Annual Conference
Assessment & Its Audience:
Sharing our Stories with Stakeholders
Featuring Inside Higher Ed Founder Scott Jaschik and the  Director of the University of Georgia Center for Teaching & Learning, Edward Watson
  The 2014 Conference, Assessment and Its Audiences: Sharing our Stories with Stakeholders will focus on:
  • Identifying best practices for communicating with multiple assessment stakeholders, from faculty and campus leaders, to parents, policy makers, and the students themselves,
  • Research-based practices for getting usable data into the hands of those who need it, and
  • Promoting the dissemination of assessment results in both the popular and scholarly press.
With pre-conference workshops, an evening poster session and reception, and new concurrent sessions that include Pecha Kucha presentations, the conference promises to be engaging and dynamic. As always, the tone and tenor of the event will be collegial, as colleagues from within and beyond the Commonwealth of Virginia network, share, and collaborate.
