Enjoy the luxury of a day spent with colleagues sharing ideas about learning outcomes assessment based on a variety of non-traditional methods, e.g.
       Writing across the curriculum
       Group projects

We will
                       discuss use of MI Theory in assessing learning outcomes
       share our ideas, frustrations, triumphs, copies of applicable research articles, and assessment activities
       brainstorm more ideas for use in formal and informal curricula, inside and outside the classroom, across the disciplines
       record our wisdom, knowledge, and best practices

As an extra benefit this year we will be joined by Dr. Ellen Weber, Director of the new MITA (Multiple Intelligences Teaching Approach) Center at Houghton.  She has worked extensively in the field, including with Howard Gardner, and shares our interest in infusing these theories in education at the postsecondary level.

Who should attend?
Anyone interested in learning outcomes assessment, including
                       classroom instructors in all disciplines
       learning assistance personnel
       student services personnel
