The Student Affairs Assessment Leaders (SAAL) are thrilled to share details for the fourth run of their free MOOC, “Applying and Leading Assessment in Student Affairs.” The eight-week course is completely self-paced and starts February 24 and ends April 19. Participants can move through all of the modules to complete the course in full, or pick and choose which individual modules they are most interested in and complete only those. While the course is self-paced, the instructors will move through the content one week at a time.

The course’s curriculum provides self-paced materials that address several learning outcomes. This course aims to provide participants the opportunity to:

  • Review concepts that contribute to sound, sustainable assessment practice.
  • Explore the development of foundational assessment components including planning, articulating goals and outcomes, and providing feedback.
  • Identify strategies for guiding assessment efforts across multiple functional areas and teams.
  • Discover ways to translate data to a story of student success with a plan for action.

A pre-open course live session with the instructors will be held on February 4 at 4pm Eastern. This session will offer an introduction to those leading the class, provide an overview of the course experience, and offer an opportunity for attendees to ask questions in advance of the course start.

Webinar: RARE Model: Interpersonal Strategies for Inclusive and Collaborative Assessment Practice
Feb 26 @ 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm

In fostering a positive assessment culture on campus, assessment professionals must develop and sustain collaborative relationships with faculty and staff. Building alliances across the institution and facilitating ownership and autonomy in assessment requires a toolkit of interpersonal strategies. The presenters recently co-developed the RARE Model, a strengths-based approach to assessment practice, which emphasizes relationship-building as foundational for success (Clucas Leaderman & Polychronopoulos, 2019). In this session, the presenters will explain the RARE Model in depth, including specific strategies for inclusive practice, and discuss how these strategies may be employed intentionally with faculty and staff to promote positive assessment culture and collaboration. Assessment practitioners will benefit from learning and reflecting upon several adaptability skills that are necessary for effectively partnering with campus stakeholders to support best practices in assessment.

2020 ICCHE Conference @ Eastern Illinois University
Mar 4 – Mar 5 all-day

The theme of this year’s conference is “Equity in Continuing Higher Education”. “Universities have a long history of exclusion on the bases of race, ethnicity, sex, religion, disability, orientation and identity, but have also been at the forefront of the movement to foster diversity, equity and inclusion in society. Continuing education units exist to support those students that traditional higher education has ignored, and for this reason, our units tend to be more diverse than others on campus. As continuing educators, we often find ourselves urging our colleagues to remember that a commitment to equity must recognize age, veteran status and the need to maintain full-time employment as significant factors of a diverse student body. We are proud to serve disadvantaged student populations. In doing so, though, do we risk perpetuating inequality by segregating “types” of students from one another, thereby creating a disadvantaged learning environment for some? Or do continuing education programs provide the tools to overcome historical injustice?”
