Professional learning in higher education is a precious commodity given shrinking budgets and changes to the higher-ed landscape. To support assessment development efforts, AEFIS and Student Affairs Assessment Leaders (SAAL) are partnering to broaden the scope for assessment professional development nationwide. Together, they’re expanding SAAL’s “Applying & Leading Assessment in Student Affairs” course and resources to AEFIS Academy – an open online community dedicated to professional learning and networking in assessment, strategic planning, and best practices for teaching and learning. Learn how AEFIS and SAAL collaboration will support those leading assessment activities, and keep higher education leaders current in their work.
It is our goal to provide the audience with the following intended key takeaways:
1. Identify how community-driven programming can add value to student affairs practitioners who are leading assessment efforts at their institution.
2. Identify the value of partnership to expand professional learning experiences for your stakeholders in student affairs assessment
3. Create a plan to adopt sustainable processes to support student affairs assessment year-round
