Grant Summary

$75,090 over 12 months to explore the integration of learning outcomes assessment into Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) programs. A set of activities (survey of active PFF programs, production of a white paper, national conference) will be undertaken to identify the ways in which PFF programs could enhance graduate students' skill and understanding of assessing learning outcomes, to explore how PFF's programmatic features could serve to address gaps in the current practice and dialogue on learning outcomes assessment, and to identify gaps and potential linkages between national assessment experts and existing faculty development programs.
