AALHE 2020 Online Conference

AEFIS Active Learning Lab or ALL workshop series is participant-driven, hands-on experience for users who want to learn how to more efficiently implement assessment processes and solutions on their campuses using AEFIS. ALL offers all-inclusive sessions on selected topics where attendees can learn and build solutions specific to their institution or program via a backward-design approach. Using the Edcamp Model “unconference” delivery, this active learning experience focuses on what partners need to know and want to put into action on their campuses tomorrow.
This particular lab unpacks the powerful workflow feature within AEFIS, which can be leveraged to enhance a collaborative experience that includes stakeholders across your campus system. The real-time assessment project management solution enables leaders to create deliberative workflows to engage key stakeholders in self-study reporting, strategic planning tasks, and program assessment. Attendees create an end to end plan of how workflow can be implemented at their institution based on use cases provided by AEFIS partners. Takeaways include components of research centered on psychological safety, instructional leadership, and a design framework for how this solution can be phased into the assessment process on your campus.
