Assessment Learning Community

Let's take some time to talk about assessment! Join the Assessment Faculty Learning Community for engaging conversations and to think with your peers about assessment for student learning at UW. 

We invite you to form teams of 2-4 people who are within your department, division, or program and join this assessment faculty learning community together. This opportunity is open to anyone on campus interested in assessment. Special Note - this learning community is for the Academic Year 2022/2023 (Fall & Spring Semesters).

Teams will utilize two texts (Degrees That Matter: Moving Higher Education to a Learning Systems Paradigm and Meaningful and Manageable Program Assessment: A How-To Guide for Higher Education Faculty) and connect with UW Assessment Coordinators throughout this experience. Expected outcomes include: develop a program assessment plan, establish or revise rubrics, create curriculum maps, and build a culture of assessment. 

Fall Semester Dates: September 21, October 12, October 26, November 9, November 30

Please note this is a year-long learning community.

Time: 1:30-3:00 p.m. (MST)

It was our pleasure to host the UW Assessment Academy on March 3, 2022.

We were honored to highlight work from our colleagues in Academic Affairs, Ellbogen Center for Teaching and Learning, College of Engineering and Applied Science, Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources, College of Education, LAMP, College of Arts & Sciences, and the College of Health Sciences.
