In times of declining enrollment it is more important than ever to ensure a steady stream of incoming students from local area high schools.

Setting Our Own Targets:  A Critical Look at Outcomes Assessment

Presenter

Toño Ramirez

Location

Advanced Technology Center - AT 311

Description

In a bit of pedagogical synchronicity, the New York Times has recently run an op-ed piece articulating deep criticisms of learning outcomes assessment at institutions of higher learning in the same week that we offer our annual Convocation. This piece, alongside the response letters it has generated, provides us with an outstanding vehicle for considering our own SLO/SSLO processes. In this workshop, Toño Ramirez (philosophy instructor and SLO coordinator) will facilitate a conversation about the aims and legitimacy of learning outcomes assessment at De Anza. Our process is primarily driven by the faculty and staff members who most directly serve our students, and this discussion will aim to inform and shape its future. Attendees are encouraged to read the NYT pieces in advance of our meeting!
