Keynote Speakers

The Assessment Conference staff has been able to secure world class speakers to discuss contemporary issues in assessment, accreditation and also higher education in general.  These speakers have delivered relevant content in one hour blocks bringing thought provoking depth that may not be obtained in a concurrent session. Collectively, they bring to the table a myriad of corporate and academic experiences, numerous books and publications, patents awarded, and a wealth of speaking engagements before assorted constituencies. We will be treated to perspectives on the revolution in higher education, on reclaiming academic quality in the context of assessment and accreditation, understanding complex problems from multiple viewpoints, and of course, the opportunity to question their positions and forecasts.
