Getting Started with Learning Outcomes Assessment: Purposes, Practical Options, and Impact

Getting Started with Learning Outcomes Assessment: Purposes, Practical Options, and Impact

Slides from Megan Oakleaf’s workshop at the 2010 Library Assessment Conference http://libraryassessment.org/bm~doc/oakleaf_megan_workshop.pdf

Leader: Megan Oakleaf (iSchool, Syracuse University)

Tasked with assessing information literacy on your campus? Confused about your options? Dissatisfied with assessments you’ve already attempted? Intended for librarians considering, commencing, or retooling a plan for assessing student learning outcomes, this full-day workshop will include mini-lectures, discussion, and hands-on, scenario-based activities to engage participants in answering three questions:

  1. What is the purpose of learning outcomes assessment in my library?
  2. What assessment tools can I use? What are the strengths and limitations of each? How do I choose the right one for my campus?
  3. How will my choices impact teaching and learning? How will I “close the loop”?
  4. How might I use learning outcomes assessment to highlight the value of my library to my overarching institution?
