Workshop Series Planned May 22 to Support Assessment Activities
A national expert on higher education assessment and accountability will lead a series of workshops for interested members of the campus community on May 22 at the Sheraton Conference Center. The workshops, sponsored by the University’s Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Assessment, are designed to provide support for assessment activities in co-curricular and functional areas within the University.
Titled “Moving Beyond Phase I,” the workshops will be facilitated by Gavin Henning, a professor at New England College and president of the Council for Advancement of Standards in Higher Education, an organization that sets standards for quality practice for programs and services in higher education.
Drawing on more than 20 years’ higher education experience as a practitioner, professor and scholar, Henning assists colleges and universities in building, implementing and evaluating cultures of assessment to document student learning and evaluate effectiveness of programs and services.
Following is the schedule for the May 22 workshop sessions:
Creating and Sustaining a Culture of Assessment—10:30-11:45 a.m.
Maximizing the Assessment Toolkit—1-2 p.m.
Using the CAS Standards for Program Assessment—2:15-3:15 p.m.
