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’sÂ 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.
