What’s my Line? Roles, Opportunities, and the Evolving Field of Higher Education Assessment

As the Virginia Assessment Group celebrates 30 years of promoting quality higher education through assessment and institutional effectiveness practices, we find ourselves reflecting on where we have been and where we are going. Assessment practice and scholarship have evolved as students and institutions have changed, and as our own learning has shaped our practices and philosophies. Our questions, assumptions, and methods continue to evolve as we understand more about effective approaches to teaching and learning, and develop new technologies and tools. And as more people from diverse disciplines join the field in new and hybrid roles, we discover new opportunities to approach our work. We as professionals evolve as the field evolves.

Keynote Speakers

This year’s conference features keynote speaker Dr. Natasha Jankowski, Director of the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment. Dr. Jankowski has brought a fresh perspective and a sense of humor to our work that we can all appreciate!

Join us on Friday, November 17th for a special 30th Anniversary Keynote with Dr. Kate McConnell, Senior Director for Research and Assessment at AAC&U. Dr. McConnell has served Virginia for many years through her roles at Virginia Tech and through leadership of the Virginia Assessment Group.
