Data, Decision-Making, and Continuous Improvement
Join a cohort of your peers in two live lessons facilitated by globally recognized assurance of learning (AoL) experts. Build skills and network in interactive, workshop-style lessons focused on examining innovative approaches to measuring, reporting, and closing the loop in your assessment program. Learn how to interpret your collected AoL data to improve student learning through group interactions, breakout sessions, and spaced learning in a virtual environment.
Focusing on AACSB's 2013 accreditation standards, the seminar will provide AoL plan and dataset examples, explore curriculum and course mapping, and share AACSB accreditation committee expectations.
Participants will be required to bring their school’s AoL plan, data, and/or visualizations as part of the interactive conversations in this seminar. Discuss and discern the importance of data visualizations to aide stakeholder buy-in and support while telling your school’s story through the lens of its mission.
This seminar is based on the 2013 Business Accreditation Standards. Assurance of Learning seminars based on the 2020 Business Accreditation Standards will be offered in September 2020.
