    Mantras for Success when Preparing a Fifth-Year Interim Report

    for NECHE

    March 10, 2021

    10AM - 12:30PM ET

    Via Zoom

    This workshop adopts a hands on approach to developing the 5th year Interim report for NECHE. This workshop is different from the one offered by NECHE in that it takes an on the ground, logistical and strategic approach to get the report completed. The workshop will deconstruct each section of the report and provide you with tools for planning and organizing content and offer “mantras” to aid your success in each section of the report. You will also be exposed to well-constructed examples of reports that can guides your own report writing.

    This workshop is best suited for campus teams that will work on the Fifth-year report, so bring a team. It is also suited for faculty and administrators who will Chair their campus report writing teams and for individual faculty who are section writers or editors. This workshop is particularly useful for new CAOS, Institutional Research, Institutional Effectiveness and Institutional Assessment professionals interested in the accreditation process and completing the data first and e-series forms.

    2021 NEean Dialogues in the Disciplines

    March 26, 2021

    via Zoom

    Assessing Experiential Learning:

    Now and When

    Join us for a day-long symposium focused on assessment and experiential learning, viewed through the lens of the current challenges presented by the pandemic and focused on identifying the future opportunities for when things return to normal. 

    We will explore the following essential questions: 

    How do we best leverage assessment evidence from Ex. Ed., regardless of model,

    to assess student learning and inform continuous improvement at the

    course, program, and institutional level? 

    What have we learned from the current pandemic and

    how can it inform our efforts to assess the experiential in the future?

    Keynote Address by Donna Qualters, PhD.

    Unintentional Consequences: 

    The Case for Assessing Learning in Experiential Education

    Experiential Education is a powerful model of educating students in authentic situations to apply classroom learning in the real world.  However, without a solid way of assessing, we often do not really know what connections between theory and practice are occurring nor how students apply or interpret their learning. As educators our goal is not only to assess but to help students develop the skill to continue to assess themselves after they leave the academy. Together we will explore the characteristics of authentic experiential education, look at the ways we can measure success of our offering, but more importantly explore how to promote and measure the effect of experience for student learning in the classroom and off campus sites.
