2014 UAA Academic Assessment Seminar
On September 12, 2014, the Office of Undergraduate Affairs, in partnership with the Academic Assessment Committee (AAC), and the General Education Requirement Assessment Task Force (GERA), hosted the second annual Academic Assessment Seminar at UAA. Keynote speaker and Senior Scholar at the Higher Learning Commission, Dr. Susan Hatfield, spoke about building a culture focused on student learning and achievement. As a follow up to the dynamic interactions of the more than eighty faculty and staff participants, Dr. Hatfield complimented UAA's efforts, stating that UAA is "so clearly, if not all the way there, well on the journey," to a culture of learning.
The morning session provided an opportunity for faculty and staff to discuss ways in which each individual program contributes to general education and how programs can contribute to an institutional-level assessment process.
In the afternoon, two UAA programs showcased lessons learned in evidenced-based program improvement, looking at the Master of Arts in Anthropology and the Bachelor of Business Administration Thanks to Dr. Paul White and Professor Kathleen Voge for their excellent presentations.
