General Education and Assessment: Design Thinking for Student Learning

“General Education and Assessment: Design Thinking for Student Learning” Conference: Registration Now Open
February 23–25, 2017, Phoenix, Arizona

General education sits at the intersection of an array of demands facing higher education—demands for more intentionally scaffolded, integrated, and engaged approaches to teaching and learning; more campus-community partnerships; more mentoring and advising; more multimodal learning experiences; and, above all, more meaningful assessment of student learning across these efforts. “General Education and Assessment: Design Thinking for Student Learning” will focus on how educators throughout all sectors of higher education can address these and other issues by designing, implementing, and evaluating high-quality general education pathways that are effective for all students—especially those from traditionally underserved groups. Plenary speakers include Helen Chen of Stanford University, Lisa Grocott of Monash University, Peter Doolittle of Virginia Tech, Natasha Jankowski of the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment and the University of Illinois, and Catherine Wehlburg of Texas Christian University. Registration is now open.
