Bridging Student Learning Outcomes and Success Data √ §

Part of the FDC Leadership & Teaching Series!

Thursday, October 18, 2018
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
University Center : 310
When institutions bridge student learning outcomes and success data, they gain capacity to aggregate, disaggregate, and reaggregate learning data to answer targeted questions about student learning, achievement gaps, and intervention effectiveness. Integrating direct and indirect evidence can yield deeper understanding of student performance, add depth and nuance to predictive analytics, and offer insights that can foster equity through enhanced capabilities to pinpoint achievement gaps. This program is designed to help faculty, staff, and other campus leaders create a culture of data-informed decision making, empowering them to synthesize evidence into decisions that foster inclusive excellence.

In this interactive presentation, you’ll learn how your UMBC colleagues are integrating and interpreting direct and indirect data to gain deeper understanding of how students are learning and where they need additional support.

UMBC’s Faculty Development Center continues the Leadership & Teaching Series launched in March 2018!

Sessions in this series are designed to help you to reflect on challenges in teaching facing higher education and how you, in your role as a formal or informal leader at UMBC, can contribute to innovative solutions. Faculty and staff colleagues will address specific challenges in interactive presentations designed to help you explore key questions, for example,

  • How can you use research to improve teaching, learning, and curriculum design?
  • How can you connect to other teaching leaders to identify common challenges and devise shared solutions?
  • How can you contribute to a collaborative culture of evidence-based teaching to improve student learning?
  • How can you identify policies, processes, and technologies that make it easier to gather and use evidence of student learning?
Who should attend?
  • Chairs, deans, graduate program directors, and others in formal leadership roles
  • Faculty and staff with informal leadership roles or who aspire to be campus leaders
