2017 Virginia Assessment Group Conference
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, this event finds the group reflecting on where we have been and where we are going. Assessment practice and scholarship have evolved as students and institutions have changed, and learning has shaped practices and philosophies. 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.
Virginia Assessment Group is pleased to announce that Dr. Natasha Jankowski will give the keynote address. Dr. Natasha Jankowski is Director of the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA) and Research Assistant Professor with the Department of Education Policy, Organization and Leadership at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. She is co-author with her NILOA colleagues of the 2015 book, Using Evidence of Student Learning to Improve Higher Education. She holds a Ph.D. in Higher Education from the University of Illinois, an M.A. in Higher Education Administration from Kent State University, and a B.A. in Philosophy from Illinois State University.
