Faculty Involvement – Still the Key to Successful Assessment of Student Learning

It’s hardly news that faculty involvement is essential if assessment efforts are going to have any traction and lead to real improvement in student learning. Yet a couple of decades into the assessment movement, winning faculty commitment remains a challenge at many institutions. Fortunately, assessment practice is evolving in ways that speak to faculty values and respect faculty expertise. In this webinar, we’ll consider what those changes are, how they connect with instructors’ priorities and passions, and how to design assessment to make optimal use of instructors’ time, energy, and talents. This webinar is presented by Dr. Barbara Wright, Consultant and former Vice President at the WASC Senior College and University Commission.
