Value and Impact of Assessment: The Forest and the Leaves
The new NEASC accreditation standards, introduced in 2015, emphasize assessment and learning outcomes without specifically highlighting libraries. While this can be viewed as a challenge, it is also an opportunity to engage in new conversations on the essential role libraries play in the higher education landscape, especially our contributions to institutional goals. What role can you play in shaping these discussions on your campus? What strategies can you use to change or enhance working relationships between academic librarians and other campus constituents, including information technology, institutional research, and institutional assessment, to ensure library efforts align with institutional goals?
The ACRL/NEC Leadership Development Committee is pleased to offer a program that provides multiple perspectives from librarians and faculty who have expertise in assessment, cultural change, and learning outcomes. This program highlights new methods of developing effective leadership strategies that can help our institutions achieve their goals by creating culture change and other opportunities that ensure libraries are included in conversations about outcomes and assessment.
