This live briefing will engage you to try using non-traditional data collection methods that are action-oriented, participatory, and entertaining.  The presenter will highlight techniques commonly used in strategic planning processes that can be used for the collection of data and artifacts to enhance the student or staff experience, as well as provide suggestions for use of these data.  

Using Angelo & Cross’s “Classroom Assessment Techniques,” and Gray, Brown, and Macanufo’s “Gamestorming: A playbook for innovators, rulebreakers, and changemakers,” participants will consider few different techniques to obtain feedback from students, faculty, and staff.  The approaches highlighted are useful to both collect data and encourage participants to elaborate on the learning activities or programming they have experienced.  These approaches can also be easily transitioned into strategic planning activities.  Attendees should leave this session ready to implement new and exciting ideas about assessment they can readily deploy on their campuses.

Leaning Outcomes:

  1. Participants will be able to identify and select interesting and engaging assessment techniques for assessing programs, events, or other educational opportunities.

  2. Participants will be able to design/customize interesting assessment techniques for assessing programs, events, or other educational opportunities.

  3. Participants will be able to plan for using the data from non-traditional assessment methods in supporting unit or institutional assessment processes
