GVSU Conference (2018): "Program Assessment For Learning"
Slides, handouts, and resources from the conference keynote and workshop sessions are available on FTLC's conference website.
Summary: We are delighted to host our second university-wide event focused on assessment best practices at GVSU. The theme of the 2018 conference is: Program Assessment for Learning. We are interested in a larger conversation about how we can assess student learning efficiently and effectively. As with our last Assessment Conference, we have invited an outside expert to set the stage and offer fresh perspectives on the assessment process and how we can learn the most from our individual and collective efforts. Our speaker will be familiar to those who attended the 2017 Fall Conference on Teaching and Learning. We have invited back Dr. Regan A. R. Gurung, Ben J. and Joyce Rosenberg Professor of Human Development and Psychology, University of Wisconsin, Green Bay to provide opening and closing plenary presentations. Conference attendees will then attend their choice of concurrent session wherein select faculty and staff will share their approaches to program assessment and facilitate hands-on workshops. Participants will be encouraged to bring their own plans, ideas, and questions in order to make the sessions as productive as possible.
THIS EVENT WAS SPONSORED BY THE OFFICE OF THE PROVOST AND THE ROBERT AND MARY PEW FACULTY TEACHING AND LEARNING CENTER.
