Examining & Affirming Excellent Assessment Practice at HBCUs Post-Pandemic

August 11, 2021
Online, 3:00–4:00 p.m., ET



Beginning with campus closures in spring 2020 through today, COVID-19 disrupted higher education like nothing else in modern memory. It will likely take years to assess and understand fully the effects of all this. As we emerge from our collective state of emergency, we have a unique opportunity to reflect on our work—determining not only what changes in praxis implemented during the pandemic should continue, but also ensuring excellent past practices are highlighted and affirmed moving forward. This webinar—the first in a series of five highlighting assessment work at HBCUs—will do just that. Panelists will reflect on the lessons learned over the past year and how they may continue to influence teaching, learning, and assessment at HBCUs. The webinar will highlight approaches to assessment that have and should continue to  support students in their lives and their learning at HBCUs and beyond.
