I recently sat down, virtually over Google Plus On-Air Hangouts, with Lisa Endersby, Student Experience Advisor at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology on another episode of Student Affairs Live!
Lisa and I talked about beginning assessment strategies in Student Affairs and Higher Education, as well as her ideas on best practices and tips to get started.
Please tell us your professional story and your role at your institution.
- What makes Assessment such an important part of our Student Affairs work?
- What’s the difference between student affairs in Canada and the US?
- Let’s talk about the process of starting an assessment project. How should one get started?
- How do you use Assessment in your day to day work?
- What are some common challenges that folks may encounter if they are new to developing and implementing assessment ideas? Blind spots?
- If I was a graduate student, wanting to go into this area of student affairs, what steps should I take?
- What are some assessment projects you wish you had more time for?
