Outcomes-Based Assessment of Teaching & Learning Centers
Communicate your centerís value with outcomes-based assessments
As professionals in higher education, we know whether our programs are successful. We also know how valuable our programs are to our universities, our students, and our communities.
However, the decision makers at your university, the ones holding the purse strings, often do not know exactly how essential your program is to your students and to the value of your university.
This confusion is not the result of callousness or a lack of interest in your accomplishments. You just need to learn how to speak their language.
Outcomes-Based Assessment for Teaching & Learning Centers shows you how to communicate with your budget leaders by using outcomes-based assessments (as opposed to outputs-based assessments).
This outcomes-focused model will not only help you accurately track the strength of your programs, but it will also allow you to speak easily, with tangible examples, the value you provide to your community of learning.
Academic support centers rarely operate under financial models that allow them to prove that they are cost-effective. It is therefore important that support centers be able to measure and communicate the value of what they do, particularly in todayís budget climate.
This seminar is designed to help program leaders learn how to effectively use outcomes-based assessment as a reliable framework for measuring and communicating the benefits of any educational center or institution.
Outcomes-Based Assessment for Teaching & Learning Centers gives you a reliable framework for measuring tangible outcomes for your center and communicating these outcomes clearly to others.
By participating in this seminar you will gain a solid understanding of what outcomes-based assessment is, and a framework for developing and measuring outcomes that is applicable to any center in any institution.
Explore examples of this framework in practice and investigate resources for further study.
