Higher education institutions of all types are facing intensified attention to assessment and accountability issues. Academic libraries are increasingly connecting with colleagues and campus stakeholders to design and implement assessment that documents their contributions to institutional priorities. In this day-long workshop on strategic and sustainable assessment, participants will identify institutional priorities and campus partners, design an assessment project grounded in action research, and prepare a plan for communicating the project results. This workshop is based on the highly successful ACRL Assessment in Action program curriculum.
The workshop is led by one or two expert presenters at locations across the country upon request. Please contact ACRL Program Officer Chase Ollis at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-545-2433 ext. 2521 to discuss dates and locations, pricing, and for complete workshop details.
