Assessment in Action: Demonstrating and Communication Library Contributions to Student Learning and Success


Thursday, November 1, 2018

Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center

9am - 4:30pm (registration begins at 8am)


PROGRAM DESCRIPTION


Higher education institutions of all types are facing intensified attention to assessment and accountability issues. Academic libraries are increasingly connecting with colleagues and campus stakeholders to design and implement assessment that documents their contributions to institutional priorities. In this day-long workshop on strategic and sustainable assessment, participants will identify institutional priorities and campus partners, design an assessment project grounded in action research, and prepare a plan for communicating the project results. This workshop is based on the highly successful ACRL Assessment in Action programcurriculum.


LEARNING OUTCOMES


Workshop participants will be able to...

  • Apply action research as a means to designing robust assessment plans, practices, and processes.
  • Implement assessment practices that document the impact of libraries on student learning, academic programs and activities, and institutional initiatives.
  • Collaborate with key campus partners to plan and conduct assessment that aligns library outcomes with institutional initiatives, priorities, and assessment activities.
  • Use the results of assessment and action research to foster support for library contributions to student learning and success.
