Are you interested in learning how you can measure success at your student programs? Join Student Affairs for a webinar and group discussion exploring exactly that.
Overview: It can be very difficult to compare event attendance at a university with 30,000 students and a university with 3,000. This session will examine how we measure success in terms of student activities (social programming) and look at methods to help programmers set goals and standards in terms of programming that align with their school. It is not just about assessment and learning outcomes, it's about setting realistic standards for staff and students who produce events.
- Better understanding of the meaningful methods used to assess student activities programs in relation to institutional size;
- Introduction to an assessment model that has proven successful at three major universities;
- Gain the tools to create and implement a similar model at their home institutions; and
- Examine the creation of learning outcomes for social programming in terms of both participants and producers of an event.
