An interactive workshop by Dr. Virginia S. Lee, Virginia S. Lee & Associates The focus of TAMU’s QEP—integrative learning for lifelong learning—is the dream of many colleges and universities. However, closing the gap between dream and successful implementation is extremely challenging and tests the university’s collective intelligence and discipline. In this interactive session, we will explore together the challenges and extraordinary opportunities of integrative learning for lifelong learning for students and TAMU as an institution through the lens of assessment. In the context of the guidelines for college- and branch campus-based implementation, we will consider selected models of assessment of key elements of TAMU’s QEP—selected university student learning outcomes, high-impact learning experiences, student reflection, integrative learning and lifelong learning—their interrelationships. We will also explore what these assessments can tell us about students’ evolving capacities for integrative and lifelong learning and TAMU’s ability to support those developing capacities.
