2021 NEean Dialogues in the Disciplines

March 26, 2021

via Zoom

Assessing Experiential Learning:

Now and When

Join us for a day-long symposium focused on assessment and experiential learning, viewed through the lens of the current challenges presented by the pandemic and focused on identifying the future opportunities for when things return to normal. 

We will explore the following essential questions: 

How do we best leverage assessment evidence from Ex. Ed., regardless of model,

to assess student learning and inform continuous improvement at the

course, program, and institutional level? 

What have we learned from the current pandemic and

how can it inform our efforts to assess the experiential in the future?

Keynote Address by Donna Qualters, PhD.

Unintentional Consequences: 

The Case for Assessing Learning in Experiential Education

Experiential Education is a powerful model of educating students in authentic situations to apply classroom learning in the real world.  However, without a solid way of assessing, we often do not really know what connections between theory and practice are occurring nor how students apply or interpret their learning. As educators our goal is not only to assess but to help students develop the skill to continue to assess themselves after they leave the academy. Together we will explore the characteristics of authentic experiential education, look at the ways we can measure success of our offering, but more importantly explore how to promote and measure the effect of experience for student learning in the classroom and off campus sites.
