The Future of General Education

Speaker Dr. Jeff Pietruszynski, Coordinator of General Education

As we think about what a graduating student from State should know, we can begin to open a dialogue on what a general education curriculum should look like in the 21st Century and beyond.   In this session, Dr. Pietruszynski will discuss how the GE program here at WVSU compares with state and national curriculum and then open the floor for ideas, concerns, and discussions of our current General Education Curriculum.  
 

Creating a Culture of Assessment

Speaker: TBA

What does it mean to adopt a “Culture of Assessment” on campus?  How does assessment differ from evaluation?  As we work to show how and why what we do in the classroom is effective, how can an assessment plan help us?  will begin a discussion on how assessment can work for you in your classroom as well as within the department, college, and university.  This session is not a training session for our current assessment, but, instead, a practical look at how to gather and use assessment data.
