Fall Forum to weigh student learning, engagement

The Student Learning and Engagement Fall Forum will provide an opportunity for interested parties to examine how those two vital factors combine at Western Carolina University.

The forum will begin at 3 p.m. Monday, Sept. 21, in Conference Room A of the Blue Ridge Conference Center.

“The purpose of the forum is to discuss how and what WCU students learn during their college experience, how that learning connects with WCU’s mission as a community engaged university, and how our assessment of student learning informs our teaching and co-curricular practices,” said Carol Burton, associate provost.

Discussion will focus on results from faculty engagement surveys, from the National Survey of Student Engagement, from the Collegiate Learning Assessment and summaries from the Student Learning Outcomes Assessment Committee.

Coffee and light refreshments will be served at the forum, hosted by the Office of the Provost, Office of Institutional Planning and Effectiveness, Office of Undergraduate Studies, Division of Student Affairs and the Center for Service Learning.
