  • Academic Dishonesty-The Assault on Personal Integrity

    This article has as its focus the Commission’s need to verify, in AY 2016-2017, Drexel’s compliance in the area of student identity verification in distance and correspondence education. It is understood that Drexel’s adherence to this requirement will be reviewed as part of the self-study or periodic review process, especially as it relates to the MSCHE Standards. It is further noted that as additional guidance is received by MSCHE from the U.S. Department of Education, this guideline may be modified.
  • Combining Simulation and Reflection

    Drexel University is a school that prides itself on experiential education, so what better way to showcase this unique dimension than to utilize a simulation where students run a business making critical decisions that will either result in success or failure?  Using an engaging total enterprise simulation from Capsim (http://www.capsim.com/), our students are benefitting from just such an experience. Jim Caruso is now facilitating this approach, by leveraging years of experience running similar simulations and integrating content for businesses in many different industries.    The students learn how a business works, how all functions are interrelated and how decisions impact results.
  • Shining a Spotlight on Quality

    On September 7-9, Drexel University hosted the 3rd annual Conference on Assessment of Teaching and Student Learning entitled “Academic Quality: Driving Assessment and Accreditation.” The purpose of the conference is to bring together individuals who are interested in the study of teaching and learning in order to share ideas and programs.  The sharing of ideas between institutions enriches all and strengthens higher education overall.  Over 420 attendees, including assessment professionals, provosts, faculty and sponsors, from 146 different institutions attended the event on campus.  The robust program contained six pre-conference workshops, three plenaries and eight concurrent session blocks.  Overall there were a total of 70 presentations from 165 panelists and presenters representing 50 different institutions from 28 states and also from 5 countries outside the United States (Israel, Pakistan, Canada, Andorra and Morocco).
