Valencia College invites colleagues responsible for learning assessment, faculty development, student development, curriculum, institutional effectiveness and regional and program-specific accreditation to Orlando, to learn about effectively meeting the learning assessment needs and challenges faced by faculty, staff and administrators in community and technical colleges.
Audience: This conference will focus on community college and technical college employees with responsibility for learning assessment, faculty development, student development, curriculum, institutional effectiveness, regional and program-specific accreditation including:
- Teaching faculty
- College Presidents
- Institutional research, effectiveness and assessment staff
- Academic affairs administrators and staff
- Student affairs administrators and staff
At its best, learning assessment is intended to help us understand more about student learning and creating an environment within which faculty, staff and administrators can engage one another in ways that will improve learning over time. This conference will provide participants with theoretical and practical support for developing and implementing learning assessment activities that take into account the lived experience in today’s community and technical colleges. The conference promises a focus on learning, rather than accountability, as the number one priority in assessment.
Authentic assessment of student learning requires an ability to review the results and implications of learning assessment to determine how they impact curricular design. What an institution does with the results of learning assessment measures can have a significant impact on student learning. At this conference you will have plenty of opportunities to engage in conversations that matter to you, your work, and ultimately, your students.
