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 the importance of managing your limited time and provide a forum to discuss how to say no, set boundaries, and managing expectations for colleagues, partners, and other institutional constituents.
It is our goal to provide the audience with the following intended key takeaways:
1. Discuss some of the common pitfalls faced by assessment practitioners who are managing multiple projects
2. Develop strategies for delegating tasks and engaging other institutional collaborators in important initiatives
3. Identify ways to change how you are working now to enable more stakeholder accountability and efficiency in the day to day workload
Dr. Mike Rudolph, Director of Institutional Effectiveness, University of Kentucky
I am an experienced higher education administrator with a passion for asking questions and using data and research to guide improvement. I work closely with faculty, staff, and administrators to develop and fine-tune institutional effectiveness systems, including assessment of student learning outcomes, general education, and program review. One of the most rewarding aspects of my current role is the opportunity to serve as a campus "consultant" by providing guidance and resources to program directors and unit leads, and empowering them to conduct meaningful assessment of their programs.
