AD&D Pre-Conference Workshop
"Assessment: From Program Reviews to Learning Outcomes"

Wednesday, March 30, 2022
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm ET

The comprehensive and complex nature of University Colleges and Undergraduate divisions can lead to assessment being an overwhelming undertaking. In this session, assessment at three levels will be discussed:  institutional accreditation and strategic planning, program review for units/divisions, and learning outcomes for programs/services.  This session will help participants break down assessment into manageable parts.  Participants will begin to develop assessment plans at all three levels to take back to their campuses for implementation.
