Webinar: Integrating civic outcomes across a major or program: Curriculum design and mapping for civic learning

February 19, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Zoom Web Video Conference Call

REGISTER HERE In this webinar attendees will focus on identifying, articulating, and mapping civic learning and developmental outcomes (civic identity, civic-mindedness, civic agency, civic literacy, intercultural competency, etc.) for their program of study or major.

A curriculum mapping exercise can show gaps in learning, overlaps in content, and indicate where weaknesses or opportunities can and should be addressed.     Anne Weiss has over seven years of experience in leading collaborative assessment, evaluation, and inquiry projects focused on resolving complex problems within higher education institutions- especially as it relates to civic or community engagement.  In the role of Director of Assessment with Campus Compact of Indiana, Anne develops data collection instruments, conducts literature reviews, performs data collection,…
