Civic Competency and Engagement: Building an Impactful Assessment Process
Wednesday, March 22, 2017 10:00:00 AM PDT - 11:00:00 AM PDT
While many institutions are seeking to develop civic competency and engagement (CCE) in their students, there are seemingly infinite permutations of learning outcomes, institutional actions, and assessment methodologies. Terms like civic engagement, civic responsibility, service learning, and community engagement (among a host of others) are used to mean varying things across institutions. Colleges and universities also employ a wide variety of programs, including civic learning courses, service learning programs, and community engagement efforts. How do we ensure alignment among these outcomes and these activities? What types of data can and should we gather to examine the effectiveness of our efforts? Perhaps most importantly, how do make sure that we use those data in order to demonstrate our effectiveness and guide continuous improvement? This session will present best practices in defining and assessing CLDE, as well as how assessment models can relate to the development of an institutional assessment plan.
