Attending ACPA’s Annual Convention March 28 – April 1 in Metro DC or AAC&U’s Shaping Faculty Roles Conference April 2 – 4 in San Diego? If so, make sure to come to my sessions to hear about some of the new research at HERI using CIRP surveys.
At ACPA on Monday March 30th I will be presenting “Using Factors and Scales to Measure Learning Outcomes and Gains.” This session will discuss new research that CIRP is conducting on the underlying constructs of its three student surveys (The Freshman Survey, Your First College Year, and the College Senior Survey) and will give some examples of how these constructs can be used in campus assessment. The session time is 10:15 AM – 11:30 AM and the location is Gaylord National – Chesapeake F.
At AAC&U I will be presenting “Teaching Today’s Student: Faculty Perspectives and Student Expectations” on Friday, April 3. This session will use nationally representative data from the 2007-08 HERI Faculty Survey and the 2008 Freshman Survey to explore the current pedagogical practices of faculty and their attitudes toward the teaching and learning process and how well this matches with the expectations and experiences of students. The session time is 10:45 AM – 12:15 PM and a location for the session has yet to be announced.
