Getting to “Why?”: Helping Faculty Understand the Value of Outcomes Reporting

Purdue University had an ambitious goal: centralize multi-location course and program outcome reporting, while helping faculty set and reach goals for learning innovation.

They implemented Watermark Planning & Self-Study and Faculty Success (formerly Digital Measures) to accomplish these complex goals. You’ll hear how it all turned out! . Attendees will walk away with a greater appreciation for the complexity of recording learning outcomes and the time investment required for faculty to report on goals and outcomes. Purdue will also share, how to create reporting efficiencies with Planning & Self-Study and Digital Measures, ways to use these tools to support faculty growth and course development.

Purdue will share
- Best practices illustrating the importance of objectives to faculty
- How they made streamlined reporting to drive efficiencies
- How the tools help them support faculty growth and course development

  • Using Learning Outcomes to Determine Essential Content Recorded: Oct 13 2021 45 mins
    Kathy Telban, Chief Executive Manager, The Learning Organization
    One of the major concerns regarding outcome-based curriculum design models is that subject-focused content is somewhat lost. Curriculum design isn’t just a process of deciding what topics to cover. It’s a process of deciding what essential content learners must understand and master in order to achieve the intended learning outcomes. In fact, analyzing the intended learning outcomes to determine the essential content is one of the important marks of a strong curriculum and supports deeper learning. It should answer the question: What concepts, skills and issues are essential for the learners to achieve the intended learning outcomes?

    This webinar will provide a framework and process to identify, delimit, and align essential content with learning outcomes which will cause deeper learning and save time.

    Join Kathy Telban of the Learning Organization for this exciting discussion!

    Kathy Telban is an expert in outcome-based curriculum development. She served as the Director of Curriculum and Assessment at Cuyahoga Community College and currently is the Chief Executive Manager of The Learning Organization which is committed to helping college. and workplace educators create and improve a learning outcome and assessment system through leadership, instructor involvement, professional development, and system integration.

  • Comparing Data Across Programs: CAEP Advanced Program Reports Recorded: Sep 22 2021 32 mins
    Amy Kline, Associate Dean, Seton Hall University Elizabeth Winter, Seton Hall University
    Preparing for a CAEP Advanced Program Report takes planning, especially the first time. Seton Hall’s College of Education and Human Services had an additional challenge: six different programs, each with its own advanced accreditation requirements.
    They first wondered how -- or if -- they could compare and assess six unique programs. They turned to Student Learning & Licensure (formerly Via) to organize, streamline, and report on these varied outcomes and standards.

    They anchor their assessments in CAEP Advanced Standard A.1, and created a committee across their six programs to help them align against CAEP standards and winnow down to key aspects of their specific programs. They use Student Learning & Licensure (formerly Via) to aggregate and disaggregate data across very different programs that were all facing their first CAEP accreditation.

    You’ll learn how Seton Hall University’s College of Education and Human Services:
    - Collaborates across multiple programs to effectively manage specific assessments
    - Use rubric reporting to show outcomes at a variety of levels and standards reporting for each assessment program
    - How the accreditation process inspires them to use their assessment data to improve learning outcomes
