dB-SERC lunch discussion 12-8-2017: Learning improvement in Higher Education
Discussion leader: Dr. Brian Leventhal (James Madison University)
When: Friday December 8 from 12 - 1 pm
Where: 102 Benedum Hall
Abstract: Extensive focus continues to be devoted to the development and assessment of student learning outcomes. During this talk, Dr. Brian Leventhal will present on the learning improvement model by Fulcher, Good, Coleman, & Smith (2014) used by the Center for Assessment of Research Studies (CARS) at James Madison University. A conceptual breakdown of learning improvement in higher education can be made into three distinct categories: Assessment, Faculty Development, and Program Theory. Work in these three categories together contributes to improved student learning. Research being performed at the Center for Assessment and Research Studies will be presented using examples from varying disciplines that relate to Assessment, Faculty Development, and Program theory.
Brian C. Leventhal earned his PhD from the University of Pittsburgh with a focus on research methodology, measurement, and statistics. He is currently an assistant professor at James Madison University in the department of graduate psychology and an assistant assessment specialist at the Center for Assessment and Research Studies.
