PLENARY: How to hit a moving target: assessing engaged learning

Presenter: Ashley Finley, Senior Director of Assessment and Research – Association of American Colleges and Universities (AACU), National Evaluator – Bringing Theory to Practice

Campuses are increasingly realizing the need to expand traditional notions of teaching and learning in order to meet the demands of higher education in the 21st century.  It is a time to think inclusively about student success, challenge paradigms that govern institutional structures, re-examine the skills necessary for today’s workforce, and consider the utility of our technology rich environments.  It is a time, in short, to develop assessments that enable better, more meaningful narratives about 21st century learning in higher education.  This interactive plenary will guide participants through campus-based examples of how educators are using e-portfolio and Web 2.0 tools (e.g., social media and constructivist digital tools) to shape and inspire student learning across complex and often non-traditional settings.  Additionally, the role of intentional reflective practices and the application of student-centered rubrics will be examined as essential components for capturing students’ experiences and measuring learning gains.
