Faculty & Staff Workshop #1: Practical, Research-based Guidelines: Assessment for Busy Faculty
Abstract: To some degree, assessment is always a bureaucratic compliance burden. However, it can also be a powerful process for researching, documenting, and improving the effectiveness, efficiency, and reputations of our academic programs. If designed and done well, assessment can actually save faculty time and program resources.
This fast-paced, highly interactive, hands-on session provides research-based guidelines and practical strategies for learning-centered (and faculty-directed) assessment at program and course levels. You will try out at least five simple, powerful assessment strategies, and leave with one or two to apply immediately to your and students’ advantage in your courses and/or programs.
