Continuous improvement requires curiosity, an open mind, and the willingness to evolve your approach along the way. The University of Alabama’s assessment practice is built around a guiding purpose of student-centered, meaningful change. To support their mission, the team sought out a suite of tools that would not only simplify data collection and enable effective reporting, but also create space for deeper analysis and thoughtful reflection. The end result? A strong foundation of data that supports a culture of authenticity, engagement, collaboration, and accountability. You’ll learn to: - Establish strong internal assessment processes to support continuous improvement - Define meaningful goals that tie back to your institutional vision and mission - Creatively leverage multiple solutions to gather essential information and glean insights Presenters from the University of Alabama: - James Hardin, Clinical Associate Professor - Lisa Matherson, Coordinator for Continuous Improvement - Emily Sims, Academic Associate Dean - Elizabeth Wilson, Sr. Associate Dean - Diana Winchester, Instructor, EdTPA and Assessment - Akeisha Young, Director of Accreditation and Assessment This presentation is a recording from the Watermark Engage 2022 Conference.
