AAC&U's Institute on General Education and Assessment: Applications Due February 17

Institute on General Education and Assessment
June 2-6, 2012
The Hotel at Turf Valley
Ellicott City, MD
Apply through February 17, 2012

AAC&U's Institute on General Education and Assessment provides campus teams of faculty and administrators with opportunities to refine and substantially advance campus projects on general education and its assessment. The Institute facilitates the building of a campus learning culture based upon clear goals, intentional curricula and cocurricula, powerful instruction, and assessments to improve learning. Participants will explore general education models; processes for redesigning general education courses, programs, and requirements; and successful implementation strategies. All accredited two-year and four-year institutions are encouraged to apply.

Drawing from what is learned over the course of the Institute, each team will develop an action plan for continuing the team’s work upon return to the campus. Action plans address strategies for next steps, relevant stakeholders to engage, and a timeline for achieving goals. Action plans are shared in small groups at the end of the Institute with two other campus teams and an Institute faculty member.
