Deb Helsing

We invite proposals that focus on the current and potential future impact of learning assessment on learning and change in higher education, and the implications for our current and future work. We will delve into research, best practice, and emerging trends in assessment of learning at four levels of impact:

On the Ground – learning and change in courses, activities, and experiences

In Programs – learning and change in majors, fields, disciplines, initiatives, and projects

In Institutions – learning and change in use of evidence, in decision-making practices, in self-study, and
in evaluation of effectiveness

In the Enterprise of Higher Learning – in the educational mission, in guiding principles and expectations, in common practice, and in accreditation
