Assessment Leaders Gather in Nashville this July

Conf 2015 speakers

I wish to extend the following personal invitation to you for LiveText’s 14th Annual Assessment & Collaboration Conference, taking place at the  Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, TN July  13, 14 & 15. Those that attend our Conference leave with the kind of insights into assessment best practices that can be put to use immediately. This year, we are featuring sessions led by:

Joint Keynote: Dr. Jose Antonio Bowen, President, Goucher College & Dr. Peter Jonas, Professor, Chair, Doctoral Leadership, Cardinal Stritch University
Keynote: Dr. Belle Wheelan, President, Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges

Dr. Barbara Walvoord, Professor Emerita, University of Notre Dame
Dr. Cathrael (Kate) Kazin, JD, Chief Academic Officer, College for America (CfA) at Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU)

I hope you will consider attending, as our Conference is very different from other assessment conferences. During the three-day event, you would have the opportunity to hear from leading experts in the fields of student learning assessment and accreditation whose presentations who focus on trends in performance assessment with take-home strategies that support institutions’ continuous improvement efforts. You will see case studies in action that describe approaches for systematizing assessment institution wide, across multiple campuses, and for hybrid course offerings. And, of course, there is always time allotted for interaction with our presenters.

In addition, we have multiple panel discussion sessions moderated and chaired by both assessment practitioners, hands-on workshops in rubric design, implementation, and analysis, as well as collaborative events designed for idea exchange ideas with your peers.
