Assessment workshops are Thursday
Faculty and staff who want to learn more about program level assessment and writing student-learning outcomes for a course or program will have the opportunity with a two-part workshop this week.
The assessment workshops are Thursday, Sept. 29, in Morris Library, Room 139. Both sessions are for faculty, program assessment coordinators and staff to learn more about their role in program-level and course-level assessments of student learning.
Sharon Walters, assistant director, Assessment Program and Review, and Elaine Jurkowski, professor, School of Social Work, and a campus-wide assessment committee member, are the workshop presenters.
The workshops are:
- 10 a.m.-noon -- Assessment 101 -- Overview. A practical introduction to the basics of assessing student learning for both faculty and staff. The presentation will offer a broad introduction to the terminology of student-learning outcomes assessment and the rationale behind the process, with special emphasis on the first steps in the assessment cycle writing actionable student-learning outcomes. Participants will leave with a stronger understanding of how this process can enhance the impact of curricular activities inside and outside the classroom.
- 2-4 p.m. -- Assessment 102 – Measuring Learning and Mapping (academic and co-curricular). In this hands-on presentation, participants will learn how to create a curriculum/program map for both academic and co-curricular learning. Participants will leave with a stronger understanding of how this process can enhance the impact of curricular activities inside and outside the classroom.
Preregistration is appreciated. To help plan the sessions, please email your contact information to attend. If you are unable to attend either session, contact the presenters so they can set up a workshop for your college or department.
