Session Format


Can we meaningfully assess educational development impact, yet avoid the time-intensive, challenging task of providing proof of improved student learning? Join us to develop a meaningful, usable assessment plan for your local educational development activities based on a new, comprehensive framework. We will address event, participation, and satisfaction data; build to evidence of faculty learning including intent to change and outcomes produced; and culminate with value we provide in creating a scholarly teaching community welcoming all voices. You will leave with an outline for a focused assessment plan specific to your context and feedback from colleagues about your plan.
