Learn about best practices and winning assessment strategies from our expert users and VIPs—Very Important Partners! Get a chance to have thought leadership discussions with these amazing colleagues and exchange battle stories from the field.
This particular event will focus on Agile wayfinding and its purpose in institutional planning and assessment processes. University of Maryland Global Campus has a long history of evaluating innovation and using results to guide the next steps. More recently, assessment of student learning has been added to an academic planning process that includes program review, academic scorecards, and external data on labor and competitive markets. This integrated planning process provides faculty and administrators with a comprehensive view of an academic program. Learn how you can apply this approach at your institution.
It is our goal to provide the audience with the following intended key takeaways:
1. Learn the six steps of the agile wayfinding process for planning and innovation.
2. Discover how the agile wayfinding process has been implemented at the University of Maryland Global Campus.
3. Determine how to use the agile wayfinding process in your own institution.
