Student Affairs Assessment Leaders (SAAL) is a dynamic group of assessment leaders whose mission is to create an open and welcoming environment for educators who coordinate and/or contribute to assessment for and within divisions of student affairs to share and receive information and resources that will advance their work. Overarchingly, SAAL seeks to improve the quality of assessment practices within student affairs divisions across the country through an active network of assessment professionals, experts, and faculty, who are committed to sharing knowledge and resources, advancing critical conversations, and producing and distributing high-quality resources related to student affairs assessment. A big component of SAAL offerings includes Applying & Leading Assessment in Student Affairs, an open online course offered for free annually to all interested in assessment. Earlier this year, SAAL partnered with AEFIS to broaden the scope for assessment professional development nationwide (read more here).
In this session, Dr. Joe Levy, Executive Director of Assessment and Accreditation at National Louis University and Open Course Manager and Instructor for SAAL will provide an overview of the impact the open-online course has had on learners and some insights into the next course offering plus some interesting new opportunities to enlist the Community of AEFIS Academy in sessions, case studies and blogs aligned to course outlines for the 2022 administration of the course.
