Please join your fellow Pathways instructors and program administrators to review Pathways assessment data from 2018-2019 and discuss potential program improvements. This event is designed to generate dialogue related to student achievement within the Pathways Core Concepts. The resulting feedback will be utilized to improve the Pathways program, student learning outcomes, Core Concept rubrics, the assessment process, etc.

Presenters will provide an overview of Pathways assessment data submitted for the Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 semesters and participants will then have the opportunity to join an in-depth discussion related to one of the following six Pathways Core Concepts: Discourse, Critical Thinking in the Humanities, Reasoning in the Social Sciences, Reasoning in the Natural Sciences, Quantitative and Computational Thinking, or Critique and Practice in Design and the Arts. Data for the Core Concept of Critical Analysis of Identity and Equity in the United States and the Pathways Integrative Concepts (Ethical Reasoning and Intercultural and Global Awareness) will be shared and discussed at a separate event planned for the Spring 2020 semester.

This event is sponsored by the Office of General Education and the Assessment and Evaluation unit in the Office of Academic Decision Support
