Learning, Teaching, and Assessment Forum for Graduate Students and Postdocs

Modified: September 6, 2016

On November 16, 2016, the Office of the Provost, in collaboration with the Assessment/Accreditation Council and Searle Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching, will host the fourth annual Learning, Teaching, and Assessment Forum at Norris University Center (Evanston). This year’s forum theme is “Examining the Evidence of Student Learning.” This university-wide event is designed to provide faculty, doctoral students, administrators and University community members with the opportunity to share and highlight teaching and learning assessment innovations, strategies, practices, and outcomes, and to promote dialogue about the assessment of student learning. Over the last three years, over 150 people have participated annually in the forum.

The Office of the Provost and Learning, Teaching, and Assessment Forum Committee are seeking doctoral students’ contributions from a range of disciplines and programs to share their assessment of learning initiatives. Examples of topics might include, among others, assessing learning without exams, simple but meaningful assessments, assessing learning beyond the classroom, assessing a curriculum, designing and implementing an assessment strategy, and research studies on student learning at Northwestern.

Presenters may share their assessment initiative in an interactive session or as a poster. Proposals for roundtables may also be submitted on topics of general interest related to the assessment of student learning.

For more details about the Forum and to submit a proposal, please visit the 2016 Learning, Teaching, and Assessment Forum webpage. Submissions must be received by September 16, 2016 and applicants will be notified by late September.

Please mark your calendars for November 16, 2016. If you have any questions, please contact Susanna Calkins, Director of Faculty Programs at the Searle Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching.
