As opportunities for educational innovation and technology evolve, how can we be sure that student learning is improving and truly transformed? Are the learning experiences we create aligned with the program outcomes and broader degree level expectations that we desire in our students? How do we develop and implement program plans to assess student learning and continually enhance student experiences?    

This session will provide participants with an assessment planning framework that outlines a process for (a) ensuring that courses and learning activities are aligned with broader course, program, institutional or provincial learning outcomes, (b) selecting, implementing and analyzing the results of assessment methods to determine the extent of student learning or achievement of outcomes, and (c) using this information to enhance teaching and learning within the program.

During this hands-on workshop, participants will be introduced to the assessment planning framework, and apply the concepts to generic case scenarios in a variety of disciplines.  The workshop will cover how to use both direct and indirect measures as part of the program assessment process.  Opportunities will also be provided for participants to consider how these concepts can be applied within their own program.

This workshop is based on the “Program Review and Enhancement Guidebook” that was developed at McMaster University as part of the Paul R MacPherson Fellowship in 2013. The guidebook includes background information on developing and implementing program assessment plans, templates for application of concepts within the participants’ discipline, and a variety of resources for each topic covered. All participants will be provided with a copy of the guidebook.
