Outcomes, Assessments, and More from Dr. Robert Mundhenk
Last year Blackboard
announced Project Caliper, a major research and development initiative to create a product to help academic institutions plan and manage educational outcomes. (And it's what I spent a good chunk of 2005 working on!) Because the field of outcomes assessment is going to be a continuing focus for Blackboard, we want to provide opportunities for you to learn about it at the upcoming Bb World '06 conference.That's why I'm pleased that, as part of Bb World '06, Blackboard is providing a series of sponsored workshops on assessment led by Dr. Robert Mundhenk, a leading expert in the field of assessment.Dr. Mundhenk is the former Director of Assessment and Senior Scholar at the American Association of Higher Education.He also spent many years working at Fordham University as an English professor and at Northhampton Community College as an English professor and a dean, director of assessment and vice president for academic affairs.
workshop, Dr. Mundhenk's
will present an overview of strategies higher education institutions can use to assess and document student learning for the purposes of improving instruction, facilitating learning, and measuring students' progress toward institutional and program goals.
