"Building a Better Graduate Program - Rethinking Program Evaluation" will be the theme of the second Graduate and Professional Education Assembly on Monday, April 18.
Evaluation experts Chris Golde and George Walker, collaborators involved in the Carnegie Initiative on the Doctorate, will be the keynote speakers and facilitators for an interactive assembly. Faculty and students will work together to generate and develop ideas toward students-outcomes-based program assessment.
The Graduate and Professional Education Assembly brings together faculty, staff, and students from both graduate and professional programs across the University. It was established based on recommendations of the work group on graduate education, whose report was accepted by the Provost in May 2010. The first assembly was held in November.
In-person registration for the spring 2011 assembly is already full, but participation is encouraged by live webcast. See the event page.
