Assessment Resources

 

  • Leadership Exchange: Solutions for Student Affairs Management
  • Learning Reconsidered
    • Learning Reconsidered is an argument for the integrated use of all of higher education’s resources in the education and preparation of the whole student. It is also an introduction to new ways of understanding and supporting learning and development as intertwined, inseparable elements of the student experience. It advocates for transformative education – a holistic process of learning that places the student at the center of the learning experience.
  • Learning Reconsidered 2
    •  Now we have Learning Reconsidered 2, with an extended title modified only by the addition of the word "implementing."  Learning Reconsidered 2works, like its predecessor, in the active context of academic life.  It amplifies the original publication in two ways: first, by reporting the actual experience of student affairs educators who have developed and assessed learning outcomes, found points of collaboration across campus, or identified new ways to link their work to learning activities, and second, by exploring in greater depth how the ideas and concepts in Learning Reconsidered can support all campus educators in finding ways to use all the resources in the education and preparation of the whole student.
