The New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the North East Association for Institutional Research (NEAIR) are joining together to offer an afternoon workshop focusing on creating and sustaining institutional effectiveness and learning outcomes assessment.
This workshop will provide both administrators and faculty with tools and approaches for embedding assessment into the fabric of their institution. Charles Blaich, Director of the Center of Inquiry at Wabash College and the Higher Education Data Sharing Consortium will ground the workshop in the theory and practice of assessment focusing on transition from a gathering evidence approach to using evidence to inform planning, budgeting and curricular improvements.
Participants will then engage in a variety of guided discussions and activities. Through discussion and introspection, participants will be able to evaluate their current culture of assessment, identify opportunities for improvement in incorporating assessment into administrative and curricular activities, and suggest approaches for moving their institution to the next level.
The workshop is scheduled for Tuesday December 6th from 12:30 -3:00 PM with a box lunch included at the Boston Park Plaza hotel – a short walk from the NEASC Conference hotel, Fairmont Copley Plaza. The cost of the workshop is $50 per person. For further information on the workshop, contact Gayle Fink, firstname.lastname@example.org.
