On October 30, AAC&U will host a webinar discussion on “The Emerging Landscape of Learning: A Review of Five Years of AAC&U’s VALUE Initiative.” Free for AAC&U members, this webinar will showcase results generated by the national—now multinational—Valid Assessment of Learning in Undergraduate Education (VALUE) initiative, and presenters will help participants think through its methodological, pedagogical, and practical implications.
Register now for the VALUE Institute, higher education's leading source for direct evidence of student learning. The VALUE Institute provides institutions, departments, programs, states, consortia, and other providers with external validation of institutional assessment of learning outcomes.
Through a grant from The Endeavor Foundation, AAC&U will sponsor two regional institutes for faculty teams seeking to embed civic learning across the structure, concepts, and pedagogies of undergraduate majors. The first institute will be held on January 31, 2020, in Los Angeles, and the second on March 6, 2020, in Washington, DC.
AAC&U has extended the deadline to submit poster proposals to November 15 for the 2020 General Education, Pedagogy, and Assessment Conference, “Reflection and Meaning-Making in Turbulent Times.” Session presenters will share their efforts to create intentional and integrated general education programs, to assess current practices, and to generate evidence of high-quality learning for all students. The conference will be held February 20–22 in Jacksonville, Florida.
On October 22, AAC&U’s Tia Brown McNair will moderate a webinar discussion with four case studies on “Strategies for Supporting Faculty Planning to Advance Curricular Coherence." Free for all who wish to participate, this webinar will feature ambitious curricular change efforts to increase intentionality and reduce time to degree at the four institutions participating in AAC&U’s Purposeful Pathways project.
