From Faculty Focus
Do the decision makers at your university understand what your teaching and learning center contributes to the overall value of the institution?
In today’s era of constant change and increasingly strict higher education budgets, it is no longer enough to run high-quality, successful faculty development programs and centers; you must be able to effectively communicate the value of these successful programs to others, in coherent terms and with empirical data.
With this in mind, outcomes-based assessments are more than just a useful tool to have in your toolbox. The future of your faculty development and academic centers may depend on it.
Outcomes-Based Assessment of Teaching & Learning Centers, a new Magna Online Seminar led by Bruce Kelley, Ph.D., director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at the University of South Dakota, will give you a reliable framework for measuring tangible outcomes for your center. This seminar will also give you the skills and results to communicate these outcomes clearly to others in a language that is easy for everyone, especially those outside your department, to understand.
Join us October 21st to learn how to:
- Critically evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of different types of data
- Leverage outcomes-based data to communicate the effectiveness and value of your teaching & learning centers
- Design and evaluate outcomes-based objectives
Traditionally, academic support centers don’t operate under financial models that allow them to prove that they are cost-effective. It is therefore important that you be able to measure and communicate the value of what your center does.
Get the tools and the resources you need to accurately and persuasively communicate the value of the institutions and programs you lead through accurate data collection and outcomes-based assessments.
