BPACE : Assessing Student Learning Outcomes
Registration opens October 10, 2019
With the help of facilitators and mentors, participants will develop and implement an assessment plan or project that targets students’ civic learning and development (e.g., working with others, civic communication, civic identity, civic literacy or knowledge). Participating in BPACE is beneficial to individuals and institutions seeking guidance in implementing, maintaining, strengthening, or expanding their current assessment plans to include a civic dimension.
This is a 100% online learning experience hosted through the learning management platform Canvas, with synchronous, online meetings being held via Zoom. No travel or in-person meetings are expected as part of your enrollment in the SLO track of BPACE.
WHO SHOULD ENROLL?
Individuals in faculty or staff roles who are responsible for or oversee a course or program that involves students in a highly engaged learning practice (service-learning, experiential learning, internship, capstone project, undergraduate mentored research, learning community, etc.). Participants are expected to come with a specific curriculum, project, learning experience, or course in mind.
BENEFITS TO ATTENDEES
After completing the SLO track of BPACE attendees can expect to:
List and compare a variety of civic outcomes and how they apply to your course, program, curriculum, discipline, etc.
Identify appropriate assessment tools that align with the intended outcome and evaluate tools for applicability.
Practice applying assessment tools (direct or indirect) to student artifacts in order to measure civic learning and development.
Design a comprehensive, coherent, and transparent teaching and learning experience that enhances students’ civic learning and development.
