Assessing the effects of curricular technology on student learning in the context of a rapidly changing academic and technological landscape is recognized as a challenge at many liberal arts colleges. In this track, participants will get an introduction to the national conversation of assessment in higher education and explore the intersection of assessment and technology on the liberal arts campus. Participants in the community meeting will share best practices and lay the groundwork for assessment collaboration in the NITLE network. Proposed collaborative projects include the creation of a resource bank of case studies and survey questions to further this work in the liberal arts environment.
This track has two events and may be combined with other workshops to take advantage of registration packages at discounted prices. The Camp 2010 Keynote address will also complement the Assessment track.
