Topic: Strategic Planning For Student Learning
This session will describe an institutional approach to linking the evidence of student learning assessment to program review, curricular improvement, strategic planning, academic prioritization, and budgeting. We will discuss how to make the evidence of student learning foundational to institutional decision-making.
With shrinking budgets and increased demands for accountability, how do institutions plan, organize, and act to meet the needs of individual students today and the needs of society tomorrow? Should planning start with strategic planning, prioritization of academic and administrative programs or concurrent? What are the implications to program assessment and review? The purpose of this session is to engage participants in this so far inconclusive but critical issue towards a shared process.
