Preregistration open for the Institute for Student Learning and Assessment

By Frederick Burrack

Institute for Student Learning and Assessment

Please preregister for the fall 2012 Institute for Student Learning and Assessment: High-Impact Instructional Practices and Assessment from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, on the second floor of the K-State Student Union.

The institute is designed to develop intentional and integrative strategies that strengthen student learning and exhibit student achievement. It will feature a keynote address by Ann Ferren, senior scholar with the Association of American Colleges and Universities, on "Investing in Quality." The institute curriculum emphasizes high-impact practices — research-supported active learning practices — and campuswide strategies that are engaging to students and effective at improving achievement of learning outcomes.

The institute is open to all K-State faculty, staff, administrators and students, as well as representatives from other Kansas higher education institutions. There is no cost for participating and the institute includes a lunch buffet provided by the provost.

Please submit names and email addresses of those wishing to attend to the office of assessment at assessment@k-state.edu no later than Monday, Oct. 22. The institute is open to the first 150 who preregister. For more information see a condensed Institute Program or the Institute Flyer.
