interesting things is that “student(s)” was used more times than any other word, by a large margin: 165 times for student compared to 114 times for program, the second most used word. Faculty was next and was used only 39 times, and the others were used even fewer. While this isn’t a robust analysis by any means, I think it is interesting. If you just take a quick glance and accept that our words describe our thoughts, we were thinking about the right things on Saturday; students, programs, Wentworth, faculty, learning, alumni, co-op, education and our campus.
