Assessment Workshop Starfruit

Iterative and Collaborative Curriculum Design and Course Alignment

Effective curriculum design is a continuous process that should be a holistic look at the entire program focusing on the learning outcomes. This workshop will focus on developing and sequencing a plan to provide learning experiences that will support the program level outcomes as well as opportunities to assess the outcomes.

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Apply the principles of alignment and evidence-based design to curriculum development
  • Utilize multiple mapping approaches to determine the exact nature of an existing curriculum in terms of learning outcomes and program goals
  • Create developmentally appropriate curriculum design
  • Develop and implement methods for identifying and involving multiple stakeholders in curriculum design

Designing Your Assessment Plan-Managing the Process (You don’t have to measure everything every year)

The assessment of the learning outcomes of a program is not a one year thing as it would be too much to try to evaluate every outcome each year. Instead, it is recommended that the assessment of outcomes be split into multiple years, so that more depth can be reached. This workshop will focus on developing the skills to create a plan and timeline that will be usable for any program.

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Explain how to assess program level outcomes throughout the curriculum
  • Create a timeline to assess program level outcomes over a pre-determined cycle
  • Design an assessment plan that would be program specific

Assessing Co-Curricular Experiences and Campus Activities

Student Affairs has been tracking student engagement and connect data from multiple sources to develop a more complete picture of co-curricular factors that contribute to student learning and development. This workshop will focus on the connection between co-curricular activities and student learning and how that may apply to other departments on campus.

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the connection between co-curricular activities and the student learning experience
  • Access and utilize select resources, tools and data that are available to help them answer their own assessment questions and inquiries
