Program Outcomes Asessment Learning Community (CTE6773): Assessing the Affective DomainExport this event to calendar

Wednesday, September 25, 2019 — 12:00 PM to 1:15 PM EDT

Facilitators: Veronica Brown (Centre for Teaching Excellence) and Bob Sproule (School of Accounting and Finance)
Locations: MC 2036 and MC 2036A


At this month’s session, we will explore Elliot Eisner’s expressive outcomes and the affective domain. How do we “measure” values and attitudes? Is it time to reframe our conceptions of “measuring” outcomes? We will host a roundtable discussion about the challenges and opportunities associated with developing and assessing these affective outcomes. This session is part of the Program Outcomes Assessment Learning Community – all are welcome.

Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs)

By participating in this community group, you will have an opportunity to explore:

• The role of learning outcomes within a Program

• The assessment of learning outcomes

• The relationship between outcomes, activities and assessments
