This is the sixth and final session in Series III of Architecture for Global Learning and is part of the Spring Group: Global Learning for Your Goals. Learn about our other Spring Group sessions: Global Learning for Career Education and Global Learning Beyond the Classroom.
This AGL session explores assessment of global learning for accreditation standards, even as those standards are still sometimes being defined. Institutional administrators and faculty of discipline specific programs are challenged to know where and how their campus or department's global learning initiatives respond to education policy reforms, student and community expectations, and pedagogical advances that meet accreditation requirements.
Presenters discuss their own experiences and offer models of approaches to leveraging global learning assessment that meet accreditation requirements. Those who manage, or are involved with the assessment of global learning curricula or co-curricular activities, and who also need to better understand how this assessment process supports accreditation will benefit from this session.
- Present examples of assessment of global learning that contributes to the accreditation process;
- Outline where global or international programs offices contribute to accreditation and accreditation review;
- Discuss different institutional or discipline specific approaches of including global learning assessment towards accreditation standards;
- Examine the challenges of communicating or highlighting the importance of global learning related programming to assessment offices or accrediting bodies;
- Provide handouts for participants to consider when comparing their own assessment/accreditation processes with that of the presenters'.
