Developing and Improving Meaningful Program Learning Outcomes

When: December 4, 2019, 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Where: Charlotte Frank Classroom (1203 HE)

Presenter(s): Multiple Presenters

At last month’s Assessment Breakfast, we had four presentations on developing or improving meaningful student learning outcomes at the program level. Now it’s time to bring those ideas home to your own department or program! So come with an appetite, and with your program learning outcomes (PLOs) and some thoughts or questions on how you might be able to improve them!

From the November 6th Breakfast: When assessing student learning within academic programs, we often have a case of “garbage-in, garbage-out:” even if you assess the learning of students in your program with regard to your stated program learning outcomes (PLOs), you won’t learn anything useful if those PLOs don’t cover the subject matter you really care about. Instead, if PLOs are too vague, too multi-pronged, or deal with either trivia or topics not really valued by your faculty, your assessment will be pointless even if you do everything “right.” In this workshop, the panelists will discuss ways in which we can develop PLOs that will help your department or program gather meaningful information that will help improve your curriculum and pedagogy.

And of course, breakfast is served!
