Mar/Apr: Assessment of Student Learning for Instruction Librarians (UW-Madison SLIS-CES)

March 16 - May 8
2.6 CEUs/26 LEUs

Assessment of student learning is an important competency for librarians working in information literacy programs. Systematically gathering, analyzing, and acting on information about student learning can guide your work, and having data to share about the library’s contributions to student learning can improve your collaborations and relationships with faculty, administrators, and other stakeholders. Yet many librarians are unsure of where to start with assessment and how to focus assessment projects to have maximum impact. In this course, we’ll discuss the purposes of assessment, look at real assessment examples, and experiment with practical approaches to assessing student learning.
