Register for The Community College Conference on Learning Assessment

Date: Sunday, February 17 – Tuesday, February 19, 2019
Location: Rosen Plaza Hotel, Orlando

In a few short months, Valencia will host the Community College Conference on Learning Assessment right here in Orlando on Sunday, February 17 – Tuesday, February 19, 2019, at the Rosen Plaza Hotel.

This conference will provide participants with theoretical and practical support for developing and implementing learning assessment activities that take into account the lived experience in today’s community. Authentic assessment of student learning requires an ability to review the results and implications of learning assessment to determine how they impact curricular design. What an institution does with the results of learning assessment measures can have a significant impact on student learning.

The opening keynote speaker, Claude M. Steele, is an American social psychologist and a professor of psychology at Stanford University. He is best known for his work on stereotype threat and its application to minority student academic performance. His earlier work dealt with research on the self (e.g., self-image, self- affirmation) as well as the role of self-regulation in addictive behaviors. In 2010, he released his book, “Whistling Vivaldi and Other Clues to How Stereotypes Affect Us,” summarizing years of research on stereotype threat and the under-performance of minority students in higher education.

This conference was designed for you — college employees who have responsibility for learning assessment, faculty development, student development, curriculum, institutional effectiveness, and regional and program-specific accreditation including:

  • Teaching faculty
  • Deans
  • Librarians
  • Counselors
  • College presidents
  • Institutional research, effectiveness and assessment staff
  • Academic affairs administrators and staff
  • Student affairs administrators and staff

Don’t miss this opportunity to engage in the conversation and take advantage of this valuable learning opportunity at the special Valencia discounted rate of $410.
