The Learning, Teaching, and Assessment Forum (LTAF) is an annual event sponsored by the Office of the Provost, in collaboration with the University Assessment/Accreditation Council.
This university-wide event is designed to:
- Provide faculty, doctoral students, postdocs, administrators, and staff the opportunity to showcase their assessment initiatives at the course, department/program, school, and/or university levels;
- Share and highlight teaching, learning and assessment innovations, strategies, practices, and outcomes;
- Demonstrate the University’s assessment framework in practice; and
- Promote dialogue about assessment, its purpose, and its value for improving learning and teaching.
This year's theme is: Examining the Evidence of Student Learning.
The forum will take place on November 16, 2016 at the Norris University Center (Evanston). Proposal submissions must be received by September 16, 2016.
We will post additional details about the 2016 forum at the beginning of academic year. Registration for the forum will open in September 2016.
