Assessment Day 2022 is scheduled for Tuesday, February 22nd from 11am – 1pm. We will be on a convocation schedule for these constructive faculty workshops and to allow time for departments to engage with students for learning assessment activities. Mark your calendars and rally your department for the two following workshop sessions!
11am – 12pm: Advancing Departmental Assessment Practice
Join us to learn more about the ongoing evolution and improvement in departmental assessment activities. We will talk about concrete steps that you can consider with your department to take your assessment work to the next level, with a particular focus on using assessment methods to answer meaningful questions about high-quality teaching practice in courses and your curriculum. Departments are encouraged to attend as a group, where they can work in their own breakout Zoom space. Based on your needs, we will provide opportunities for departments to discuss their assessment goals with on demand support from assessment committee members.
12pm – 1pm: AugSem Course Design and Community Engagement Project
Join Lyz Wendland, the Director of First Year Experience Program, and Ben Denkinger, Director of Assessment, for an opportunity to hear about the results of the fall 2021 AugSem assessment project. We collected data on AugSem course design, common visits from student support groups, and directly assessed first-year students’ thinking on the Community Engagement Learning Outcome. AugSem instructors and those with an interest and background in fostering community and civic engagement opportunities are encouraged to attend.
