Too often institutions invest in the assessment of student learning with too little return on investment in relation to learning improvement. While improvement of learning has become a greater focus of the assessment process, key stakeholders such as students do not have a seat at the table. The purpose of this workshop is to assist participants in engaging students in the assessment process so as to enhance learning improvement efforts. Participants will learn how to recruit students as well as engage students in a way that brings new insights into students’ educational experience and elevates their voice in the learning improvement process. Participants will develop strategies for partnering with students to reduce resistance to assessment among other key stakeholders (e.g. faculty and administrators).
