UW Assessment Academy: Assessment for Student Learning


It was our pleasure to host the UW Assessment Academy on March 3, 2022. Over 35 colleagues participated in the Assessment Academy and attended a variety of sessions throughout the day related to the great work of assessment for student learning happening at UW. 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.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to our colleagues at UW for your continued work and support of assessment for student learning.

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) at UW




"SoTL (The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning) is systematically investigating questions related to students learning....with an eye not only to improving one's own classroom but advancing practice beyond it" (Hutchings and Shulman, 1999). 

We invite our colleagues at the University of Wyoming to join our SoTL community.  During Fall Semester 2021 we will host workshops, a book club, kick-off a new SoTL Cohort, and celebrate the great SoTL work that has been happening at UW.  For more information, please click here to visit our SoTL page.
