Examining & Affirming Excellent Assessment Practice at HBCUs Post-Pandemic
August 11, 2021
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—does just that. Panelists reflect on the lessons learned over the past year and how they may continue to influence teaching, learning, and assessment at HBCUs. The webinar highlights approaches to assessment that have and should continue to support students in their lives and their learning at HBCUs and beyond.
This is the first in a five-part series of webinars exploring assessment practices at Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
