CTL Workshops

The Effective Program Assessment track is designed for individual or groups of faculty who are involved in the Program Assessment Report (PAR) process in their department. Topics for these sessions are drawn from the components of the PAR rubric and include examples of how Boise State faculty approach the assessment of student learning across their degree program. During the one-hour session, participants will learn about successful strategies for program assessment and have the opportunity to talk with colleagues about how to apply the ideas shared.

Student Learning Institute – SAVE the DATE!

May 9th, 9 AM – 4PM, and May 10th, 9 AM – 12 PM

The inaugural Student Learning Institute provides time, space and resources for groups of faculty and staff involved in program assessment to investigate one or more aspects of student learning in their program. Over the course of one and a half days, program teams of 2-4 people will pose questions about student learning in their own programs, explore assessment approaches used by other programs at Boise State, and develop an action plan to answer their questions.
