Fall 2009 Provost's Seminar on Teaching: What Are They Learning? Approaches to Assessing Student Learning

Convened each term, Provost’s Seminars on Teaching provide an opportunity for lively and substantive dialogue about a wide range of teaching and learning issues campus wide, across disciplinary boundaries. The Fall 2009 Seminar on the assessment of student learning included a keynote address by Carol Schneider, President of the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) and a poster fair documenting some of the many assessment projects currently underway at U-M.
