EPPL 525: Assessment & Evaluation to Promote College Student Learning

This course is designed to explore the foundations of the current interest in assessing and evaluating outcomes of undergraduate education.  It develops a historical and theoretical foundation for conceptualizing "outcomes" of undergraduate education with a specific interest in how assessment and evaluation can be employed to promote student learning. (Offered every Spring)

EPPL 751: Integrated Learning

This course is designed to assist students in investigating integrated learning as a collegiate outcome, defined as the ability to link various skills and knowledge learned in a variety of contexts.  College students lead complex lives, and learn from numerous sources both in and out of the traditional classroom (e.g., coursework, home life, employment, student organizations, residence life, internships, and so on).  Upon graduation, they are expected to make broad learning connections in increasingly globalized workplaces.  Students in this discussion-based course will consider how college educators can develop intentional experiences for promoting integration of learning among college students.
