Empathy; Conceptual understanding; Sensitivity to multiple perspectives; Problem solving; Sourcing; Data analysis; Recognizing limits of knowledge Framing Questions

14 02/21/0314 QUE Objectives Development and use of standards for lower division to facilitate the transition to upper division within 4-year institutions and for transfer from 2-year to 4-year institutions Development and use of standards for graduation from college Levels 14 and 16 represent performance-bound learning [not the time it takes to get there] Learner-centered learning, not time-specific or place-specific learning

15 02/21/0315 QUE Deliverables Department and campus draft learning outcomes, performance descriptions, collections of student work, and assessments of student learning

16 02/21/0316 Aligned course  ---   ---- 

17 02/21/0317 Aligned Curriculum A B D F G I J LO1LO2LO3LO4LO5 E C H Program Courses

18 02/21/0318 Value of involvement in QUE Conversations of faculty across institutions => more trust engendered between partners => learning from experiences of other institutions Value of Learning Community => for both faculty and students More emphasis on student reflection => e-portfolio is a vehicle

19 02/21/0319 Best Practices Make expectations for students explicit Give students opportunity to practice skills by engaging content being presented Faculty collaboration leading to reinforcement of student development through learning outcomes across courses rather than just in bookend courses

20 02/21/0320 Best Practices Make expectations for faculty explicit Give faculty opportunity to practice skills by engaging content being presented Faculty collaboration leading to reinforcement of faculty development of learning outcomes across courses rather than just in bookend courses

21 02/21/0321 Some final points about developing assessment Keeping looping back to actual student work It’s less about establishing “Measures” than about building “Communities of Judgement” It doesn’t stand still Two most important adjectives are –draft and voluntary
