Shannon reported on the meetings with program faculty to date (discussing annual reports).
There was general discussion about timing of a campus forum to provide general update information, re-iterate assessment for student learning philosophy, and to explain the pilot liberal education project. Members agreed that a concise, but informative email update should be done this spring, announcing a campus forum in the second week of fall semester. Dates will be announced in the email update.
Jackie announced that an assessment budget for FY12 has been approved, allowing 75% buyout for Shannon for next academic year.
Jackie circulated a copy of the description of CASL that is currently on our web site and asked for conversation around (1) membership; and (2) charge. Originally, CASL was advising on the assessment system; Jackie feels more need for leadership in promoting a culture of assessment for improvement of learning. Jackie will draft changes based on input and will bring a proposal to the next meeting.
