​Measuring matters: Assessing learning outcomes in higher education
Webinar Series 1

In colleges and universities around the world, learning outcomes are quickly becoming the markers of high-quality, accountable and flexible postsecondary education. These clear, concise statements of what students should know and be able to do by the end of a course or program are quickly becoming the norm. But learning outcomes are only meaningful if they are measurable, so how do we measure whether our students have gained the skills and knowledge we set out to teach them? How do we implement assessment tools and programs in our postsecondary institutions and how can the results be used to improve our students' experiences?  How do we foster an assessment culture among all faculty, students and leadership? How do we determine which assessment tools best capture certain skills and at what point within a course or program do we administer the assessment? This webinar series, Measuring matters: Assessing learning outcomes in higher education, tackles these questions and more. Featuring researchers from HEQCO's Learning Outcomes Assessment Consortium, as well as guest experts, this interactive webinar series features evidence-based best practices for developing effective outcomes assessment programs at your institution.​

   

The challenges of assessing learning outcomes in higher education
Webinar Series 2

​A focus on learning outcomes has the potential to modernize teaching and learning across the province. But learning outcomes are only meaningful if they are measurable and this is no simple task. Creating a positive culture of assessment among faculty, assessing what students learn outside of the classroom and measuring students' ability to think critically are three challenges in learning outcomes assessment. HEQCO's second and all-new webinar series, The challenges of assessing learning outcomes in higher education, tackles these challenges and provides you with some creative solutions. Featuring researchers from HEQCO's Learning Outcomes Assessment Consortium, as well as guest experts, this interactive webinar series features evidence-based best practices for developing effective outcomes assessment programs at your institution.​
