CON08.01a - The Learning Outcome Assessment Consortium: Multi-Institutional Collaboration for Learning Outcomes Assessment in Ontario

This session will discuss the ongoing facilitation of a consortium consisting of three colleges and three universities that was created by HEQCO to promote the assessment of higher-order cognitive skills (e.g., critical thinking and communication) at the institution level. In December 2012, Queen’s University, Durham College, Humber College, the University of Toronto, the University of Guelph and George Brown College set out to create, pilot and test various assessment tools across their institutions. The session will begin with an overview of why the consortium was created, followed by a short description of the six projects. Since none of the projects has been completed, the session will focus on common best practices, successes and challenges encountered thus far.

Attendees of this session will be able to identify common challenges in learning outcomes assessment. In addition, they will be able to describe effective assessment methods that could be used at their respective institutions. If you are interested in learning more about the learning outcomes assessment practices that are currently being used in Ontario colleges and universities, this is the session for you!
