How can we expect faculty to engage in assessment if they’re not included throughout the process? In this session, I’ll share how we approach this question at William Woods University by walking through the three assessment workshops we conduct throughout the academic year. These workshops enable faculty to understand the goal of assessment and how it fits with what they’re teaching. Faculty see the student learning outcomes several times throughout the year, which helps keep the idea of assessment more current. WWU provides tremendous support to the assessment process which has paid off in reporting, faculty buy-in, and recent HLC reaffirmation where the University was commended on the culture of assessment that was evident on campus. Join us for this session to hear the details of how we created that culture of assessment.
