Please join us for the August 2014 Islander Forum from Tuesday, August 19 through Thursday, August 21 in the PAC and UC Ballroom. This fall the forum will showcase presentations and active discussions about High Impact Practices (HIP) for student success.
The Islander Forum is a campus-wide opportunity to focus on critical issues in higher education at the beginning of each semester.
This Fall's featured keynote speaker will be Ashley Finley. Ashley Finley is the senior director of assessment and research at AAC&U and national evaluator for the Bringing Theory to Practice (BTtoP) Project. Finley’s national work, at both the campus and national levels, focuses on developing best practices regarding program implementation, instrumentation, and mixed methods assessment. Her work combines assisting campuses with the implementation of assessment protocols and the promotion of best practices across the institution, including general education, academic departments, and the co-curriculum. She is the author of Making Progress: What We Know the Achievement of Liberal Education Outcomes, and Using the VALUE Rubrics for Improvement of Learning and Authentic Assessment, with Terrel Rhodes, and many other articles and book chapters on assessment and student learning.
