Ad Hoc Accreditation Visit:  Faculty open forum 10/14, 12:30 – 1:00pm

You are invited to take part in an open forum about learning outcomes assessment on October 14, 2022, from 12:30 – 1:00pm in the Board Room (1010M) or by Zoom:

The session is part of the full-day ad hoc accreditation visit from two evaluators from the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU), Shoreline’s accrediting agency. The purpose of the visit is to review Shoreline’s progress on two recommendations from the Fall 2020 comprehensive evaluation.

One of these recommendations is as follows:

Engage in assessment practices that focus on systematic and ongoing assessment of course learning outcomes that lead to program learning outcomes in general education, all instructional and student support areas. Assessments must be used to improve student learning outcomes and inform academic and learning support-planning and practices. (2020 Standard(s) 1.C.5;1.C.6;1.C.7)

The evaluator wants to gauge broad awareness and understanding of learning outcomes assessment, so has requested to meet with faculty who are not directly and recently involved in outcomes assessment currently or who might have been involved partially or in the past. Many of you have received invitations to take part in an interview session earlier in the day, and some of you will receive a specific Outlook invitation for the 12:30pm open forum. All faculty are welcome to attend and respond to questions relevant to this recommendation.
