December 6th Meeting

Greetings CAAG Members,

Please join us on Friday, December 6th from 10:00am to 12:00pm to discuss Fearing to Fail: How Common Assessment Practices Cause Stagnation.


Many of the assessment reports that come in from academic and co-curricular programs indicate that “all outcomes are met” – as if that were a good thing. When programs can demonstrate that they are reaching all of their learning goals, there is no reason to change. Curriculum doesn’t need to change, pedagogy can remain the same, student engagement seems to be fine, and there is no need to really talk about transformation. This session explores the fear-of-failure that is part of higher education and develop action plans to overcome this so that we find the opportunities to improve and transform.

Dr. Catherine M. Wehlburg, Dean for the School of Sciences, Mathematics, and Education, Marymount University
